Fremont, CA: Clearwave Fiber has disclosed plans to expand the company's ultra-fast, state-of-the-art, all-fiber Internet network into residential neighborhoods in Harrisburg and Herrin, IL. The company started serving businesses in Southern Illinois in 1996, and the expansion into residential areas is a part of Clearwave Fiber's long-term goal to bring advanced and fastest internet available in the world to over 500,000 homes and businesses across the US by 2027.

Clearwave Fiber's Midwest President, Byron Cantrall, noted the importance of the company's investment to consumers and the broader local community.
