Dalton Utilities Rolls Out 10 Gig Residential Services

08/05/2019 | 07:23am EDT

Lightning-fast Internet service now available to OptiLink customers

Dalton is well established as a provider of ultra-fast Internet service since launching one of the first municipal Fiber-to-the-Home networks in 2003. The launch of GIGLink™ in 2018 made Dalton home to some of the fastest Internet in the U.S., by making available a dedicated Gigabit service to every single home in the community. Today, Dalton Utilities’ OptiLink raises the bar even further by announcing the debut of 10 GIGLink™, a 10 Gig residential service offering the fastest Internet speed available in the world to a residential subscriber.

The FCC currently defines broadband as 25Mbps down/ 3Mbps up. The new 10 Gig service affords downloads and uploads up to 400 times faster than the national average and 100 times faster than the “up to” speeds advertised by local competition. Multiple studies have shown that these networks are critical infrastructure, supporting economic development and enabling access to advanced tele-education and tele-medicine resources outside of local community resources.

“We are proud to offer our residents the very best in ultra-high-speed Internet and next generation video delivering services wanted and needed by so many communities,” says Dalton Utilities’ Hank Blackwood, Chief Technical Services Officer. “Very few areas have this level of fiber optic capability.”

“The US market for smart technology devices within the home is projected to reach $78.5 billion by 2024, rising from $7.05 billion in 2019. With this rise in smart technology, which offers a totally interconnected, easy-to-control environment within the home, our new service places our area squarely in the nexus of the digital revolution. While 10 Gigs may be more than most need today, I can promise you Dalton will be ready for all things Internet in the future.”

In Dalton, 1 Gigabit connections start at $79.95 and 10 Gigabit connections are $349.95. Residents can sign up for these services by calling 706-529-1313 or signing up at optilink.us/giglink.
