Cambridge to become Gigabit Community

boring for fiberCambridge, IL – Cambridge Telcom today announced that symmetrical broadband speeds up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) will soon be available to residential and small business customers in select locations in Cambridge through its ultra-fast fiber optic network.

Cambridge Telcom is using fiber-to-the-premises technology to provide access to some of the fastest upload and download Internet speeds currently available. These speeds will allow users to stream high-definition video content with little to no delays and download movies, songs and TV shows in seconds. Customers who have multiple devices connected to one Internet connection in the home will have more than enough capacity and speed to support other uses of broadband such as online gaming, home automation, and increasingly important cloud services. Fiber speeds will help small businesses increase productivity and efficiency while working in the cloud, sharing multimedia files, streaming video content and backing-up data in real-time. In addition, Cambridge Telcom’s 1 Gbps service offers symmetrical speeds allowing customers to upload information as fast as they download it.

“Cambridge Telcom is excited to announce its plans to bring a 1 gig fiber network to Cambridge,” said Matt Storm, Cambridge Telcom General Manger. “We continue to innovate and invest as a company to offer services that help make our communities a better place to live and work. In an age where technology is a big part of our daily lives, it’s exciting to know our customers will have the fastest Internet speeds in the country,” said Storm. “We hope this investment by Cambridge Telcom helps connect families and businesses, and creates new innovation in our community.”

Residential customers can purchase fiber service for a monthly recurring charge discounted with a 2-yr term commitment. Affected customers will receive information requesting they contact Cambridge Telcom for speed and pricing packages.
