PRESS RELEASE:  Peoples Telecommunications, LLC is now among the first providers to bring Gigabit Internet service to rural Kansas

Peoples Telecommunications, LLC is excited to announce they are now one of the first rural providers in Kansas to offer Gigabit Internet services to their residential and business customers.  Peoples is able to offer this service through their Fiber-to-the-home network in LaCygne, KS.

According to Gigcommunities.net “Gigabit broadband delivers 100x faster Internet speeds than traditional broadband, creating a next generation broadband experience that has no rival.”

In addition to Gigabit Internet services Peoples has also launched new incredibly fast Internet packages, ranging from 10 Mbps up to 100 Mbps. Residential customers can purchase additional upload for those households that have multiple users accessing the Internet at the same time or enjoy online gaming. Peoples is now also offering symmetrical Internet plans to meet the specific needs of their business customers.

“Peoples has prided ourselves for staying abreast of the latest technology.  When you live in a rural community it is even more important to have access to broadband.  Not only for your children’s sake for education, but also for businesses who need that connection in order to compete with the rest of the world.  Peoples has the network capable for our consumers to have the broadband connection that is needed.”
