CenturyLink Expands Gigabit Service to La Crosse, Wis.

  • CenturyLink
LA CROSSE, WI — CenturyLink announced that symmetrical broadband speeds up to 1 Gbps are now available to residential and small business customers in select locations in La Crosse through its ultra-fast fiber optic network.

CenturyLink is using fiber-to-the-premises technology to provide access to some of the fastest upload and download Internet speeds currently available in the U.S. Speeds up to 1 Gbps, equivalent to 1,000 Mbps, allow users to stream high-definition video content with little to no delays and download movies, songs and TV shows in seconds. Customers who have multiple devices connected to one Internet connection in the home will have more than enough capacity and speed to support other uses of broadband such as online gaming, home automation, and increasingly important cloud services.

Gigabit Speeds Boost Small Businesses
Gigabit speeds will help small businesses increase productivity and efficiency while working in the cloud, sharing multimedia files, streaming video content and backing-up data in real-time. In addition, CenturyLink’s 1 Gbps service offers symmetrical speeds allowing customers to upload information as fast as they download it.

“In an age where technology is a big part of our daily lives, it’s exciting to know our community will have the fastest Internet speeds in the country,” said Jim Hill, La Crosse Area Development Corporation. “We hope this investment by CenturyLink helps connect families and businesses, and creates new innovation in our community.”

CenturyLink offers gigabit service in Platteville, Wis. as well as in 16 additional cities across the country.
