CROCKETT — More than 2,500 homes and businesses in the Crockett area, or a third of the community, are now equipped for ultrahigh-speed internet with the deployment of optical fiber by network provider Kinetic.
“Fiber in Crockett means you’ll have more bandwidth to stream, game and surf on every device in your house,” Kinetic state operations President Danny Ferguson said. “And your connection will stay superfast no matter how many other people are online. They can even be streaming a movie and you’ll still have the same connection.”
He added that Kinetic’s fiber-optic network offers users symmetrical speeds to upload and download at 1,000 megabits, or one gigabit, a second.
“Fiber is the technology that can meet today’s demands and tomorrow’s potential,” Ferguson said. “‘High Speed for Here’ now includes Crockett.”
The Crockett fiber project is part of a $2 billion multiyear capital investment strategy to dramatically expand gigabit internet service across Kinetic’s 18-state footprint.
