Hawaiian Telcom to Launch Hawaii's only 1 Gig Internet Service

  • Hawaiian Telcom
HONOLULU — Hawaiian Telcom is about to boost Hawaiʻi's fastest Internet speed with the launch of its new Fiber 1 Gig Internet service that delivers speeds of 1 Gbps, doubling it s current maximum speed of 500 Mbps speed.

"Innovations like this prove that we have transformed ourselves from being just the phone company to Hawaiʻi's technology leader," said Eric K. Yeaman, Hawaiian Telcom's president and CEO. "We are proud to be the only local company investing millions to expand our next generation broadband infrastructure, enabling speeds that are not only the fastest in Hawaiʻi but among the fastest in the nation."

Over the past six years, Hawaiian Telcom has poured almost half a billion dollars into its next generation fiber network and systems, and will invest close to $100 million this year alone.

Statewide Availability
Hawaiian Telcom's Fiber 1 Gig service, which is equal to 1,000 Mbps, will be available to consumers with Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) technology statewide. About 96,000 locations will initially qualify for Fiber 1 Gig with more being added as Hawaiian Telcom's expansive deployment of fiber optic technology continues. "Hawai'i is our home and only focus, so we take seriously our responsibility as Hawai'i's technology leader — to expand the superhighway that delivers the next generation services our customers want today and future services that have yet to be conceived," added Yeaman.

As the number of bandwidth-hungry smart devices in the home and office environment continues to increase, Fiber 1 Gig provides more than enough capacity and speed to support multiple devices simultaneously without sacrificing quality. Hawaiian Telcom customers will be able to download and stream high-definition video content, work, shop and play games online instantly and seamlessly – all from the same shared connection. People who utilize cloud-based services will also see significant speed increases when transferring large or multiple files into or from the cloud.
