WALHALLA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Residents of Oconee County now have multiple options when choosing an internet service provider with the county's fiber optic network.

Six providers are now authorized on the fiber optic network, dubbed FOCUS (Fiber Optics Creating Unified Solutions).

The project, which is aimed to provide the county with high-speed internet, was created as a public-private partnership between the county, local small businesses and the East Band of the Cherokee Indians.

"The project aims to improve the Oconee region's attractiveness to employers, promote public safety and health and enhance educational opportunities by enabling distance learning, video conferencing and remote research," it states on the project's website.
