Who We Are

Launch Fiber is a coalition initiative started by Tyler England, an Electrical Engineering student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Tyler started the petition for gigabit fiber in February of 2014 to raise awareness of the severe lack of a high-tech internet infrastructure in Huntsville and Madison County.

Rod Montgomery is an internet technologist that has designed, implemented, or managed networks for DealNews.com, NASA, service provider API Digital, the City of Huntsville, the Smithsonian Institution, and others. He joined Launch Fiber to advocate for an open fiber network on which many service providers compete.

Launch Fiber now consists of a list of diverse and powerful partners, all who have one clear goal: To bring gigabit fiber internet infrastructure to our community.

Please consider joining us and helping bring fiber to our community.
