New all-fiber 10G future-proof network provides high speed Internet

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience solutions, has announced its work to help Talkie Communications build an all-fiber, 10G communications backbone along the Eastern Shore of Maryland to connect underserved communities and drive overall economic development in the region, the company said.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan recently announced the first wave of a 5-year, nearly USD 100 million plan to accelerate this kind of infrastructure investment to connect hundreds of thousands of residents by 2023.

DeMattia and his twin brother Andrew created Talkie Communications in 2012, following more than a decade working for a large US-based telecommunications operator. After Kent County, the next priority for Talkie is to provide services to neighboring counties, reaching into the rural areas east of Baltimore and Annapolis with the same high-quality Internet found in the more urban areas of the state.

Talkie Communications believes in giving the customer the best experience possible for the best price. This includes quality products and great customer service and utilizes the newest technology to give us a competitive advantage with Internet speeds up to 10 gigabits per second. Learn more at
