Upgrades Current Customers at No Additional Charge
Waynesboro, VA (June 27, 2019) – Lumos Networks, the first telecommunications services provider to bring reliable fiber Internet services to many area residents, announced today that it is doubling the speeds in its Essential and Premium broadband Internet service packages. Effective immediately, customers choosing the Essentials package will get 150 Mbps download speeds while the Premium package will now support 300 Mbps. Both packages provide reliable, unlimited Internet access with no throttling or data capping. The company also offers an Ultimate (1Gig) fiber Internet package at 1,000 Mbps. No-dead-spot managed Wi-Fi coverage is available with any fiber Internet service, and consumers can save when bundling fiber Internet with digital television or digital home phone services.
“Today’s consumers want faster speeds and greater bandwidth in order to support the growing number of connected devices”, said Diego Anderson, Senior VP and General Manager of Lumos Networks. “Smart homes, digital assistants, and increased work at home activities are all contributing to higher broadband demand, and our robust fiber network is ideally suited to reliably meet these needs both now and in the future.”
