LAUNCH OF GIGAONE™ MAKES ODESSA A GIGABIT CITY
April 27, 2016 – Odessa,TX — Odessa residents can now lay claim to the title "Gigabit city" with the recent launch of GigaONE, Cable ONE's new Gigabit service.
"We are thrilled that Odessa is a Gigabit City," said Scott Jones, City of Odessa Director of Economic Development. "Gigabit Internet service will not only provide our residents with the faster speeds they need as families continue to connect multiple devices in their homes, but it is critical to the economic growth and development of our city."
Mike George, President of the Odessa Chamber of Commerce said, "High-speed Internet connections improve access to economic development, education, health care and employment opportunities. Cable ONE's launch of Gigabit service in our community is great news for the residents of Odessa because of the increased opportunities and advantages it will provide to improve Odessa's quality of life."
The company's newest speed is 40 times faster than the average speed currently offered across the United States, and will be available to the majority of Cable ONE customers by the end of 2016.
"GigaONE will support the technology needs of the communities we serve, now and in the future," said Joe Felbab, Vice President of Marketing for Cable ONE. "We are excited to be able to offer Gigabit service to nearly 1.5 million homes in the markets we serve."
Cable ONE has invested more than a half billion dollars over the past five years on network upgrades and enhancements in order to bring the latest technology and fastest speeds to its customers.
"Unlike many of our competitors, Gigabit service will be available to all of our customers – not just a select few in certain areas. We've been committed for decades to serving smaller cities and towns, and we are delighted to provide them with the latest technology to make them Gigabit cities in 2016," Felbab said.
Cable ONE Gigabit speeds will enable customers to:
- Download an HD movie in 60 seconds or less
- Download 100 songs in four seconds
- Download a game in 29 seconds
"Our extensive fiber network deployment and continued investment in improving and expanding our network enables us to offer the fastest, most reliable Internet connections at the best value, while contributing to the economic development of the communities we serve," Felbab said.
