KINGSTREE, SC — If you live in Williamsburg, Lee, Sumter, Clarendon or Lower Florence counties in South Carolina, your Internet access just got better. FTC is now offering Gigabit Internet in its Fiber to the Home market, a connection that is up to 100 times faster than regular broadband Internet.
With Gigabit Internet, online users and web surfers can download videos and online television shows without buffering, stream songs in seconds and connect with friends and family on social media in a blink. The faster Internet service also allows customers to connect more devices to the network without congestion.
FTC Gigabit Internet is only available for FTC Fiber to the Home (FTTH) residential customers. Services start at $79.99 per month with a qualifying line and Gigabit bundles start at $124.95. Activation and installation of FTC Gigabit Internet is free.
Until now, Gigabit speed was available only in larger metropolitan markets and even then only in select areas of those markets. FTC, the only area provider to bring this level of service to local residents, will be able to offer nearly 15,000 homes Gigabit Internet service.
“To increase Gigabit accessibility, we are continuing to expand our Fiber to the Home network,” said Chip Chase, public relations director for FTC. “Offering this level of speed is important to us because we want our customers to have the most advanced Internet product available.”
