Kinetic Kickstarts Rollout of Ultra-Fast 2 Gig Fiber Internet

April 19, 2022

More Speed Means More Connected Devices Running Smoothly At Once

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As proof of the company’s continued promise to be an innovative high-speed internet industry leader, Kinetic announced the availability of 2 Gig Kinetic Fiber in select residential markets. In these premium markets, Kinetic will now boast the fastest speeds available from all service providers. The company will expand its multi-Gig offerings for home and business into more markets and higher speeds in the future.

“While many of our competitors are overlooking these markets, we’re optimizing them,” said Mark Lederman, vice president of product for Kinetic. “As more homes have more devices connected to the internet, from gaming systems to streaming movies to refrigerators, families need faster speed to accommodate the demand.”

The new 2 Gig Kinetic Fiber internet can provide up to 2,000 Mbps of speed—twice as fast as 1 Gig service. This speed, delivered via a 100% fiber optic connection, provides ultimate reliability and performance for support of more connected devices and users.

As part of its transformation from a telecommunications provider to a technology leader, Kinetic is involved in a multi-year $2 billion capital investment strategy across its 18-state footprint. Just last year, the company laid nearly 81,000 miles of next-generation fiber across the communities it serves, many of them small towns and rural areas. Additionally, the company is creating unique partnerships with cities, counties and other groups to drive fiber deeper into the network faster.

“Deciding to live in the community that’s right for your family shouldn’t mean compromising access to what your family needs to thrive,” said Lederman.

The launch of 2 Gig service further underscores the new strategic positioning of “We Leave No Town Behind” to share Kinetic’s mission to bring high-speed internet service to the towns other internet carriers overlooked.
