GoNetspeed Fiber Broadband Service Set for Launch in Pittsburgh

  • GoNetspeed
PITTSBURGH — GoNetspeed, a fiber-optic broadband service provider, announced that it will begin offering high-speed connectivity to select communities in Pittsburgh, targeting both business and residential customers.

“We’re thrilled to be providing both business and residential service to the Pittsburgh community,” said Frank Chiaino, Chairman of GoNetspeed. “Our value proposition of high-speed, high-value service not only increases bandwidth alternatives in Pittsburgh, but could also provide an economic advantage to the other communities we serve.”

The company will begin offering residential service in Ambridge by October, with plans for service to Beaver Falls shortly after. GoNetspeed's residential plans start at $50 for 100 Mbps of bandwidth, and also includes 500 Mbps and 1 Gbps options as well.

According to a recent report from management consulting firm Deloitte, fiber-optic Internet reaches less than one-third of U.S. homes, “with only 39 percent of U.S. consumers having access to more than one provider who offers a 25 Mbps speed tier or higher.”

Utilizing an Existing Network
With the adoption of streaming services, bandwidth-intensive gaming, and shear number of Internet of Things (IoT), high-speed Internet connectivity to the home has become critical. GoNetspeed aims to bridge the digital divide by bringing fiber-optic connections directly to the customers it will serve by utilizing an existing network in Pittsburgh.

“The initial response to our service offering in Ambridge and Beaver Falls has been tremendous,” added Chiaino. “We’re now actively engaging in build plans, adding to our staff, and looking forward to working with local contractors and community leaders in an effort to provide high-speed connectivity with exceptional customer service.”

Serving the Business Community
GoNetspeed will also serve the business community with Internet and Ethernet services throughout Pittsburgh. It has hired a local sales person, and will shortly add other engineering and support personnel locally, while having its headquarters in Rochester, NY.

Previously, Chiaino was the founder of Fibertech Networks, which built nearly 14,000 miles of metro fiber networks across the Northeast. GoNetspeed’s management team has decades of experience operating fiber networks. Larry Coleman is president of GoNetspeed, and was most recently the president and founder of Sunesys. In addition, Tom Perrone is the chief operating officer, and was previously vice president of engineering and planning for Fibertech Networks.

The company has plans to expand service to other communities in Pennsylvania, California, and Florida, as well as in other areas where interest is generated.
