One gigabit per second (Gbps) is 1,000 megabits per second (Mbps). Traditional high-speed data plans are 25-150mbps so you can imagine how fast GIG is comparably. Gigabit speed Internet provides enough bandwidth for all your connected devices. Everyone in your household can connect and have a blazing fast connection at the same time.
Yes. Gigabit is up to 10 times faster than a 100Mbps Internet connection. One gigabit takes full advantage of our 100% all-fiber network and opens up a larger data pipe to your home.
Years ago, we invested in a 100% fiber optic network. This made our community one of the rare exceptions in our nation, because rural communities' access to high speed connectivity is typically a step behind more urban environments. The all fiber network has opened doors for our customers in our service area by providing features like gigabit Internet and Lightwave TV. Gig speeds are the future of Internet connectivity and as Internet-connected devices continue to change how we live, EATEL GIG will be there to connect you.
No. WiFi is typically slower than Ethernet wired connections. Many new laptops and computers have gigabit Ethernet ports -- these can plug in directly to your home's gigabit enabled router and actually connect at speeds up to one gigabit per second. WiFi does not currently broadcast at gigabit speeds. However, your WiFi speeds will be noticeably faster with gigabit Internet.
No. EATEL's GIG is not meant for commercial or business use. We do offer business-grade Internet solutions. To learn more, contact us: 225-621-4300
