April 13, 2022 (WEST HAVEN, CT) – GoNetspeed announced today that it has made significant progress on its phased project to deliver Gigabit Fiber Internet via a fiber-to-the-premises network to a total of 16,569 locations in Hartford County. The final phase of the project should be complete later this summer, with progress moving quickly in the following areas:
- Construction is complete in Bloomfield, and over 4,500 homes in the Bloomfield area can sign up for service today.
- Construction is complete in Windsor, and over 4,432 homes in the Windsor area can sign up for service today.
- Construction has begun in Enfield; service will be available later this summer to over 7,000 homes and businesses.
- Construction has begun in Windsor Locks; service will be available later this spring to 4,864 homes and businesses.
Interested residents can visit www.gonetspeed.com/HartfordCounty to see if service is available at their location and to sign up for priority installation when service is available.
“What many people don’t appreciate until they have access to gigabit fiber is that it provides symmetrical speeds, meaning faster upload and download speeds. This is a huge benefit to households that work from home, school from home, watch multiple TVs, view doorbell and security cameras, and demand unparalleled performance for all their internet-related activities,” commented GoNetspeed CEO Richard Clark. “Most importantly, we provide this reliable service with our industry best customer service. We are very excited to bring these speeds to families in Connecticut that didn’t previously have access to them.”
GoNetspeed’s fiber construction in Enfield, Windsor, and Windsor Locks will continue in phases until it is complete later this summer. As each area is complete, GoNetspeed will contact interested residents to begin scheduling installations. Clark also encouraged residents to visit www.gonetspeed.com/HartfordCounty to learn more about GoNetspeed’s service offerings, check availability for their location, or receive construction updates for their neighborhood. Residents should complete the submission form even if they are not in a currently eligible location; GoNetspeed may consider expanding the build at a future date to areas that express overwhelming interest.
What is Fiber Internet?
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 the fastest residential Internet speeds available, ranging from 150 Mbps to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps). For businesses, GoNetspeed can customize speeds beyond Gigabit capability if necessary.
GoNetspeed, a fiber-to-the-premises operator serving residential and business customers in Connecticut, Alabama, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and West Virginia, announced in January 2021 that it has formed a new partnership with Oak Hill Capital (“Oak Hill”) which will allow GoNetspeed to accelerate the expansion of its fiber network throughout the Northeastern U.S.
Adding thousands of new locations every year, GoNetspeed is one of the largest independent Internet providers in the east. For more information on the company, or to inquire about service in your residence or community, please visit https://www.gonetspeed.com/.
