Garrett County, Maryland Gets Serious High Speed Internet Upgrade

Live in Garrett County, MD? You’re about to get a serious update on your internet speeds. You might be saying, “But wait, I don’t live anywhere near there”. You’re right, most of you don’t. For those of you that do, this is your time to brag. Along with all those lucky people who live in an area with Google Fiber. Here’s looking at you Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Kansas City, Nashville and the handful of other cities.

From the press release,

Declaration Networks Group, Inc. (DNG) successfully launched its NeuBeam™ High Speed Internet service (www.neubeam.com) in portions of southernGarrett County, MD, offering residential and business broadband at speeds up to 20x greater than available offerings, with no data caps for any service packages.

Paul Edwards, chair of Garrett County’s board of commissioners, said, “We are excited to be partnering with DNG on the launch of NeuBeam.  Providing robust Internet services benefits the County in many ways, including economic development opportunities and educational advancement.  Having enhanced Internet is critical to the needs of both Garrett County residents and visitors alike.”

Customer feedback has been very positive.  Jen Durben, a Garrett County resident said, “I was beyond excited to learn that NeuBeam was available in my area. The process from beginning to end was very easy. The technical team was very friendly and great to work with. They handled the installation quickly and efficiently and I can’t be happier to have high speed Internet in my home.”

From an economic development perspective, the launch of NeuBeam service is an important milestone representing enormous value to the County. Residents and businesses now have access to cost-effective broadband service, making possible telework, home-based businesses, and home schooling.  With the introduction of NeuBeam service, the County will be able to close the homework gap for many students in the County schools who do not currently have broadband in their homes.

“NeuBeam customers in Garrett County are for the first time enjoying affordable, high speed access to the Internet,” said Bob Nichols, CEO of Declaration Networks Group, Inc. “DNG proudly joins Garrett County and the Appalachian Regional Commission in their commitment to provide advanced technology solutions that support the needs of the digital generation.”

DNG’s NeuBeam service is now available in portions of Garrett County as well as several markets in Maryland and Virginia, leveraging fiber networks and unlicensed spectrum allocated by the FCC to efficiently support the use of quality broadband services.  DNG is a leader in the deployment of broadband networks and pioneering wireless technologies, including TV White Space frequencies which are deployed in much of the unserved parts of Garrett County to address the challenging mountainous terrain and heavy foliage.

So now we come to the all important part of the article. The end, and most importantly, the comment section. What do you think? Will they deliver on the speeds? Have NeuBeam and want to brag? Leave a quick comment before you close this page out. Thanks for reading!
