Today we had our Hoover Chamber of Commerce Ribbon cutting for our Highway 280 corridor project, and so it was super exciting. We had a lot of people show up, a lot of great food. Had a live DJ, it was amazing. This Highway 280 build is six unique route miles that we are going to place fiber in the ground ourselves, and provide connectivity for local businesses along this route. This provides another option for these local businesses that honestly, they’ve been craving for. We’ve identified Hoover along this corridor as a data desert, which means we’re here to save the day.
Fiber is important because it has the power to change communities. It allows businesses to thrive, to get them the connectivity they need, and for local communities to attract and retain businesses. It is a unique connectivity for businesses to grow. As we’re coming out of this pandemic, we still are doing video calls, and so a lot of businesses need rock solid connectivity to make sure that they can hold those business calls.
If you’re a law office, you’re sending large files to and from clients. If you’re a doctor’s office, you’re sending X-ray files. If you’re an IT company, you’re talking back and forth from the cloud, and you need the infrastructure, reliable connectivity to make sure your business can function.
We serve businesses large and small. We have boy services, we have managed services, dedicated fiber internet, dark fiber, Ethernet. What we do here at Unity really well is connectivity, and that’s something I’m really proud of. We’re super excited to be a part of the Hoover community, they’ve welcomed us with open arms. We’re here to build the future with them and grow the City of Hoover for many years to come.
We’re grateful to see y’all make this type of investment in our city that fits really right into our model in how we’re thinking. So congratulations, and we hope that we can be a great partner with you. Thank you very much.
Absolutely. Thank you.
