Fiber Internet offers symmetrical speeds, meaning that both download and upload are equally fast. The connectivity challenges that people experience with using video conferencing associated with telecommuting, on-line learning and telemedicine have emphasized the importance of fast upload speeds. GoNetspeed offers residential speeds ranging from 150 Mbps to 1 Gbps. For businesses, GoNetspeed can customize speeds beyond Gigabit capability if necessary.
“We’re working quickly to build out the next generation of fiber communications in Connecticut and are proud to be filling this need,” said Tom Perrone, Chief Operating Officer for GoNetspeed. “I’m excited to introduce new subscribers in these communities to the unparalleled customer service and unmatched speed and performance GoNetspeed prides itself on.”
In addition to the areas in which fiber infrastructure is currently being constructed, GoNetspeed continues to evaluate new areas in which to expand. Perrone said that visitors to the site who don’t see their area on the map should tell their friends, family, and neighbors to submit their interest at www.gonetspeed.com. According to Perrone, GoNetspeed uses those submissions to help decide where to expand next.
