Suddenlink Subscribers Now Have Hope
With construction beginning in 2021, Vexus Fiber plans to have full-network completion within 24 months. Some neighborhoods and businesses in Tyler will see network availability in 2022.
This network extension is part of an ongoing construction plan financed by existing investors Pamlico Capital and Oak Hill Capital, who have agreed to invest an additional $50 million towards the expansion into Tyler, Tx. “We are extremely pleased with the progress the team at Vexus Fiber delivers. They continue to bring gigabit capacity to residents of cities in Texas and Louisiana,” added Art Roselle of Pamlico Capital.
Fiber Internet service is more reliable because it has a higher data capacity and bandwidth, is less susceptible to outside interference, and has a much lower latency than a traditional copper connection. Vexus Fiber service will deliver up to 10 Gig Internet speeds, along with all-digital TV and phone service for residential customers. Business customers will have access to data connections scalable up to 10 Gigs, TeleCloud-hosted voice solutions as well as TV channel packages tailored for all business types.
