Armstrong to upgrade current network to 10G in Ohio
Armstrong users interested in boosting their connection speed may have the opportunity to do so soon.
The company is upgrading its current fiber network to enable 10G technology.
According to Ken Ashley, the vice president of marketing at Armstrong, 10G fiber broadband represents a significant advancement in technology.
Ashley adds that this will enable the company to deliver symmetrical speeds up to 3 gigabits per second with its Zoom Extreme+ service.
Symmetrical speeds mean that they are the same when downloading and uploading.
The company says it is investing millions of dollars throughout the six states it covers, which includes Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Ohio.
"The continuation of our Fiber-To-The-Home project in Ohio is exciting for us," Ashley said. "This substantial investment to the tune of millions of dollars in our Boardman and Medina markets in Ohio and other markets in our 6-state footprint is our commitment to ensure existing customers have the very best broadband service well into the future."
The work will be done throughout the next few months to complete aerial and underground lines.
The company says services will not be interrupted while work is being done.
Once the work is complete, interested customers will need to have a new cable line run to their home.
