Boston-based Starry Internet, a new internet service provider deploying fixed wireless broadband, announced that it has expanded to Arlington, Virginia, with a new office space. The company’s 8,300-square-foot Virginia office is owned by Rooney Properties, and is located in the Clarendon neighborhood.

Starry launched in 2016 and first expanded to the area when it started servicing D.C. neighborhoods Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Mount Vernon Triangle, NoMa and Penn Quarter last year. In Virginia, the company currently services the Courthouse, Rosslyn, Clarendon and Ballston areas.

“Starry is at a pivotal moment of growth and expansion in the DC-metro area. Putting down roots in Arlington means we’re better able to support our rapid growth and meet the voracious local demand for competitive, high-quality internet service,” Starry COO Alex Moulle-Berteaux said in a press release. “People crave choice and affordability. They also want to be treated well. Starry delivers on all three.”

Starry reported in a press release that the new office will accommodate its growing team of employees, including marketing, sales, customer care, construction, engineering and deployment staff. Nationally, the company said it has 600 employees across five offices.

Starry offers an internet-only product costing $50 a month with a 200Mbps download speed. The company also offers 24/7 customer service and installation assistance.

“From our building partners to our subscribers, we’re laser-focused on being customer-first, always,” said Starry General Manager for Washington, DC Tim Dunne said in a statement. “We’re consumers too, and that’s why we treat every customer the way we would want to be treated. That mindset — as simple as it may sound — is what distinguishes us from the incumbent providers and has propelled our rapid growth in the region.”
