In July 2023, the Emory Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and the City of Emory joined forces in a strategic partnership with Peoples Communication to embark on an ambitious endeavor: bringing fiber broadband connectivity to every household within the city's boundaries. This initiative represents a significant milestone in narrowing the digital divide, ensuring that all Emory residents gain access to dependable, high-speed internet services. Furthermore, Peoples Communication has introduced its cutting-edge fixed wireless technology, offering speeds of up to 300 Mbps for those residing outside the city limits, who have previously faced limited choices for high-speed internet access. Within the next 30 days, Peoples plans to activate service in areas that have been successfully completed, with the ultimate goal of finishing the entire project by December 2023.A fiber optic network delivers incredibly fast internet speeds, reaching gigabit and even multi-gigabit levels. This allows for quick downloads, seamless streaming, and lag-free online gaming. Fiber internet will also provide low latency, which is crucial for real-time applications like online gaming, video conferencing, and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls. Fiber optic technology is also considered future-proof because it can support emerging technologies and applications, such as cloud-based over-the-top services, augmented reality, and virtual reality, which require high-speed, low-latency connections.For Emroy residents this means streaming of 4K and ultra-HD with ease, next level gaming experiences, more productive remote working, and the ability to make your home a smart, connected home.For more details including speeds and pricing, contact Peoples at 800.333.9779 or go online to gopeoples.netImage title
