MetroCast Business Services launches new, faster Internet speeds

For the Monroe Journal
MetroCast Business Services (MBS) has announced new faster speeds for its modem-based Internet services. With the latest boost in speed, MBS Professional customers now receive speeds up to 40 Mbps x 3 Mbps.
“Our latest speed enhancement will ensure that business-class customers receive the bandwidth and reliability they need to serve their customers effectively, while staying ahead of the competition,” said senior director of business services JC Calhoun.
The MetroCast Professional package includes up to 30 email accounts, seven  static IP addresses, 100 MB of mail space and 40 MB of web space, making it ideal for larger businesses with multiple employees, where the quick and secure transport of large files is essential, and for the streaming of audio and video.
In addition to its Business Professional service, MetroCast Business Services offers three additional levels of modem-based Business-Class Internet. These also have new, faster speeds. While all business-class Internet customers will receive a speed boost, the monthly rates for the services will remain unchanged, with rates as low as $59.95 a month.
In addition to its modem-based Internet services, MBS offers a suite of scalable Business Class Ethernet solutions, including Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), Metro Ethernet Private Line and Lan (Point-to-Point and Point-to-MultiPoint, with symmetrical data transmissions up to 1 Gbps) and Digital Business Trunking.
