Eastlink is the #1 Internet provider in Sudbury
Fastest internet speeds
Sudbury, Ont. – Eastlink announced today that the company is leveraging a multi-million investment in its fibre infrastructure to launch the fastest speeds ever seen in Sudbury. Eastlink is giving its internet speeds a turbo-charge with the launch of the company’s latest Internet speed innovation - Eastlink Internet 200 Mbps and Internet 80 Mbps.
“We’ve understood for a long time how people are using the Internet, and just how important faster download speeds are to our customers,” says Jack Nolan, Eastlink Regional Manager.
Nolan explains that there is an explosion in the growth of internet usage. “As multiple, internet-connected devices are becoming more and more prevalent in the average home, download speed requirements have grown exponentially, around 40% annually. To put the speed of 200 Mbps in context, movie buffs can download a full length feature film in HD in just a few minutes and 700 CD-quality songs in that same time frame."
Eastlink president and COO Deborah Shaffner, says the company is proud to deliver on its promise to provide the most advanced telecommunications products to Sudbury customers with this latest launch. "With internet speeds that are faster than our competitors, we continue to be the leading internet service provider in Sudbury."
This latest innovation follows closely on the heels of the company's unveiling of its most advanced suite of video products and services, which includes:
Nolan notes that the company is confident that its new Internet 80 product will be particularly popular with Bundle customers. “It is the fastest download speed available in a bundle here in Sudbury and for many of our subscribers across the country."
Eastlink was the first Internet service provider in Northern Ontario to offer Internet speeds of up to 100Mbps and is now the first to offer speeds to 200Mbps.
Eastlink expects to roll out Internet 200 and Internet 80 in the next couple of weeks.
