Hill Country About To Get Fastest Internet in South Texas: Non-Profit
Co-Op Provides Fiber That Bigger Providers Won’t
Phillip Dampier December 16, 2009
GVTC Communications yesterday launched 40Mbps service across its service
area — the Hill Country north of San Antonio — marking a new broadband
speed achievement for south Texas.
The company providing the service is about to reap the rewards of a $35
million investment in a fiber-to-the-home network reaching 80 percent of
customers in North San Antonio and the Hill Country. The new premium
speed tier bests the company’s current 20Mbps service, and also includes
10Mbps upstream speed for $89.95 a month with a contract.
