TEC Launches Fiber Broadband For Cherokee Residents

Cherokee, Ala. – The expansion of high-speed Internet via fiber has been added to the host of high-speed Internet solutions at TEC. This deployment of fiber optic technology is now available in the downtown Cherokee area. Higher broadband speeds are accessible with the new fiber build.   TEC encourages everyone in the local community to find out more about this exciting new product and how it can affect the overall online experience.

“With our new fiber offerings, local residents will be able to stream high definition programs at much faster rates while supporting multiple connected devices,” said Joey F. Garner, Executive Vice President. “Fiber is unquestionably the fastest, most versatile high-speed Internet connection with no Internet slowdowns during peak hours.  We are pleased to offer these increased Internet options for our Cherokee customers”

Garner added, “Even if broadband speeds become 1000 times faster in 10 years, a single existing fiber optic connection will still be able to support it.”

Fiber optic technology uses light instead of electricity to transmit data utilizing higher frequencies and greater capacity levels.  Made from glass or plastic, this allows data to travel greater distances with limited interference and energy loss.
