High speed broadband is in high demand across the nation. Recent investments by local cable and internet provider TDS, now puts Mesquite and St. George with some of the fastest broadband speeds available.
The average household in the U.S. now has more than seven devices connected to the internet at any given time, with six percent of households having more than 15 active devices, according to a report from CED magazine.
TDS Ultra 600 provides customers up to 600 Megabits per second (Mbps) download and up to 20 Mbps upload speed to download movies, television shows, music and video games in seconds compared to minutes. The improved speeds are being delivered via DOCSIS 3.0 technology over HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coax) and RFoG (Radio Frequency over Glass) plants.
“TDS’ fast and superior internet is ideal for households with multiple-connected devices,” said Julie Maiers, vice president of Marketing and Product Development at TDS. “Users can game, stream, and upload concurrently, without slowdown. It provides plenty of bandwidth to meet everyone’s needs.”
Live video is the fastest growing segment of the internet. Thanks to higher-quality video and the growth in live sport broadcasts, bandwidth needs continue to grow.
“Ultra 600 is great for streaming multiple HD movies in a flash,” said Maiers. “With the growth of video conferencing, Skype and Facetime, Ultra 600 will provide improved video quality and will be a real timesaver our customers.”
The new product launch is the result of recent TDS network improvements in St. George and Mesquite, which not only allow for faster speeds, but also improved network performance for all internet customers.
“TDS will continue to make investments in our network to ensure superior and fast internet for our customers today and in the future,” said Maiers.
