MVT Fiber Investment Makes Faster Internet Speeds Available

Download Graphics to ViewDuring 2014, MVDSL’s Internet traffic grew 50%. It should be no surprise to anyone that more people are watching movies and TV shows online. In fact, during most evenings Netflix alone accounts for about 70% of our Internet traffic. This is why in 2014 MVDSL made the following major investments:

  • Increased our capacity to the Internet by 50%.
  • Installed a new fiber system into Las Vegas with the potential of 88 Terabytes of data on two fibers. That is enough capacity to handle roughly 15 Million HD (1080p) movies at the same time.
  • Increased the capacity of our internal fiber network.
  • Added more locations where fiber to the home is available.
  • Installed more VDSL. Currently VDSL can support speeds of 100 Mb down and 50 Mb up. The speeds that it can support vary by distance.
  • Offered speeds more than 3 times that of our competitors.

In 2015, we will offer even faster speeds. Customers with fiber to their home will be able to upgrade to 100 Mb speeds within the next 30 to 60 days. We will also continue to grow our network.

Our fiber network uniquely qualifies us as the only local provider with the infrastructure to handle the future growth of the Internet. Wireless will never have the capacity of fiber. This is why wireless providers limit your usage or slow you way down after you reach a certain cap. Your 5 Gb data plan may sound like a lot, but you can exceed 5 Gb with just one HD movie.

As always, we appreciate our customers and we will continue to improve our service.

This Month's FAQ – What Do The Terms "Digital Native" And "Digital Immigrant" Mean?

Question: I've heard the terms "digital native" and "digital immigrant" but I don't know what they mean. Can you explain?

Download Graphics to ViewAnswer: The terms "digital native" and "digital immigrant" both refer to how much of their lives people have spent in the digital world. Digital natives are those who have been interacting with digital devices, and especially the Internet, all their lives and feel comfortable with this technology. Digital natives are usually people in Generation Y and younger.

Digital immigrants are typically people belonging to Generation X and previous generations, who experienced life before the Internet. These folks may have grown up with TV, video games, and early computers but were introduced to the Internet as teens or adults. They have adapted to the Internet and related technologies but the interaction isn't as comfortable as it is for younger users.
