ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thousands of residents in Southwest Georgia will now be able to purchase faster internet speeds.
Mediacom announced the completion of its multi-million dollar one gigabit service at Albany Tech Tuesday afternoon.
More than 50 communities will have access to internet speeds that are 40 times faster then the minimum broadband definition set by the Federal Communications Commission.
City leaders and state legislators got a first look at how new-generation broadband fuels digitally-automated homes and brings future technologies to consumers.
"if we have a customer with 6 people in the household and everyone is on a different device, this is gonna give you the speeds and ability to do multiple streams of a variety of things," said Mediacom Senior Director of Operations Phil Skinner.
Mediacom new gigabit service rates start at $89.99 per month today; and will change to $109.99 the 2nd year.
