ROCK HILL, S.C. – (Oct. 26, 2015) – Citing the goals of improving its broadband network performance and allowing for future Internet speed increases, Comporium announced today that it has begun a series of projects in Tega Cay that will affect 1,500 residences.
Comporium plans to complete about half a dozen capital improvement projects that the company said will result in a significantly upgraded network within the city.
“We realized that last spring there were customer-affecting issues that needed immediate attention,” said Comporium’s Matthew Dosch, executive vice president of customer operations and external affairs. “We installed a major piece of equipment then that alleviated a lot of the congestion in our system, so that certainly helped with our recent speed increase.”
Early in September, Comporium raised the upper limits of its three tiers of cable modem Internet service to 15 Mbps (megabits per second), 60 Mbps and 100 Mbps from 12 Mbps, 25 Mbps and 50 Mbps, respectively.
Dosch added that Comporium has earmarked a portion of the network upgrade with a new state-of-the-art technology that it will be trialing for the first time. He said that this technology, if successful, will allow the company to build fiber optics deeper into existing neighborhoods, which will enable residents there to enjoy much higher Internet speeds and improved reliability.
Comporium will be introducing the fiber-fed service with the new technology along two legs, one toward the marina; the other toward Point Clear Drive, which encompasses around 526 homes. Comporium plans to sub-divide a main node (switching hub) near the Tega Cay Fire Department into four separate nodes that will also further enhance the network’s ability to handle increased speeds and growth.
Other key areas for the capital improvement projects include: Tega Cay Drive (Shoreline and Heron Harbor Drive); Koala Circle; Tega Cay at Seven Coves; Samoa Court; and, Windsong at Shoreline.
“With the new technology we’ll be trialing, we can further segment our node size by eliminating a significant portion of coaxial facilities, which enables us to put nodes closer to the residents,” Dosch added. “By doing this, we can prepare for additional speed increases.”
