Duplin County

DUPLIN COUNTY, FASTER INTERNET IS ON THE WAY!

FOCUS Broadband was recently awarded a grant through the North Carolina Department of Information Technology GREAT Grant Program totaling $4 million dollars to provide to provide a 100% fiber optic network with speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second to more than 900 residents and businesses located in rural communities near the Chinquapin, Cypress Creek and Beulaville. FOCUS Broadband will contribute $535,000 in matching funds to complete the project.

In 2021, FOCUS Broadband was awarded two grants through the North Carolina Department of Information Technology GREAT Grant Program to provide services to homes and businesses in unserved and underserved areas of Duplin County. When combined, the two grants will allow FOCUS Broadband to provide a 100% fiber optic network with speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second to over 1,047 residents and businesses in the rural communities near Rose Hill, Magnolia and Teachey. We are currently working to construct the network that will be used to serve these areas.

We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the many residents, farmers, business owners and community leaders who supported us in our work to secure these grants. Your support was a key factor in helping make our application a success. We are excited to be able to serve you.

Service is available in areas of Duplin County near Rose Hill, Teachey, and Wallace. Construction east and west of Magnolia has also begun. FOCUS Broadband has several construction crews working throughout our grant areas to make up for the delays caused by supply chain shortages. We anticipate service to become available in even more areas in the coming months. We are thankful that Four County EMC has allowed us to use some of their fiber to connect FOCUS’ Duplin County network back to our existing network in Columbus County. This partnership has helped us make service available while we wait for our permanent connection to be completed.
