The Fort Valley Utility Commission offers broadband fiber access.  The 52 mile fiber optic network offers various additional services from a high speed internet connection, dark fiber, up to a custom built point-to-point service to meet our customers need for speed.  We cover the entire Fort Valley area, South Peach County Industrial Park, all of Housers Mill Road and Walker Road from Highway 96 to Byron, and Highway 96 from Fort Valley to I-75.

In 2010, the Peach County Public Schools in Peach County were connected via fiber. The Utility Commission is a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) licensed by the Georgia Public Service Commission and is an Internet Service Provider (ISP).  Our fiber ring is connected to the 3,000 mile state-wide Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG) fiber backbone that is operated and maintained by Georgia Public Web, Inc. (GPW).  GPW provides telecommunication services to rural Georgia as a CLEC provider.  GPW is a non-profit provider of internet, private line and web solutions.  Utilizing its statewide fiber optic network, GPW is able to offer cost effective, state of the art products and services to its customers through its own Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) network that is multi-homed to several Tier 1 ISPs with high capacity, scalable connections supported by its own 24/7 Network Operations Center.  GPW is owned by 32 Georgia municipalities, one of which is Fort Valley.
