We would like to thank Lumos for their investment in fiber-optic Internet for our Harnett County residents, said Desiree Patrick, Harnett County director of community affairs. This announcement is great news for Harnett County.

We look forward to the residents and businesses of the county having faster and more reliable internet.

The arrival of fiber internet in Clayton will open up a world of possibilities for both our citizens and businesses, further establishing the City of Clayton as an attractive place to live and work. Many businesses and individuals require fast and reliable internet access and the availability of this level of internet speed will make Clayton more competitive in terms of economic development and job growth.
