LA PORTE, Ind. – Surf Internet℠ has deployed multi-gig fiber-optic internet services in the City of La Porte, Indiana, making it Surf’s first multi-gig city in Indiana. Surf celebrated this extraordinary milestone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held at their La Porte call center on Wednesday, May 3.
In attendance were La Porte Mayor Tom Dermody, representatives of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership (LEAP), elected officials, community partners, and Surf team members.
“This is a celebration of the La Porte community’s transformation, the future of Surf Internet, and our ongoing partnership,” said Gene Crusie, Surf CEO. “This collaboration is a shining example of how we can work closely with rural and underserved communities to provide residents with the best innovations out there. Multi-gigabit broadband is the next evolution of the internet experience, which opens up unlimited opportunities for personal and economic transformation.”
“High-speed, low-cost internet is no longer a luxury – it’s a necessity,” said La Porte Mayor Tom Dermody. “As we work toward our goal of ‘30 by 30’ – that’s 30,000 residents by the year 2030 – the ability to call ourselves a multi-gig city will be instrumental in attracting businesses big and small to set up shop right here in La Porte. We are thrilled to be partnering once again with Surf Internet to achieve new heights.”
Customers who subscribe to a 2 Gig plan will experience a noticeable increase in symmetrical speeds for even faster upload and download of data. This is especially important when using an internet connection across multiple devices for e-learning, video conferencing, work-from-home, entertainment, and so much more. Likewise, commercial customers not already on a dedicated internet service will see up to a 10-fold increase in bandwidth.
La Porte residents within Surf’s service area are able to sign up for 2 Gig service packages immediately. Existing customers wishing to upgrade their plan will go through a simple sign-up process and be scheduled for in-home equipment installation. Visit https://surfinternet.com/2gig to get started.
