Revolutionizing Rural Internet Access: McGill is Proud to Offer Fiber Optics Services


In today’s digital age, access to fast and reliable internet connectivity has become a necessity for individuals, businesses, and communities alike. While urban areas have witnessed significant advancements in internet infrastructure, rural regions have often been left behind.

Recognizing the dire need for bridging the urban-rural gap and expanding access to high-speed internet, McGill has been at the forefront of providing fiber optics services to underserved areas.

With over 2,000 miles of fiber optic projects under our belt since 2019, we have showcased our dedication to shaping communities throughout the Southeast by revolutionizing internet access.

McGill Environmental Services Practice Area Leader Jon Swaim said, “We have worked on numerous projects since we began offering fiber optics services — mostly focusing on rural areas that lack proper internet access, particularly along the east coast. From Robeson County, Lumberton, Laurinburg, Fayetteville, Columbus, Brunswick County, and Chowan County to Pickens County and Myrtle Beach in South Carolina — McGill has worked tirelessly to bring high-speed internet to many of our local communities.”

Importance of Fiber Optics for the Communities we Serve


High-speed internet empowers businesses by enhancing communication capabilities with customers, suppliers, and employees. This leads to increased productivity, improved sales, and access to new markets, ultimately boosting profitability.


Access to high-speed internet not only aids in business retention but also attracts external companies to rural areas. Broadband access plays a crucial role in businesses’ decision-making process while selecting new locations, thus promoting economic growth.


Fiber optics enables farmers to leverage precision agriculture and remote monitoring technology. By optimizing irrigation, conserving resources, and increasing yields, rural communities can embrace sustainable farming practices.


High-speed internet paves the way for telemedicine technologies, allowing patients in rural areas to connect with healthcare specialists through video conferencing, advanced monitoring services, and remote diagnostics. This breakthrough has the potential to save lives by providing timely access to healthcare resources.


Fiber optics brings students in rural areas on par with their urban counterparts, offering access to online educational resources, advanced courses, and opportunities for remote learning. It aids in bridging the educational gap and empowering students in subjects like science and math.


High-speed internet access has been linked to higher levels of civic involvement in rural communities. In addition to playing a role in political engagements like voting, it fuels increased participation in various activities such as sports, volunteerism, and community events.


McGill’s commitment to expanding fiber optics services in rural areas showcases our dedication to shaping communities throughout the Southeast. By revolutionizing internet access through our fiber optic services, we are taking a significant step in bridging the urban-rural digital divide.

The deployment of this fast and reliable infrastructure has the potential to transform businesses, improve healthcare outcomes, advance educational opportunities, and enhance civic engagement. As the demand for high-speed internet continues to grow, it is imperative that we play a central role in providing connectivity for all of our clients, regardless of geographic location.
