WILDLIGHT, FL – October 26, 2017 – Wildlight, the new town under development in Nassau County, is proud to announce AT&T as its first technology provider. One of Wildlight’s key goals is to provide a robust technological infrastructure and culture of connectivity for residents, businesses and the Nassau County community. AT&T will provide an ultra-fast fiber network service throughout the community designed to have the capability to easily migrate to future services.
“AT&T is excited to be the first technology provider for one of Northeast Florida’s largest mixed use developments,” said Joe York, area president, AT&T. “Our fiber network is going to provide Wildlight with the ability to stay connected at top speeds where people live, work, and play. This development includes single family homes, businesses, multifamily units, educational facilities, and retail stores, all of which require different things from their network provider. AT&T is able to provide connectivity for all of these varying needs.”
As a gigabit community, Wildlight wanted to ensure its technology would be up and running for residents and businesses to enjoy from day one. Residents, business owners and those accessing Wildlight’s leading edge network will be able to stream HD movies, play games, download work files or backup data-rich files at ultra-fast speeds.

Wildlight is envisioned as a new town inspired by a character, culture and pattern of living that we call “Florida Lowcountry,” where play is a part of every day and the natural world is a natural part of life. The plan for Wildlight includes a mix of homes, townhomes and rental apartments together with shops and restaurants, parks, gardens and playgrounds, a new elementary school, and a system of trails and pathways intended to make it healthy and walkable and connect it all together. Our Phase 1 plan is flexible and currently designed for about 1,000 homes across about 260 acres plus nearly 350 acres of permanently preserved open space. Wildlight will offer comfortable and friendly Florida Lowcountry living 20 miles north of Jacksonville, just east of Interstate 95 on A1A, with easy access to both Amelia Island and the Jacksonville International Airport. Wildlight is being created by Raydient Places + Properties, a taxable subsidiary of Rayonier, a Real Estate Investment Trust. For more information please visit wildlight.com.
