CHARLOTTE, N.C. — May 22, 2024 — Brightspeed, the nation’s fourth largest fiber broadband builder focused on empowering more homes with ultrafast, reliable internet, announces additional construction of its Brightspeed Fiber Internet network in communities surrounding Raleigh. The company is currently working to connect more than 86,000 addresses across the Triangle Region of its home state of North Carolina.

Brightspeed Fiber Internet connectivity will soon be available in Johnston, Harnett, Vance, Person, Orange, Moore and Chatham counties and construction is already underway for approximately 8,000 locations. Nearly 19,000 addresses are fully enabled with Brightspeed Fiber Internet so far, giving residents access to the state-of-the-art network. Once connected, customers can expect straightforward bills, easy-to-understand plans and internet connections that just work.

What to Expect During Construction
Residents are likely already seeing Brightspeed trucks in their local neighborhoods as crews work to bring families and businesses online. Brightspeed’s highest priority is working quickly and efficiently within local communities, keeping safety at the forefront.

North Carolinians can check for fiber availability in their area by visiting and signing up to receive alerts when service is available at their location.

The Triangle is Getting the Best in Broadband
The Brightspeed Fiber Internet network leverages the latest XGS-PON (10-Gigabit Symmetric Passive Optical Network) technology to bring gig-speed capabilities and consistent responsiveness that enable multi-device households to connect, work, study, stream, communicate and game efficiently and reliably in North Carolina.

Brightspeed Fiber is More Than Just Internet
