On Thursday, January 25th at the Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours held at Hopkinsville Electric System (HES), EnergyNet, the internet division of HES, announced plans to increase fiber optic internet coverage to the residents of Hopkinsville.
A Gig City is a city in which the residents have access to an advanced high speed network capable of delivering speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps), which is 1000 Megabits per second (Mbps). Currently the average residential internet speeds in Hopkinsville range from 6Mbps to 25Mbps.
Some of the benefits of 1 Gigabit speed include lower latency for online video gaming, less buffering while streaming shows and movies from your favorite streaming providers as well as industry-leading reliability.
HES/EnergyNet will announce more information soon and would like to invite you to express your interest and sign up for future updates. To do so click here.
