GreyStone Connect provides high-speed broadband service with an all-fiber infrastructure to its first customer

GreyStone Connect, the fiber subsidiary of GreyStone Power Corporation, is pleased to announce the connection of its first customer to gigabit-speed internet.

John Martin’s connection to the GreyStone Connect fiber broadband network means residents in Chattahoochee Hills now have access to up to 2 gigabits per second (Gbps) internet service that is among the fastest and most robust in the nation.

Martin stated that in the past, he never had the internet speed or consistency that he was looking for, but he looks forward to seeing that change with GreyStone Connect. “From day one when this project started, I’ve gotten nothing but superior responses and assistance from GreyStone. They did exactly what they said they were going to do,” said Martin. “I think that I’ll have consistently fast, reliable service at a great price, and that’s all I can ask for.” 

GreyStone Connect Board Chair Maribeth Wansley feels that the project will be life-changing for those impacted. “This will close the digital divide for the citizens of Chattahoochee Hills. Many residents have no connectivity and most have poor connectivity. I look forward to seeing the positive impact that GreyStone Connect will have in the community,” said Wansley.

In May 2023, GreyStone Connect announced their fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) project to launch and deploy an approximately 400-mile fiber network. The first phase of deployment will provide high-speed internet access to unserved and underserved members across four west Georgia counties, including southern Fulton County, southern Douglas County, portions of eastern Carroll County and a small section of southern Paulding County.

“We are thrilled to mark this milestone as GreyStone takes a giant leap forward in bridging the digital divide,” said Gary Miller, president/CEO of GreyStone Power. “Connecting our inaugural customer is a testament to our commitment to serving the unserved and underserved communities in our territory with top-tier broadband services. As we embark on this journey, we are dedicated to empowering individuals and fostering connectivity that transforms lives,” said Miller.

GreyStone Power VP of Broadband Services Eric Lannen emphasizes the community focus behind GreyStone Connect’s mission. “We are focused on our members like they are family, unlike our competitors, where you are just another customer,” Lannen said.

Lannen added that the GreyStone Connect fiber buildout also stands apart from the competition. “We are building a more advanced service than our competition by building a redundant fiber backbone, which will provide another level of reliability. We are also more focused on the quality and flexibility to service rural communities rather than looking at the communities as a return on investment. Our investment is providing our communities with the opportunity to work from home and letting our next generation have the same opportunity to access the internet as the communities with multiple providers,” Lannen said.

As construction efforts continue, GreyStone Connect is poised to reach even more members in 2024, advancing a future of widespread connectivity and digital empowerment within our community.
