June 2, 2023, Aurora, Neb. — Hamilton Telecommunications, a leading technology and telecommunications company, has announced that they are nearing the end of mainline construction in Arcadia and are now ready to begin connecting homes and businesses with direct fiber internet access. With fiber installation, Hamilton will be delivering the fastest Internet speeds available, including options such as our whole home Gigabit (Gig) plan that delivers up to 1 Gig internet speeds. Whole Home Gig delivers speeds that are eight times faster than the top speed previously offered by Hamilton and ranks among the fastest in the industry, nationwide.

“We know that the growing ‘Internet of Things’, including smart home and farming technologies, has greatly increased the need for more broadband. Fiber-to-the-Home broadband is the highest standard of Internet service and will dramatically increase the reliability, speeds and services our customers can receive,” said John Nelson, CEO of Hamilton Telecommunications.

Hamilton is engaged in a multi-year project to bring fiber to all the homes and businesses of customers within the company’s local telephone exchange areas, including the Nebraska Central Telephone Company exchanges. “We are proud and excited to continue the construction that the previous owners of NCTC began, giving fiber to the home access for 100% of our customers,” Nelson said.

The company is now moving toward the final steps of the construction process in Arcadia. As construction nears completion, customers in the Arcadia area will be receiving letters in the mail notifying them that construction will soon begin in their neighborhood. Elite, a contracted company, will be completing the direct in-home installation. Customers can now contact Hamilton to schedule service or learn about new plans and speeds available to them soon.

“Our communities are great places for our residents to live, work and play, and we want to ensure that they have access to the best connectivity to Internet, video, managed wi-fi services and more,” said Dan Molliconi, Chief Operating Officer at Hamilton. “This project will enable our customers to have the fastest, most reliable, Internet service available without increasing prices.”

The three top speed tiers for customers will increase to 50 Mbps download/ 25 Mbps upload; 250 Mbps download/ 50 Mbps Upload; and Whole Home 1 Gig download/ 250 Mbps upload. These increased speeds allow Hamilton fiber to the home customers to choose the best speeds for their household needs and allow customers to have multiple devices online by multiple users simultaneously without experiencing slowdown in their internet connection.

Hamilton is pleased to be on the forefront of this technology as fiber to the home is not widely available across the country, especially in rural areas. This infrastructure will position Hamilton to continue to provide faster speeds and reliable service for many years to come.

The new internet speed plans will be available for customers once they have fiber installed in their homes. To learn more about Fiber to the Home access for your home or business, please contact the business office at 308-468-6347, or visit www.Hamilton.net/fiber-to-the-home.
