Vyve Broadband Announces Launch of 200 Megabit-per-second Broadband Service in Douglas
‘Vyve 200’ Affirms Company’s Commitment to Broadband Adoption in Rural Markets, Increases Business Speeds to 250 Meg
Vyve Broadband’s mission is to provide rural communities with world-class broadband Internet service that levels the playing field. Today, Vyve has taken the next step in that mission with the launch of 200 Megabit-per-second Internet service to residential customers in the Douglas market.
The local Vyve team recently completed successful testing of 200 Meg service, and it is now available to local residents in Douglas, which increases their fastest Internet speeds by nearly two times. Residents with multiple connected devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers, TVs and gaming systems will be able to run their devices concurrently without interruption.
Local businesses will also experience a significant boost in their Internet capabilities, with the addition of a blazing fast 250 Meg Internet service. By offering the fastest internet speed in the area, Vyve serves as a partner to businesses advancing the Douglas economy.
“We are excited to add Douglas to our growing list of 200 Meg markets,” said Jeffrey DeMond, chief executive officer for Vyve Broadband. “‘Vyve 200’ will be a key product for certain residential customers who have unique needs, such as people who work from home or those using graphics-heavy gaming and visual design software. Now they will have the bandwidth they need to be connected.”
“It’s clear that the online technology, information and entertainment landscape is evolving on an almost daily basis. What’s incredibly fast today will be the norm tomorrow,” DeMond says. “Vyve is building the network now that our customers will want and demand in the future. We’re committed to long-term relationships with our customers, and part of that commitment is looking not only at their current needs, but what their needs will be several years down the road.”
This upgraded service represents another milestone in the ongoing drive by Vyve to provide cutting-edge broadband speeds in rural markets that have traditionally lagged behind in technology offerings. Vyve investments since the company launched in late 2013 have more than doubled the average speed for existing customers. Vyve is already offering ‘Vyve Gig’ (1,000 Megabits) in select markets and is currently testing in many more.
Residential customers who are interested in ‘Vyve 200’ service, or businesses interested in upgrading to 250 Meg service can call 1-855-FOR-VYVE.
