Internet service in Puyallup offers the fastest connection to date

Internet service in Puyallup now offers speeds of up to 8 gigabits per second in some parts of town.

Lumen Technologies’ first fiber Internet service, quantum fiber, serves some residents and small businesses, according to an Aug. 3 news release. People can choose from several multi-gigabit plans, ranging from 1 to 8 gigabits. These plans range from around $49 to $300 per month.

One of the plans offers 1 gigabit, which can support an entire home with people participating in regular online activities such as online courses and telehealth. Another package offers 3 gigabits, intended for live streaming or video conferencing.

The 8-gigabit package offers “a meta-verse-ready connection,” according to a press release. This speed is for content creators, video editors or extreme gamers. It also allows instant downloading.

“This is a game-changer for residents of Puyallup who want to expand their horizons with multi-gigabit connections,” said Maxine Moreau, president of Lumen Mass Markets, in the press release. “We are excited to bring this cutting-edge technology to Puyallup to help families and businesses thrive in a digital world.”

The company also offers service in other parts of Pierce County, such as Tacoma, Sumner, Bonney Lake and Orting.
