New, Faster Upload Speeds for 50Mb and 100Mb Packages
September 6, 2013 Leave a comment
Direct Communications in Eagle Mountain has increased the upload speeds included in the regular 50Mbps and 100Mbps download speed tiers. (The upload speeds were previously 5Mbps and 10Mbps respectively.) The default upload speed for the 50Mbps package will now be 15Mbps, and the 100Mbps will have a 25Mbps upload speed.
Kip Wilson, General Manager for Direct Communications in Eagle Mountain, explained that the reason for this upload speed increase was to create more value for customers on these premium speed packages, and more fully differentiate these premium services from the lower tiers. “We looked at the 30 down and 5 up, compared to the 50 down and 5 up, and wanted to give tech savvy customers a significant increased benefit and real reason to upgrade to the 50Mbps tier; so now, not only will they nearly double their download speeds, but also triple their upload bandwidth.”
For customers who want to go fully symmetrical, so that their upload speed matches their download speed (these would be the online class: heavy internet users, content creators, telecommuters, bloggers, gamers etc, who push as much to the cloud as they download from the internet) Direct Communications offers fully symmetrical fiber optic service for just $15 more per month. Customers can choose 20/20, 30/30, or even 50/50 fiber optic service in Eagle Mountain, which is a very unique offering.
