PANGAEA Internet Expands Staff to Meet Growing Internet Demands

TRYON, NC / March 26, 2018 – In order to meet the growing demand for PANGAEA Internet’s “Speed of Light” internet service, the company has added James Green to its staff as Network Technician. James is a U.S. Army veteran and brings broad knowledge of network switches and routers as well as CAT 5/6 and fiber optic cabling. James was most recently a Network Technician for Charter Communications and previously worked for Asymmetric Warfare Group and General Dynamics. James lives in Landrum, SC and has an AAS degree in Computer Information Technologies and holds certificates in Cisco routing and switching.
