Virginia's BVU OptiNet Completes Major Internet Speed Increase

  • BVU OptiNet
BRISTOL, VA — BVU OptiNet, a municipal FTTH provider serving southwest Virginia, recently completed a major increase of residential Internet speeds for 98 percent of its customer base. These Internet speed boosts ensure that OptiNet not only provides the fastest top-tier Internet package in the area, but also provides Southwest Virginia with a full offering of the most robust data packages available. All standard high-speed Internet subscribers have seen enhanced speeds – some experiencing up to 150 percent increases over their previous speeds, at no additional charge. Customers have been notified with detailed communications about their specific package improvements and speed upgrades.

“These significant speed increases and network enhancements will allow our Internet customers to get the most out of their OptiNet experience,” said BVU Marketing Director, Sharon Kyser. “With this recent service upgrade, customers can enjoy our robust Internet even more. Whether streaming video, downloading music or even gaming, the experience is second to none.”

Free Speed Upgrades Up to 150 Mbps
Most notably, residential customers who subscribed to OptiNet’s 30 Mbps plan are now receiving up to 50 Mbps; and customers who subscribed to the 110 Mbps package are experiencing up to 150 Mbps. “Our customers have come to expect the most advanced broadband network and services in the region, and we are committed to providing a superior experience to meet their expectations,” said Mark Lane, BVU CTO. “We are proud to offer the highest Internet bandwidths and most reliable network in our service area.”

Since 2002, OptiNet has been offering Internet speeds up to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps). Customers can now access the area’s fastest speeds at an even better value. The top-tier package price has been reduced by $50 per month. “These Internet speed upgrades come as a realization of BVU’s goal to provide the best services at the highest possible value,” said Don Bowman, BVU President and CEO. “2015 marks BVU’s 70th year as part of the Southwest Virginia community; we are committed to providing the services our region deserves.”

The enhanced Internet speeds arrive just in time for a top-to-bottom evaluation and upgrade of the OptiZones WiFi network login portal. Slated to be complete in April 2015, the new login portal will allow improved access to the robust Wi-Fi system throughout popular areas of Bristol, Virginia. High-speed Internet customers will receive priority access to the same quality service they enjoy at home – while on the go.
