As a technologically advanced and locally owned communications company, Comporium felt strongly that it could support the future knowledge-based economy with ultra-fast Internet service. Named Zipstream, the service provides download and upload speeds of 1,000 megabits per second (mbps) – or one Gigabit – over Comporium’s fiber optic network. The vision is to make the communities that Comporium serves a recognized hub for recruiting, launching, and growing high-impact technology businesses. Further, Comporium’s residential customers in fiber neighborhoods will also have the opportunity to experience the “digital lifestyle” provided by the advantages of Zipstream.
