Fybe Plans for New Fiber Connectivity Builds in Elizabeth City 

Elizabeth City, N.C.– Fybe, a broadband service provider and a subsidiary of Roanoke Cooperative, confirms expanding services in Elizabeth City. The expansion brings fiber internet to over 14,620 homes and businesses in this community. 

“We are committed to bringing reliable and fast broadband to more of our state,” said Bo Coughlin, COO of Fybe.  

This significant investment in the local community brings Fiber to the Home (FTTH) technology, which is less susceptible to weather-related outages and other interference that above-ground traditional cables experience. These connections can send data as fast as about 70% of the speed of light and provide broadband connections at speeds of up to 1 Gbps. 

“I am excited about the positive impact this partnership will have on Elizabeth City,” said Montre Freeman, City Manager. “It’s setting the stage for near limitless possibilities, and we can’t wait to see what’s next. Thank you, Fybe, for helping improve the quality of life of our residents.” 

Fybe offers a variety of internet speed options to best serve the needs and budgets of local residents and businesses. The provider is committed to positioning the community for success when it comes to reliable connectivity for work, school, telehealth and beyond.
