YADKINVILLE — According to broadbandnow.com, a comparison and research website that helps consumers understand their Internet options, almost no one in Davie, Yadkin and Iredell counties has had access to 100Mbps Internet speeds — until now.
Yadtel Telecom recently launched its 100Mbps Internet service for residential and business customers. For those able to get Yadtel’s fiber optic service, Internet download speeds up to 100Mbps are now possible.
The company began offering the service in September and the reception has been even better than expected, according to Yadtel’s Customer Service Manager Jenny Dwiggins.
“The response from our customers has been amazing,” Dwiggins said. “We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but we are adding upgrades to the higher speeds daily.”
Although Yadtel has not yet completely covered its primary service areas in Davie, Yadkin and northern Iredell counties with fiber optics, more than 60 percent of the company’s customers currently have access to fiber. That is well above the state average which is just under 10 percent, according to broadbandnow.
