The team brings a combined 100+ years of experience in the telecommunications industry, positioning HyperFiber to fulfill its mission to build a better internet experience, hyper-focused on the customer.

“Today, the internet is a commodity. Anyone can be faster or cheaper. We built HyperFiber with a customer-first approach,” said Jerry Dow, EVP Chief Marketing Officer for HyperFiber. “Customers are tired of the ‘cable game’ defined by layers of asterisks, discounts, contracts, fees, and double talk. People want a provider that is easy to understand, transparent, and reliable. That’s why our executive team is dedicated to doing more than just building ‘Hyper-Connected Cities.’ We are delivering future-proof internet without the hassle and hidden fees. We want HyperFiber to be the last provider decision a customer ever needs to make.”

Leading the executive team is Dan Kennedy, an industry veteran with an extensive career developing, managing, and marketing complex telecommunications networks throughout the United States. With previous positions as President and CEO of i3 Broadband, and various other leadership roles in companies such as CountryWide Broadband, Fidelity Communication, Memphis Networx, Digital Skyway, and Lucent Technologies, Dan’s expertise will be invaluable in driving HyperFiber’s growth as President and CEO.
