GoNetspeed, a fiber-optic broadband service provider, started offering residential service in Ambridge in October.
"Our initial service territory in Pittsburgh was Ambridge. Our expansion plans include adding Beaver Falls, Economy, Conway and Monaca in early January, and then expanding out further to Beaver, Baden, Rochester and other communities shortly thereafter."
GoNetspeed's residential plans start at $50 for 100 Megabit of bandwidth, and also includes 500 Megabit and 1 Gigabit options as well.
"We had our service installed yesterday, and these are the upload and download speeds we're getting (105 mbps/105 mbps). If you're not geeky, let me assure you that these are smokin' fast speeds" shared Ambridge resident, Alan Freed.
“We’re thrilled to be providing both business and residential service to the Pittsburgh community,” said Frank Chiaino, Chairman of GoNetspeed. “Our value proposition of high-speed, high-value service not only increases bandwidth alternatives in Pittsburgh, but could also provide an economic advantage to the other communities we serve.”
Freed added " Last night I uploaded a video to YouTube in under two minutes. The same video took me several hours when I originally posted it. I have also tried streaming three devices in HD simultaneously, which was no problem. "
"The installation crew was fast and very friendly, and so far I am thrilled with them."
The company has plans to expand service to other communities in Pennsylvania and Connecticut as well as other areas where interest is generated.
