Vyve Broadband upgraded, investing
in infrastructure and products in the hopes of providing more state-of-the-art and
reliable services to Fort Riley.
Vyve employees are offering
these services to often underserved and rural areas, such as Fort Riley.
“In a few months, our
offered services will be at or exceeding those in Los Angeles or New York,”
said Vin Zachariah, senior vice president, Vyve’s Residential Services.
Internet speeds are now
offered at 25, 50, and 105 Mbps, rather than the original 10 to 12 Mbps speed.
All existing customers get the speed upgrade free and can either pick up a new
modem or have it shipped to their home.
In the next few weeks, the new
Vyve landline phone service will be more reliable. The previous company didn’t
have the resources to invest in upgrades to their network, Vyve has invested more
than $100 million dollars in all their facilities, including those on Fort
Riley to create a network and services that rival anywhere in the country.
Vyve is currently improving
their television services, too. There are 140 HD channels of TV offered, but in
the next few months, all previous analog – non digital – TV services will be upgraded
to digital high-definition channels.
The improvements are
exclusive to the post, reaching almost everyone.
“We have invested in the infrastructure
that reaches from the main technological center’s office to the outlet in one’s
home living room,” he said.
Ultimately, these upgrades will
provide a better communication experience for all effected.
“Being connected is
important to the Soldiers. This improvement will better the communication between
service members and their families whether it’s Skype or email,” Zachariah
