TruVista Expanding Fiber Optic Service to Residents of Commerce

Monday, October 18th, 2021

 TruVista is pleased to announce it will be bringing broadband, video, voice, security, and home automation services to residents of Commerce, Georgia using Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) infrastructure. 

To be completed on an aggressive timeline, TruVista’s buildout project will deliver gigabit high-speed broadband access to approximately 3,000 residential and business premises in the city.

In addition, TruVista will be opening an office at 15 Bolton Drive before year-end to provide a convenient location for customers, as well as to have a local presence in the city.

Commerce residents interested in TruVista services can go to and provide contact information to be included in communications regarding the build out progress, and be among the first to be notified when services are activated in their area.

The state-of-the-art fiber optic network TruVista will build in Commerce offers internet speeds up to 1Gbps to all newly served customer households, enabling consumers to engage in e-learning, remote work, telemedicine, and other applications that require a fast, reliable, always-on broadband service. These new customer households will also have access to TruVista’s industry leading streaming TV service Vista Video, as well as Unlimited Voice service and home security and automation options with Vista SmartHome.

TruVista will apply its customer-friendly approach in newly served areas, including no data caps combined with high-quality service provided by local employees. The new initiative is in addition to TruVista's ongoing network expansion plans, including Rural Development Opportunity Fund (RDOF) broadband projects in Franklin, Rabun, Stephens, and Jackson counties.

"As the number of connected devices in the average household continues to grow rapidly, so does the need for a fast, reliable, and always-on internet connection,” said Carla French, President, and Chief Operating Officer for TruVista Communications. “TruVista is committed to bringing this highest quality level service, delivered via fiber optic infrastructure, to the residents of Commerce.”

“Consumers are seeking services that not only provide a conduit for information and entertainment, but also make their lives more convenient and secure.  TruVista strives to bring our customers best-in-class product options that don’t just meet their needs but exceed their expectations.”

Georgia Congressman Andrew Clyde of District 9 said, “I am delighted by the news that TruVista plans to develop a fiber optic network for the residents of Commerce, which will deliver much-needed reliable high-speed internet to families, workers, students, and small businesses.

“Ensuring our rural regions have stable broadband is vital to advancing unserved and underserved areas, sparking innovation for generations to come. I am thankful for TruVista’s dedication to expand and provide access to high-caliber internet services, and I look forward to the progress their project will bring to the City of Commerce.”

Preparation for TruVista's buildout in Commerce has already begun and the company is working closely with both the City and the State to ensure that permitting needs are completed in an efficient manner. 

 “I’m very pleased that TruVista is bringing fiber optic based broadband services to the residents of the City of Commerce and that they are further showing their commitment to the area with the planned opening of an office at 15 Bolton Drive,” said Georgia State Representative Tommy Benton of District 31. “We have worked closely with TruVista and the City to ensure that this project moves forward as quickly and efficiently as possible, so residents can take advantage of these increasingly important services.”
