While Bolt Fiber Optic continues their roll-out of fiber optic services in the Grand Lake region, Vyve Broadband has now entered the competition by offering world class broadband with up to 1 Gigabit per second internet service to some folks in the Grand Lake area.

Here is a complete release from Vyve Broadband with the announcement.

Vyve Broadband’s mission is to provide rural communities with world-class broadband Internet service that levels the playing field. Today, Vyve has taken the next step in that mission with the launch of 1 Gigabit-per-second Internet service to customers in Ketchum and Monkey Island, Oklahoma.

The local Vyve team recently completed successful testing of 1 Gig service, and it is now available to local residents and businesses. The boost to 1 Gig service increases our fastest Internet speeds by more than nine times.

“We are excited to add Ketchum and Monkey Island, Oklahoma to our growing list of 1 Gig markets,” said Jeffrey DeMond, chief executive officer for Vyve Broadband. “’Vyve Gig’ will be a key product for certain business and residential customers who have unique needs, such as people who work from home or those using graphics-heavy gaming and visual design software. These folks will have all the bandwidth they need and more.”

As online speed demand continues to increase year over year, ‘Vyve Gig’ will provide users the ability to keep pace. Residents with multiple connected devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers, TVs and gaming systems will be able to run their devices concurrently without interruption.

“While we recognize that 1 Gig is probably more speed than most customers need at this moment, it’s clear that the online technology, information and entertainment landscape is evolving on an almost daily basis. What’s incredibly fast today will be the norm tomorrow,” DeMond says. “Vyve wants to build the network now that our customers will want and demand in the future. We’re committed to long-term relationships with our customers, and part of that commitment is looking not only at their current needs, but what their needs will be several years down the road.”

Vyve encourages customers who are interested in ‘Vyve Gig’ service to call 1-855-FOR-VYVE.
