GoNetspeed, a high-speed fiber optic Internet provider, has announced it has completed the buildout of its initial network in West Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport, Connecticut, providing residential customers and small businesses access to Internet speeds up to 1 Gigabit (Gbps) per second (both download and upload), the fastest in the area, the company said.
The company has constructed an initial footprint of more than 50 miles of high-speed fiber optic network in Connecticut with the ability to serve over 12,000 homes–and plans to quickly expand to nearby communities as part of its multi-year, multi-million dollar private investment in Connecticut.
The rate of consumers dropping cable and satellite TV packages has hit the highest level ever, and Internet TV subscribership is on a rapid rise. According to new estimates from research firm eMarketer, US consumers who have canceled traditional pay-TV service and not re-subscribed will jump to more than 32 percent, or 33 million adults, by the end of 2018. This national cord-cutting trend also coincides with the fact that more cord-cutters are turning to Internet streaming services with nearly 148 million people in the US watching Netflix at least once per month.
GoNetspeed is a high-speed fiber-optic Internet provider serving residential and small business customers. The company was founded by Frank Chiaino, who also formed Fibertech Networks, which built more than 14,000 miles of fiber networks across the Northeast – including more than 2,500 route miles in Connecticut. GoNetspeed is now serving 14 communities throughout Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
