ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, UNITED STATES, November 1, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Quintillion announced today it has completed the marine survey, a key step in accelerating the Nome to Homer Express Project—which will bring broadband service to Emmonak and complete the fiber ring around Alaska.
“Quintillion is proud to have completed the self-funded multimillion-dollar marine survey to expedite the buildout of this critical project,” said President Michael “Mac” McHale. “This underscores our ongoing commitment to bring affordable and reliable internet service to Alaska’s rural communities.”
