Local telecommunications company, GTT is assuring its customers that improved internet and data service is on its way.
In a statement on Tuesday, the company said work is “well underway to apply the latest generation of networking technologies and equipment to its broadband network, investments that are expected to provide faster speeds, more capacity and enhanced network reliability”.
GTT is partnering with General Datatech (GDT), a leading systems integrator and tier 1 Cisco partner, to upgrade systems and architecture to a level consistent with the best practices of leading global service providers around the world.
The company said the investments will not only provide for faster and better services today, but will also allow GTT to easily manage aggressive traffic growth scenarios for many years to come.
GDT is an award-winning technology integration partner with expertise in the delivery of enterprise network, collaboration, mobility and data center technologies to service providers, large enterprises, and businesses of all sizes.
GTT’s broadband network provides access to the Internet for more than 50,000 customers including residences, business, health care providers, schools and government agencies across the country.
The company believes that the system upgrade, coupled with its substantial undersea capacity, will facilitate a substantial improvement in broadband and data connectivity services through provision of faster speeds and more secure and reliable connections.
The project for upgrading the network is expected to be completed by third quarter 2017. During this time some customers may experience intermittent outages.
Earlier this year, the company’s CEO promised that faster and more reliable internet and data services will begin rolling out by the end of June.
Over the past weeks, a number of customers have been complaining about slower internet services. Company officials say technicians have been working around the clock to correct the issues.
