GoNetSpeed ​​to Expand Fiber Optic Internet Service in CT

An upstate New York broadband internet service provider has released plans to expand its fiber optic network in Connecticut.

GoNetspeed, of Rochester, NY, provides service in several Hartford County communities, including Southington and West Hartford. The company announced plans to expand service to two more communities in Hartford County, four in New Haven County and two in Fairfield County.

The expansion includes the following communities:

Fairfield County: Fairfield, including Southport and Trumbull

Hartford County: Enfield and Windsor Locks


New Haven County: Branford, Cheshire, Naugatuck and Waterbury

GoNetspeed’s expansion provides consumers with alternatives to the high-speed service provided by Frontier Communications and Norwalk-based cable television companies.

GoNetspeed’s expansion in Branford will include service to over 8,900 locations, over 5,000 in Cheshire, over 12,800 in Naugatuck and over 18,500 in Waterbury. Service to Branford, Cheshire and Naugatuck is expected to be available in late summer with fiber optic cable connections to Waterbury available this fall, company officials say.

“The importance of reliable high-speed Internet access has never been more apparent than it is now,” said Richard Clark, CEO of GoNetspeed.

“What a lot of people don’t appreciate until they have access to gigabit fiber is that it provides symmetric speeds, which means faster upload and download speeds,” said said Clark. “This is a huge benefit for households that work from home, homeschool, watch multiple TVs, see doorbells and security cameras, and demand unparalleled performance for all their internet-related activities. “

GoNetspeed’s network expansion in Hartford County is in Enfield, where the service will be available later this summer to more than 7,000 homes and businesses, and in Windsor Locks, where 4,864 homes and businesses will be added to the late spring.

GoNetspeed’s expansion into Fairfield County will make fiber optic service available to nearly 9,000 homes. The company’s expansion to Fairfield, including Southport, will be available this summer, while the fiber optic network extension to Trumbull will be available in the fall.

GoNetspeed offers residential internet speeds ranging from 150 megabits per second to 1 gigabit per second. The company serves residential and commercial customers in Connecticut and eight other states.
