As Internet Service Providers across the U.S. scramble to meet the recently revised Federal Communications Commission definition of broadband Internet service (25 Mbps down/3Mbps up), Cable ONE Vice President Aldo Casartelli is pleased that the company's groundbreaking decision to launch 50Mbps service in 2011 has paid off.
"We were the first in the majority of our markets to offer 50Mbps speeds. Now, more than 78 percent of our customers currently subscribe to our 50Mbps service." Casartelli said. "With the launch of our even faster 60 and 70Mbps speeds in 2013, we've seen a substantial increase in the number of customers choosing Cable ONE for their surfing, streaming and gaming needs. Customers are online now more than ever, and want a company that will provide them not only with speed, but reliability."
The Wall Street Journal recently reported Cable ONE as fourth in the nation among ISPs providing the best value for speed and PC Magazine has ranked Cable ONE as one of the top 10 fastest ISPs in the U.S. for the past four years in a row.
While Cable ONE competitors AT&T and CenturyLink work to bring their speeds up to FCC requirements in most markets, Cable ONE says its customers can look forward to an exciting announcement early this spring regarding new, faster Internet speeds.
"Our plan is to continue to be the leading Internet Service Provider in our markets by offering customers the fastest internet speeds at a great value," Casartelli said. "Being responsive to our customers and continuing to increase our upload and download speeds to meet their needs is just one way we're going to accomplish that goal."
