Vyve Broadband Announces Launch of 500 Megabit-per-second Broadband Service in Shawnee, Oklahoma
‘Vyve 500’ affirms Company’s Commitment to Broadband Adoption in Rural Markets
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 500 Megabit-persecond Internet service to customers in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
The local Vyve team recently completed successful testing of 500 Meg service, and it is now available to local residents and businesses. The boost to 500 Meg service increases our fastest Internet speeds nearly five 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.
“We are excited to add Shawnee, Oklahoma to our growing list of 500 Meg markets,” said Jeffrey DeMond, chief executive officer for Vyve Broadband. ’Vyve 500’ will be a key product for certain business and residential customers who have unique needs, such as people who work from home or those using graphics-heavy gaming and visual design software. These folks will have all the speed and bandwidth they need and more.”
“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 in Oklahoma 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 Shawnee now.
