Internet bandwidth is exploding again. Most experts predict that Internet bandwidth will grow 500% in just the next few years. Why? Look around any home, apartment, or dorm room today, and you’ll find the answer. iPhones, iPads, PCs, Xboxes, smart TVs and other devices that connect to the Internet are being used to download and stream TV shows, movies, and other videos.
Companies like Apple, Netflix, Hulu, Google, YouTube, and Microsoft are all creating wonderful ways for everyone to watch what they want, where they want, on almost any device imaginable. This generational change means that people will need far more bandwidth than today’s networks offer. The metal phone and cable wires connecting homes, apartments, and buildings are simply not as capable of sending and receiving information as fiber-optic cables.
While access to fiber is available in some of America’s largest cities, small and mid-sized cities have been overlooked up to this point. Greenlight Networks is based in Rochester, NY, one of the 10 high-tech areas of the United States, and it has been a hotbed of telecommunications competition and innovation since the mid-90s. Because we live here, we think it’s time for the people of these communities to experience a better Internet experience over an all fiber network.
Greenlight Networks has been providing internet speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second since it launched service in 2011 and announced a 2 Gigabits per second product this year. Using a fiber optic network, Greenlight is able to provide its customers with internet speeds that are 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today! A recent study found that homes in neighborhoods with a fiber connection can see an increase in value up to 3.1% or $5,437. Studies have also shown that home buyers are choosing where to live based on access to high speed internet service. A fiber connection from Greenlight will make your home and community stand out to potential buyers should you decide to sell your home in the future.
