RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - June 19, 2014) - Vyve Broadband announced today that it is increasing Internet speeds to best-in-market levels throughout its nine state footprint. The services will be built around the company's new 25, 50 and 105 Mbps core service offering. Vyve is in the process of moving all of its standard Internet customers to 25Mbps (in most cases from 10Mbps) and will offer 105 Mbps service as part of its offering. Current customers will receive this speed upgrade for free.
The increases are an important milestone in Vyve's plan to provide cutting edge broadband speeds in rural markets that typically lag behind in technology offerings. These increases will more than double the average speed of existing customers and provide a quantum improvement to the availability of broadband in these markets, especially with higher speed tiers.
"Vyve is laser-focused on creating unrivaled broadband experiences in markets that are largely ignored by our competitors," said Jeffrey DeMond, chief executive officer for Vyve Broadband. "With a Vyve Broadband connection, our customers will have access to lightning fast broadband services. We are thrilled to be raising speeds for our existing customers for free. Offering faster speeds for free to our existing customers reflects Vyve's commitment to being the leading technology provider in our markets."
Speed increases have begun in Vyve markets such as Shawnee (OK), New Boston (TX), Ottawa (KS), Fort Riley (KS), Waycross (GA), Douglas (GA) and West Lake (LA). Vyve expects that speed increases for many of the company's markets in OK, TX, AR, KS, LA, TN, GA, CO and WY will be completed by end of 2014.
Increased Internet speeds will allow customers to have much better online experience, such as enjoying the Watch TV EverywhereTM application that gives video customers the ability to watch their favorite shows from participating channels anytime, anywhere and on any device -- and the new Vyve HD Guide, powered by TiVo®, which helps users find the exact programming they want, quickly and easily.
