Shallotte, NC – ATMC announced today that the cooperative had recently increased speeds for more than 12,000 members with cable modem Internet service. In an effort to enhance customer’s Internet experience at home, ATMC doubled broadband speeds on its 25 Mbps, 50 Mbps, and 100 Mbps packages and increased the 200 Mbps package to an incredible 300 Mbps. These speed increases were made with no additional cost to the member.
“We know how important connectivity is in today’s home,” said Keith Holden, ATMC CEO. “We want our customers to have fast Internet service at a great value, which is why we increased speeds on our most popular cable modem packages. This is just one way we are continuing to improve our Internet services for all members and customers.”
The speed increase for cable modem customers is part of ATMC’s Project 2019 which is improving services and bringing faster speeds to customers throughout Brunswick County, including the cooperative’s most rural communities. Network upgrades have been underway for over a year and as a result faster Internet services are now available in the rural communities of Bolivia, Longwood, Prospect, Honey Island, Sunset Harbor, and Midway. ATMC is currently working to upgrade Internet speeds in the communities of Ash, Supply, Pireway, and areas west of Shallotte on Highway 130. More will follow in 2019.
In total, ATMC’s Project 2019 is a $6 million dollar investment which will have the potential to bring faster Internet services to over 6,000 homes in Brunswick County by the end of next year. Eventually, ATMC will cease providing DSL broadband services over telephone lines and convert all customers to either cable modem Internet services or fiber optic services. “Brunswick County is growing and changing, and this investment is critical to providing our members with a reliable Internet network they can connect with for years to come,” commented Holden.
