“Sterlite’s expansion into South Carolina is a direct response to the need for access to fiber optic 5G networks throughout the United States that was exposed during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Salley. “In September 2020, the South Carolina General Assembly passed the Broadband Accessibility Act with the goal of expanding high speed internet access to hundreds of thousands of people in rural areas. Sterlite’s presence in the state will help to meet this goal.”
