GREENSBORO – “NEK Broadband [is] in the final steps of preparing to hang fiber on utility poles,” wrote NEK Broadband’s Community Relations Manager, Kitty Ufford-Chase in a May 29 Greensboro/Glover Front Porch Forum (FPF) post.

She said, “The initial construction will be from the Craftsbury town line down to and around Lake Caspian. Expansion into most other areas of Greensboro will be ongoing later this year and into early 2025.”

NEK Broadband offers high-speed internet with “a local commitment to quality service,” said Ufford-Chase, who continued, “Our speed levels are from 50Mbps to a full Gigabyte per second. There are never any data caps or contracts. You can also bundle landline phone service with your internet and keep the same number.”

“The ARPA funds that the Greensboro community gave to NEK Broadband last year helped accelerate and expand our ability to serve your area,” she added.

“Thanks for the update. Looking forward to connecting to NEK Broadband,” wrote Ricky Albores the next day, in another FPF post.
