Grande has made it their mission to offer their Texas customers the fastest internet speeds at the absolute best value. With no contracts, no bandwidth usage caps, easy installation and affordable pricing, it is quick and simple for customers to access seriously fast internet speeds to surf, stream, download, work and game online on multiple devices at the same time, like never before.

Customers in these areas that are now able to enjoy Grande’s expanded Gigabit internet service will notice a big difference in their online activities as the upgrade brings unparalleled speed, reliability and capacity over the traditional internet experience. With download speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps, users can download 100 songs or a two-hour movie in just a few seconds.

Grande was the first provider to deliver 1 Gigabit internet service in Texas in 2014, and the company is now expanding the service throughout their service areas. It is beginning with Dallas, Midland, Odessa, Austin and San Marcos, with expansion to the rest of the company’s markets in the near future. The Gigabit installation process is quick and easy. Grande customers can receive Gigabit speeds through the same wiring they already have in their homes with the newly deployed state-of-the-art network technology DOCSIS 3.1.

“The capacity provided by 1 Gigabit is massive, and it more than keeps up with the explosive growth of internet usage,” said Matt Rohre, senior vice president of operations and general manager for Grande. “Year-over-year internet usage is increasing 35-50 percent and the average home now has 7.8 internet-connected devices, which represents an increase of 64 million devices over the past year alone. This continued trend confirms that DOCSIS 3.1 is a critical technology for the future, enabling not only Gigabit internet speeds, but also future enhancements such as IP video and other advanced services. Grande remains committed to staying at the forefront of innovation to offer customers the fastest speeds, increased reliability and the best customer experience.”

In addition to being the first to the market with 1 Gigabit speed over their competitors three years ago, Grande further differentiates itself from the competition with some additional advantages for customers. Unlike other providers, Grande will never share customer’s personal information or track online activity to sell to any company or organization.

Grande’s Gigabit internet service will be available in Dallas, Midland, Odessa, Austin and San Marcos starting April 25th with residential pricing starting at just $69.99/month and includes wireless home networking at no extra cost to the customer.
