  • City's IT Director Courtney Violette

FiberNET is an open access, multi-provider telecommunications network that has been developed by the City of Palm Coast in response to requests from the business community to use City-owned fiber infrastructure to help spur business and jobs growth. Over the next two years, the plan is to get fiber connections to most businesses in the City. FiberNET will be operated as a digital road system, the City will build and maintain the digital road system, but private businesses (providers) will use the digital road to deliver goods and services to customers.

FiberNET is an exciting project for Palm Coast, primarily benefiting select business locations along the Palm Coast Parkway and Town Center. Office Divvy headquarters at the West Pointe Plaza were in the phase-1 of the project, with all infrastructure already underground. We expect to have fully up and running at Office Divvy in early June.
