Habersham EMC is conducting an expansion project to bring fiber optic service to the communities it serves. The project is exploring the feasibility of providing fiber optic service to more members without financial assistance from state and federal grants.
The Board of Directors recognizes that HEMC has an opportunity to support our members and communities with advanced broadband and the many advantages it enables.If the project has adequate support from our members, then it will be expanded to other areas. However, due to the construction costs, that will have to be done in phases.
