«I’m excited to partner with Uniti Fiber,» said Streelman. «Their approach to technology and ‘everyone deserves to connect’ philosophy resonates with me. Uniti Fiber provides the technology businesses use every day to change people’s lives, grow the economy and basically do business faster than we ever thought possible.
