Gigabit Technology to be offered to Downtown Marysville Businesses

September 30, 2016

Home, Kan. - Monday, September 26, 2016 – Blue Valley Tele-Communications (BVTC) announced today the next phase of its Marysville business fiber project will begin soon - giving even more business customers access to gigabit technology over a secure and reliable fiber connection.  

Symmetrical internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second over BVTC’s fiber network will provide business customers instant access to the internet while providing enough bandwidth to handle all wireless needs. “The faster speeds are important in order to keep businesses connected. As companies grow, they need to access more content on more devices,” said John Smith, BVTC operations manager. “Gigabit technology over fiber improves a customer’s experience when they are connecting to the cloud, hosting a videoconference, streaming videos and webinars, and more.”

The first phase of the project, which included businesses along Highway 36 from approximately Hometown Lumber west to the water tower, was completed earlier this year. As with the first phase, all eligible downtown business customers will be contacted by someone from BVTC with additional information on packages and pricing.

Jon Novak, project manager, commented businesses should expect to see crews as early as the first week of October. “We have contracted TJ Cable out of Omaha, Neb. to string the aerial fibers. Plans are for that portion of the project to be completed in about a week.”

The fiber services will include businesses along Highway 36 and Broadway Street. For more information, contact 877-876-1228.
