For years, the fastest internet speed available in the region was 1 gigabit. But as we all embark on a new year, we’re also taking the leap to a new age of broadband internet.
United and Turtle Mountain Communications is thrilled to officially offer our new gig suite, a fresh slate of internet speeds that includes your choice of 2.5, 5, or 10 gig!
Why do these faster speeds matter, and how do you know what speed to choose from our gig suite? We’ll cover all that information in this blog, so keep reading!
A “Gig” Deal
Faster gig speeds have been developing for years, and recently became available due to advancements in fiber optic technology. Instead of traditional copper wire, fiber cables transmit data with light pulses through glass fibers the size of a human hair. This makes it a faster, more reliable, and more sustainable option for the present and future of internet.
About Our Gig Suite
In addition to the 1 gig option you know and love, this expanded suite offers unparalleled connections that are hardwired through our fiber optic network to deliver upload and download speeds up to 10 times faster than ever before. Now that is fast!
The right speed for you will depend on your needs. If you’re a homeowner with a big family and a lot of devices connected to Wi-Fi, the 1 or 2.5 gig option is perfect. These speeds are also great for smaller businesses with limited technology that relies on the internet.
For larger businesses with a lot of technology that requires the internet to function, 5 or 10 gig is your speed. While all of our gig speeds are available to homeowners who want them, these faster speeds are intended to accommodate environments (typically businesses) with a large quantity of devices that need a strong, reliable internet connection.
Take the Leap Today
We all are becoming more reliant on the internet to work, shop, play, and learn. But we also need it to handle our refrigerators, thermostats, and other smart devices. The more devices that are connected to your Wi-Fi, the more data you need to maintain fast uninterrupted connections. Our gig suite gives you additional options that meet the specific needs of your home or business.
But it gets even better; when you sign up for 2.5, 5, or 10 gig, you automatically receive our Managed Wireless service and a mesh extender to maximize your speed! Contact our team to upgrade your plan and experience the fastest internet available today.
