As always, we will never throttle or cap your data use.
Many of our customers have experienced slowdowns when backing up data or downloading large files. With the sheer amount of bandwidth a Fiber connection provides, you will no longer experience slowdowns and can browse and watch without worry.
Over the years, our cameras and smartphones have improved in quality. As such, the images they take are now many times larger than in the past. Fear no more, with a Fiber connection, you can back up all of your photos to iCloud or Google Photos at up to 100x the rate.
What Does This Mean For You?
LMi.net can finally provide service separate from the utility lines owned by major telecommunications companies. This gives us a more direct means of servicing you and your internet connection. These new fiber lines will not suffer from the issues that copper wiring has in the past and will provide improved reliability as well as blazing fast internet.
There are many new options that will be open to you with this step forward in technology.
Why Do I Need Faster Internet?
Fiber connections can provide speed up to 1Gbps, or 1000Mbps, symmetrically. The average consumer in the US currently has access to 20Mbps download and 8Mbps upload. With this new connection, you can download or stream all the music, video, or other content you like with no stuttering, no buffering, and no interruptions. With the dramatically faster upload, you will be able to back up all of your content in minutes when it used to takes hours upon hours. For some, this could finally mean moving away from other services like cable or dish based entertainment and relying on a more personalized and ultimately cheaper entertainment package.
