Georgia municipal electric utility Dalton Utilities/OptiLink is offering community-wide access to GigLinkâ¢, a residential Gigabit Internet service, the company said.
The announcement follows the September 2018 launch of VidLinkÂ®, a first-of-its-kind streaming entertainment platform that enables new features like streaming and multi-device access.
The new service affords downloads up to 40 times faster than the FCC standard. What this means for users is that in the time it currently takes to download a color photo, they can now download an HD movie.
Dalton Utilities, in operation as a public utility since 1889, provides potable water, electrical, natural gas, and wastewater treatment services to the City of Dalton and portions of Whitfield, Murray, Gordon, Catoosa, and Floyd counties. Beginning in 1999, Dalton Utilities branched into telecommunications with broadband services to large industrial/commercial customers. With the 2003 launch of its OptiLink family of services, the company now provides broadband, cable TV, telephone, and Internet services to area residents and businesses. Dalton Utilities serves 50,000 customers and employs over 300 area residents.
