Hargray Expands to Warner Robins, Georgia
WARNER ROBINS, GA – May 11, 2018 – Hargray Communications Group, Inc. (“Hargray”), a leader in fiber communication services in Georgia and South Carolina, announced today that it is expanding into Warner Robins, Georgia. This announcement comes one year after Hargray launched its world-class fiber-optic network in Macon, Georgia.
Chris McCorkendale, Hargray Fiber’s Senior Vice President, said, “We are thrilled to continue our expansion in middle Georgia, an area that shares Hargray’s goal of fueling community growth through state-of-the art technology and fast and reliable broadband services. Hargray’s 100% fiber-optic network enables the fastest broadband speeds available, and those capabilities are an indispensable ingredient to economic development in today’s world. In addition, Hargray’s local focus, including its dedicated local team, fits well with the community-focused mindset of the businesses and government leaders that have supported our expansion into Warner Robins. Without their support, our significant investment in the community would not be possible. We look forward to becoming a major contributor to the Warner Robins community and sharing the benefits of future growth in the area.”
Hargray was founded almost 70 years ago in Beaufort County, South Carolina. In addition to Macon, in recent years Hargray has expanded into Savannah, Hinesville, Statesboro, and Valdosta, Georgia.

Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms said, “We are excited to have Hargray in Warner Robins. We are very focused on our rapidly growing economy and recognize that we must have the proper communications infrastructure in order to be successful. It is no different than power and water: our community needs fast and reliable Internet in today’s marketplace. With Hargray, things will be better.”
