Fiber Unleashed: Say goodbye to loading times and hello to free time!

by Paula Novodvorschi | Jan 31, 2019

“I love waiting for the Internet to load.” - Said no one ever.

We've all been there… You're ready to watch the movie you spent half an hour selecting only to have it pause every few seconds to load. Or… you text your spouse a picture of what you need from the store, but the image won't load even though you're connected to WiFi. The stories are countless, but one thing they all have in common is their ability to frustrate you – leaving you dead in the water with accomplishing what's at hand. Luckily, Fiber Internet makes loading times a thing of the past.

Fiber Speeds

With speeds anywhere from 4 to 20 times faster than the fastest cable connection, GVTC's robust Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) is the solution to all your loading problems. Always the most reliable connection, FTTH offers greater bandwidth, faster speeds, durability, and more!

Want even better news? As of January 1, 2019, GVTC unleashed its Fiber Internet, boosting its already blazing fast starting speeds from 100 Mbps to speeds now up to 250 Mbps for both upload and download speeds, with options to upgrade up to 500 Mbps and 1 Gbps. What was already delivering blazing fast starting speeds now has no competition. And if those number aren't convincing you, let's talk about what they actually do for you in your home.

To put things into perspective, let's compare the speeds between Fiber Internet and regular cable connection. An Internet speed of 50 Mbps is usually considered a fast connection for regular cable but takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to download movies or shows. With Fiber, a 1 Gbps speed could cut down an HD movie download from 22 minutes to about eight seconds according to a Northwest Tech Blog! I don't know about you, but saving 22 minutes from loading time sounds like a no-brainer. After all, time is money.

If you're still not sold on making the switch, check out this list to your left of 5 things you could do with the time you save by moving to GVTC's Fiber Internet!

The choice is yours!
