Located in North Bryan County, Georgia, PAC Fiber has served the region for nearly 120 years. Begun shortly after the incorporation of Pembroke, Georgia in 1905, PAC passed through several private owners until 1946 when it was purchased by Paul and Ivey Beardslee. Just having returned home following World War II, the Beardslees saw the potential in the hometown company being run from the second floor of a small downtown building.
Since then, the Beardslee family continues to oversee the growth from a 212 line phone company with a manual switchboard to a full-service communications provider with a fiber optic network reaching 100 percent of its service area and beyond. Now marketed as PAC Fiber, or PAC, it provides high-speed broadband Internet access, digital HD television, cellular and landline telephone services and supplies communications and digital transport services for area businesses.
Jeanne Beardslee McCormick and Mary Anna Beardslee Hite continue guiding PAC into the future. As the only locally-owned and operated advanced communications company in the area, PAC proudly supports its local community by advocating employee volunteerism and providing financial support to many local causes. PAC employs about 40 people, with nearly all of them living in the North Bryan County area.
