Home Telecom launches Gigabit Internet speed to Daniel Island residents and businesses
Lightning fast Internet, streaming video, online gaming with no lag, uploads to the cloud for backup and transferring large files instantly are among the benefits of Velocity Gigabit, according to William S. Helmly, President and COO of Home Telecom, “Access to gigabit Internet speed improves quality of life for Daniel Island residents by allowing them to have a virtual business or to work at home in one of the most beautiful communities in the Charleston region.”
Since 2004, Home Telecom has been investing in future-proof fiber infrastructure. Today while only 1 in 5 households in the United States is serviced by fiber, Home Telecom currently serves 50% of their 22,000 customers and 100% of Daniel Island homes and business with fiber. With fiber going all the way to every home and business on Daniel Island, Home Telecom is able to provide services as robust and dependable as those available anywhere in the world, the company boasted in a recent press release. Beyond the benefit of super fast Internet, the fiber infrastructure is more reliable than other technologies for delivering telecommunications, allows symmetrical (equal upload and download) speeds, and keeps Daniel Island looking beautiful by not needing large pedestals throughout every neighborhood.
“Our corporate vision is to be the best and the ‘easy to do business with’ company to globally connect the communities we serve,” says Helmly. “We strive to live our vision by continuing to be the first to introduce the latest and greatest products, such as gigabit Internet, coupled with local customer service. We feel living our vision is how we maintain a 91% customer satisfaction rating with our customers.”
