From Country Roads to the Information Super Highway!
Trailwave is Habersham EMC's newest solution for the highest speed Internet service in our area.
Through a $42 million grant from the local, state and federal governments to the North Georgia Network (NGN), a 260-mile high-speed fiber optic ring is being constructed. This ring will connect with existing fiber networks to form a 1,000-mile loop when complete. Habersham EMC is proud to be a part of NGN, and as such will be building fiber networks throughout the service area. However, due to the stipulations of the grant and the timeline for construction, the fiber optic network will not cover the entire HEMC service area. Zones for construction are being identified and eligible members in those areas will be notified prior to construction.
This project will overwhelmingly improve broadband service in underserved areas and stimulate economic growth and job creation. Some of the benefits of Trailwave include:
- Plans starting at 15 Mbps (megabits per second) with faster plans available, with access up to one Gbps (gigabit per second)
- Connection speeds far beyond the capability of DSL, satellite, cable or any other means
- The reputation of reliability and local support from HEMC
- Other services such as telephone, video, video instant messaging and internet based storage will also be available in the coming months.
Current Internet connections do not have the capability to handle the amount of data that will be delivered to you in the future. Copper wires can deliver high bandwidth only over very short distances, which is fine if you live next to the DSL provider's equipment. Optical fiber does not have the same limitations. The fiber cable is capable of speeds that today's electronic equipment cannot yet handle. It is basically "future proof".
This is an exciting time for northeast Georgia. Are you ready to hit the trail with Trailwave?
