“The importance of high-speed, reliable Internet access has never been more evident than it is right now,” commented GoNetspeed CEO Richard Clark. “With its symmetrical upload and download speeds, fiber is uniquely positioned to facilitate things like remote work, distance learning, and telemedicine.”

GoNetspeed is currently investing in high-speed fiber Internet infrastructure in Fairfield, Hartford, and New Haven Counties and continues to evaluate new areas in which to expand. Residents of these areas should visit www.gonetspeed.com to complete the form even if they’re not currently eligible for service since the company may use the data to help determine future build areas.

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.
