What is Fiber Internet?
Internet fiber offers symmetrical speeds, which means downloading and downloading are equally fast. Connectivity challenges faced by users when using video conferencing associated with telecommuting, e-learning and telemedicine have highlighted the importance of fast download speeds. GoNetspeed offers the fastest residential Internet speeds available, ranging from 150 Mbps to 1 Gbps (1000 Mbps). For businesses, GoNetspeed can customize speeds beyond Gigabit capacity if needed.
GoNetspeed, a fiber-to-the-premises carrier serving residential and business customers in Maine, Alabama, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont and West Virginia, announced in January 2021 that it had formed a new partnership with Oak Hill Capital (“Oak Hill”) that will allow GoNetspeed to accelerate the expansion of its fiber optic network throughout the Northeastern United States
Adding thousands of new sites each year, GoNetspeed is one of the largest independent Internet providers in the East. For more company information or to inquire about service in your home or community, please visit gonetspeed.com.
