June 25, 2024, Maricopa, AZ: Orbitel Communications is excited to launch Flight Fiber, 100% fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology. This marks a significant milestone in Orbitel’s ongoing commitment to delivering cutting-edge technologies to the communities it serves. Amarillo Creek, near the City of Maricopa, AZ, is Orbitel’s first community to be 100% Flight Fiber.

Amarillo Creek, a burgeoning development just outside the City of Maricopa, is projected to house over 1,500 homes constructed by various builders, including Ashton Woods and Starlight Homes. This growth demonstrates Orbitel’s steadfast dedication to be future focused.

Orbitel has been diligently expanding Flight Fiber throughout the city of Maricopa, integrating Flight Fiber into new construction areas. Currently, you can experience the power of Flight Fiber in the newly built homes of Amarillo Creek, Province, The Lakes, Sorrento, Rancho Mirage, Trails of Maricopa, Copa Flats and El Ranch Santa Rosa. Today Flight Fiber powers nearly 3,000 homes within the City of Maricopa and growing every day.

Orbitel has invested more than $6M to date to provide Flight Fiber multi-gig 100% fiber services to parts of the City of Maricopa. Orbitel’s investments in Maricopa and surrounding areas will provide more choices for the local community and bring the latest fiber technologies to area residents and businesses. These local investments will create jobs, enhance infrastructure, and support the area’s continued growth.

John Schurz, President/General Manager of Orbitel Communications, is looking forward to deploying Flight Fiber in Maricopa. “We are looking to the future and excited to bring Flight Fiber to the area. This product will provide an affordable, secure broadband solution that will fit the needs of this community for years to come.”
