Welcoming Connect's First Customers
Last month, Conexon began connecting its initial customers in Monroe County. The feedback provided by these customers will play a crucial role in refining services and processes to ensure a smooth and successful launch of the fiber broadband network to others.
Fiber Is More Than Fast Internet… A Lot More!
While other providers tout their fast speeds of 50–100 Mbps, Connect’s 100 percent fiber network will offer upload and download speeds that are 20 to 40 times faster—up to 2 Gigabits (2,000 Mbps). Fiber broadband from Connect, powered by Central Georgia EMC, also includes powerful parental controls, robust home network security, and more.
