"Hargray's approach is to fully engage in the communities it serves, and we look forward to the opportunity to join, serve, and engage local residents and businesses of this beautiful region,” said Hargray vice president of sales and operations Gwynne Lastinger in a press release. “We will deliver the same high-quality suite of residential and commercial services that we are known for in South Carolina and Georgia with personalized, local customer care."
