Austin, Texas (August 1, 2017) – Grande Communications, the Texas-based broadband communications company offering internet, TV and phone services, announces the expansion of the company’s 1 gigabit internet service to home and business subscribers in Central Texas areas.

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 traditional internet speeds. With download speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps, users can quickly download and stream songs and movies. With no mandatory contracts, no bandwidth usage caps and affordable pricing, it is quick and simple for customers to get the ultimate entertainment and technology experience. Customers can access epic-fast internet speeds to surf, stream, download, work and game online on multiple devices at the same time.

Grande was the first provider to deliver 1 gigabit internet in Texas in 2014, and the company is now expanding 1 gig throughout their service areas. Grande began the expansion with Dallas, Midland, Odessa, Austin and San Marcos in April 2017, and most recently Corpus Christi in July. The expansion to the remaining San Antonio market will be complete by end of summer, 2017. 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.

“We continue to expand our services in this vital and growing region of Central Texas. Grande extended its service to Temple in April 2016 as part of its acquisition of Temple-based cable and internet company, Centrovision. In 2017, we have further expanded the availability of our service to thousands of homes and businesses throughout both the Waco and Temple areas,” said Matt Rohre, senior vice president of operations and general manager for Grande. "Our launch of 1 gigabit internet services in these areas delivers on our promise to remain at the forefront of innovation by offering customers the fastest internet speeds coupled with the best customer experience possible.”

 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. Grande does not share customer’s personal information or track online activity to sell to any company or organization.

Residential pricing for 1 gigabit service starts at just $69.99/month and includes home Wi-Fi at no extra cost to the customer. Internet speeds observed by customers may vary based on device, connection, and other factors outside of Grande’s control. Home Wi-Fi requires monthly modem rental.
