MCTV now offers some of the newest fiber-to-the-home internet technology in the industry with Excellerate. Stream smoother, game harder and surf faster with Excellerate’s symmetrical download and upload speeds of 100 Mbps.
What is Excellerate?Excellerate is MCTV’s newest service that is being rolled out across our service area. It is a fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) network that will allow us to offer symmetrical Internet speeds. MCTV is one of the first in the area and industry to deploy this technology.
Why is Excellerate the next best thing?The construction method and technology that Excellerate uses is the latest technology available today. It delivers a fiber optic connection directly from our headend to your home so we can offer faster Internet speeds. And, as Internet usage and demands increase, we can more easily upgrade this technology to offer faster speeds.
What will I be able to do with Excellerate?Excellerate services provide symmetrical upload and download speeds for Internet. Excellerate will offer 100 Mbps download and upload speeds. This is especially important if your family uses multiple devices for multiple high-usage activities like streaming, gaming and video chatting. Excellerate lets you do all these things, at the same time, without sacrificing performance.
What’s different about Excellerate from my current MCTV services?Excellerate is built using a fiber-to-the-home construction. Fiber-to-the-home is exactly as it sounds. A fiber optic connection is delivered directly to your home from our headend. Our current system is a fiber-to-the-node construction. This type of system delivers services over fiber to a point in your neighborhood. From there, it is sent to your home over a coaxial cable. There are many benefits to a fiber-to-the-home system, the biggest of which is the ability to offer aster, symmetrical (same upload and download) Internet speeds.
When can I get Excellerate?Excellerate will be available on a rolling basis as construction is completed in each neighborhood. The construction of Excellerate will take time and construction will be completed over the next few years across our entire service area. Given the scope of the project, we cannot give exact dates for when it will be available in a specific neighborhood.
