In the last few years, usage has increased over 400% from our normal customer use. This increase in bandwidth has been used to support such things as Netflix, Facebook, gaming, video streaming, etc. Our goal is to increase and change with our customers
Currently, we are adding new towers to our grid and updating our existing towers to accommodate the higher bandwidth needs that are required by our customers.
We don’t like data caps that charge on average $0.50/GB over a set usage. We also don’t like the idea of throttling to dial-up speeds because you happened to hit your usage cap. Almost all current internet providers have some form of usage cap in place (it’s a good money maker). Rather than leaving you to an unknown charge, we are allowing automatic tier pricing. This means that if you go over the amount of the plan you are on, you will automatically be moved up to the next plan. This gives you a set price for your additional internet usage.
As a local small business we have really tried to be fair in the prices we charge. Now, with the average single Netflix stream needing a minimum of 5Mb to not have constant buffering. We have set our minimum internet speed to 7Mb so you will not have to constantly buffer.
