Internet provider GoNetspeed has added fiber internet options to parts of Bloomfield and Windsor, company officials said, and more communities will be added this summer.
GoNetspeed announced that it’s made progress on its plan to offer its gigabit fiber optic internet to tens of thousands of homes and locations in Hartford County as it expands its footprint in the state.
Construction is done in both Bloomfield and Windsor, adding more than 8,900 possible homes to the company’s fiber network. Construction is currently underway in Enfield and Windsor Locks, company officials said. When those projects are completed over the next several months, another 11,000 homes will have the option of signing up for the fiber service.
GoNetspeed is a fiber-to-the-premises operator, meaning it connects fiber internet directly to a customer’s property. Fiber internet is a type of broadband connection that can reach equally fast download and upload speeds using a fiber-optic cable.
In addition to Connecticut, GoNetspeed currently operates in Alabama, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont and West Virginia.
