  • Hawaiian Telcom
HONOLULU - Hawaiian Telcom, a local provider of integrated communications solutions for business and residential customers, announced Hawaii's fastest Internet, featuring speeds of up to 500 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload, fueled by its rapidly expanding next-generation fiber network. Hawaiian Telcom's new speeds are exponentially higher than anything currently available in the local market.

Beginning on March 2, many Oahu consumers will be able to sign up for broadband speed tiers of 100, 300 and 500 Mbps, with even higher speeds available to businesses. Hawaiian Telcom will continue investing in its next-generation fiber network, expanding its reach every day.

Fastest Speeds in the Hawaiian Islands
"Hawaiian Telcom's expansive deployment of fiber optic technology is connecting Hawaii to the world with speeds never before seen in the islands," said Eric K. Yeaman, Hawaiian Telcom's president and CEO. "We've invested $125 million in our next-generation fiber network and systems and there is more to come. As a committed local company with deep roots in the islands, Hawaiian Telcom is dedicated to meeting Hawaii's bandwidth needs today and into the future."

Meeting Exploding Consumer Demand
Consumer demand for more bandwidth has exploded in recent years with the rapid adoption of connected devices, such as smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and Web-enabled TVs. According to a November 2013 study conducted by Cisco Systems, the average US household owns nine Internet-connected devices.

Satisfying High Business Bandwidth Needs
Businesses' need for higher Internet speeds has also increased as more companies flock to the cloud to lower IT costs, ensure business continuity and enable access to their systems from anywhere, anytime, on any device. They are also utilizing more demanding applications that require higher bandwidth.

Hawaiian Telcom's next-generation fiber network enables Hawaii's fastest upload and download speeds, streaming of high-definition content and a superior experience with services such as video-conferencing and hosted applications.

With 500/50 Mbps (Download/Upload) speeds, customers can:

  • Download a 2 gigabyte high-definition video in less than 35 seconds compared to three minutes on 100/5 Mbps speed.

  • Upload a 1 gigabyte file to the cloud in less than three minutes compared to 28 minutes on 100/5 Mbps speed.
