TWIN FALLS | Cable ONE and the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce announced Nov. 17 that Twin Falls will be able to lay claim to the title “Gig city” with the 2016 launch of GigaONE, the company’s new Gigabit service.
“We are excited for the Cable ONE launch of GigaONE and this investment in Twin Falls,” said Shawn Barigar, president & CEO of the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, in a statement. “High-speed Internet connections improve access to information from around the world and open up a host of new possibilities for our community, including contributing to our continued growth and economic development.”
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, in a press release. “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.
Felbab says that Cable ONE currently offers customized, dedicated Gigabit fiber optic services to businesses, and the company will begin launching residential Gigabit service over its existing hybrid fiber-coax network in the first quarter of 2016 in the following cities: Altus, Okla.; Duncan, Okla.; Borger, Texas; Emporia, Kan.; Bisbee, Ariz.; Cottonwood, Ariz.; and McCall.
