ATMC recently awarded a $50,000 Connect Grant to cover the cost of construction to extend fiber optic communications services to a new 5,000 square-foot terminal at the Cape Fear Regional Jetport. The airport, located on Long Beach Road near Oak Island and known as the fourth busiest airport in the state, is set to open its new terminal this summer. “We are very excited to partner with the Cape Fear Regional Jetport to bring fiber optic services to their new facility,” said Keith Holden, ATMC CEO. “This new facility is important to Brunswick County for a number of reasons, but chief among them is the positive impact it makes on our area’s economy.” In 2018, ATMC established Connect Grants to aid in costs associated with the delivery and utilization of ATMC broadband services used by local businesses and nonprofits who provide technology and economic initiatives which require connectivity. The grant program is a key element of ATMC’s vision to improve internet access and increase the use of technology in the areas we serve.
