GoNetspeed Begins Construction to Power Augusta with Future-Proof Fiber Internet

AUGUSTA, Maine (May 29, 2024)—GoNetspeed today announced that construction has begun on the infrastructure that will provide residents and businesses throughout Augusta with high-speed fiber internet. Through GoNetspeed’s fully funded $3.5 million investment, more than 5,000 homes and businesses will have the opportunity to tap into 100% fiber internet with access to multi-gigabit speeds.

“GoNetspeed is proud to soon be equipping another Maine community with 100% fiber internet. As we officially begin construction in Augusta, the community will soon experience a new quality of life online,” said Richard Clark, GoNetspeed President & CEO. “Augusta residents and businesses are one step closer to gaining access to GoNetspeed’s fast, reliable fiber internet. We understand the importance of a stable internet connection and great customer service, and we are thrilled to soon offer our service in Augusta.”

As construction expands throughout the area, the first customers will be eligible for service installation this summer with construction expected to be complete by end of summer of 2024. Upon the completion of the network, thousands will have access to GoNetspeed’s symmetrical fiber internet speeds, allowing customers to upload just as fast as they can download. Residents and businesses interested may visit to sign up for priority installation once service is available in their area.

Fiber-optic internet equips communities with cutting-edge internet service, fostering community growth, competition, and economic development. With access to 100% fiber internet, Augusta will soon be powered by faster speeds and better reliability, positioning the community for a successful future online.
