Mediacom extends fiber network to Huntland, Tennessee
450 area homes & businesses now have access to Gigabit broadband services
HUNTLAND, TN – April 14, 2022 – Mediacom Communications announced the completion of a 25-mile fiber optic network expansion that provides residents and businesses in Huntland, Tennessee with substantially faster internet service.
The new broadband network reaches 450 homes and businesses within the southern Franklin County community and offers download speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second with Mediacom’s Xtream 1 Gig internet product offering -- a service level that is 10 to 40 times faster than the current internet offerings available in the area today.
To extend its network to Huntland, Mediacom combined more than $575,000 of its own private capital with a $125,000 grant from Franklin County. The initiative is the latest example of the public-private partnership model Mediacom is employing to expand broadband to underserved markets and close digital gaps.
“Mediacom’s broadband network is built with innovative, scalable technology. This ensures that we meet customer needs today, while also being ready for future advancements, including multi-gig, symmetrical speeds that will be delivered on the 10G platform we plan to deploy over the coming years,” said Mediacom Area Operations Director Lee Beck.
Beck explained that Mediacom was the first major U.S. Internet Service Provider to launch Gigabit speed broadband across its entire national footprint. In adjacent Madison County, Alabama, Beck said the company currently has more than 3600 customers in areas outside of Huntsville connected to Mediacom Xtream 1 Gig internet service. Customers in all service areas can choose from a range of speed tiers from 100 Mbps to 1 Gig.
“With this investment, Huntland residents can also enjoy super-fast internet and connect dozens of devices for everything from home security to smart-home appliances,” Beck said. “Gig Internet provides a large amount of bandwidth to a home network – allowing multiple users to surf, stream, download and game at the same time.”
