U.S Internet Speed and Affordability

Greenville is not alone. We have a severe internet speed and price problem. While Charter Coaxial service is a making waves with faster speeds and better pricing, those not in the immediate service area are left with few options.

Even with AT&T claims to offer their u-Verse Broadband. Most are promised a higher speed and once the tech arrives are told they will only be eligible for the older DSL speeds. 

The situation is even worse for our local business community. Often forced to use older and more expensive T1 connections vs more modern fiber or coaxial services. T1 pricing is astronomical compared to the speed being offered. 

Still, fiber services remain out of reach for most area small businesses due to pricing.
