Vast Broadband, one of the region’s leading broadband Internet providers, just rolled out the first phase of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) Internet service to the Black Hills. Vast residential and business services are currently available to almost 60,000 potential customers in the Black Hills region.
Vast Broadband’s 1 Gig Internet service offers customers high-speed Internet with no data caps, no contract, and a 30-day money-back guarantee. Prices start as low as $79.99 a month and include a free in-home WiFi assessment. This assessment tells homeowners where and why WiFi signal strength may be weak in their homes, and how to correct it.
Gig service aims to meet the increasing demand of both residential and business customers for faster networks and speeds.
“The need for fast, reliable Internet service grows every year for consumers. Vast Broadband wants to make sure we’re meeting and exceeding the needs of customers. We know our network is best positioned to grow with customers today and into the future,” said Chris Karn, regional director of operations at Vast Broadband.
This is the first phase of 1 Gig rollout in the Black Hills. Service is available to Spearfish and most of Rapid City. The buildout will continue in the region with Sturgis, Lead, Deadwood, Belle Fourche and other service locations in the Black Hills to follow in January and February.
Vast Broadband will be bringing 1 Gig service to Eastern South Dakota and Southwest Minnesota in early 2019. Buildout has already begun in this area.
“We’ve invested more than $60 million across South Dakota and Southwest Minnesota in the past four years. This has brought network upgrades and better infrastructure to develop a solid, future-proof network that can service the needs of consumers in the region,” said Karn. “We plan to continue bringing cutting-edge technology and best-in-class service across Internet, cable, smart home and phone service.”
1 Gig Internet brings some of the most reliable and fastest service available, that guarantees minimal delays. With Vast 1 Gig Internet, customers can expect to download about 100 songs in three seconds, upload 1,000 photos in a minute, download an HD movie in less than 60 seconds, and stream videos with no delay.
Business owners in the Black Hills region know a fast, reliable Internet connection is a critical component to their productivity and profitability. Businesses can expect 1 Gig speeds and more with higher upload speeds to meet their needs. Vast offers a multitude of diverse solutions for small, medium and large enterprise businesses.
Vast 1 Gig Internet is now available for customers in Rapid City and Spearfish. It’s available for pre-order to all potential customers in the Black Hills. Customers in Eastern South Dakota can expect preorders to open early 2019. For special early bird rates, visit VastBroadband.com or call 888-745-2888 for details.
