LUMBERTON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Highline announced its plan to deliver lightning-fast fiber-optic internet service—enabling reliable gigabit-level speeds—for the Hardin County cities of Lumberton, Silsbee, and Sour Lake in Southeast Texas. By expanding its service areas, Highline advances its core mission of providing real high-speed internet access to unserved, underserved, and unhappily served households and communities across the country. Lumberton, Silsbee, and Sour Lake are just some of the many places in Texas where Highline seeks to make a measurable difference to improve education, healthcare, and economic development for everyone, in addition to making it considerably easier to work and school from home. Highline’s future-proof and affordable fiber internet service will significantly enhance the opportunities available to residents in Hardin County, ensuring that no one will be left behind or hindered by inadequate internet speeds.
Highline partners with towns, cities, and counties to bring high-speed fiber internet to thousands of dwellings across the United States in an ongoing effort to close the digital divide, improve quality of life, and enable full and equal access to an increasingly online world. Furthermore, the internet and voice services provided by Highline carry no annual contracts and no throttled speeds—meaning that each customer has unlimited data and unlimited capacity for streaming and downloading, thanks to the state-of-the-art fiber-optic network Highline is deploying.
Moreover, Highline prioritizes the customer experience and promotes the “Highline Way” of doing business, which entails connecting customers to a reliable high-speed network that supports all their internet-related needs and then backing that service with a dedicated, caring team of local, US-based customer-support specialists.
