123NET, the Southfield-based fiber internet, colocation, and voice services provider, is continuing its residential internet service rollout in Detroit’s University District.
123NET’s Home Fiber Internet solution is said to be the first of its kind to provide 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) fiber internet to Detroit residences that the company says is 100 times faster than competing services.
“Most of the homes in the University District were built in the 1920s and 1930s, often considered the golden age of housing,” says Ryan Duda, chief technology officer at 123NET. “We’re excited to bring the gold standard of technology to these residents. As we’ve learned over the past couple of years, homeowners require robust internet to meet their business, education, and entertainment needs. Our services meet these needs with unprecedented speed and capacity at an affordable price.”
The company says residential customers can expect connectivity that provides stable and reliable service for high-speed data and multimedia applications to ensure “a superior online experience.”
According to Duda, the new service is completely different from most available residential internet service providers and cable companies in that it uses state-of-the-art technology to deliver business-grade service to homeowners.
“We want to provide a new standard for internet performance in Michigan,” Duda says. “With a 123NET 10-gbps connection, customers can download a 4K movie in less than a minute.”
According to 123NET, its Farmington Hills pilot was a success and expects to add new neighborhoods to its service area. The University District deployment currently is in the advanced design phase, so customers in the area who wish to be included should contact 123NET here.
