Charter Business Launches Faster Internet Services

July 21, 2010

Charter Business is introducing even faster Internet speeds. Extreme Power, with speeds up to 75 Mbps, and Mega Power, with up to 40 Mbps speeds, are now available to businesses in nine states served by Charter. The Extreme Power and Mega Power services include enhanced desktop security as well as custom web and e-mail hosting at no additional cost.

Charter Business continues to offer Basic Power, Super Power and Turbo Power Internet speeds for new and existing customers. Recognizing that many businesses also need network connectivity across multiple locations, Charter Business offers the added flexibility of Charter Business Ethernet to seamlessly and cost-effectively connect multiple offices. Charter Business also offers Optical Ethernet, a private networking service with speeds from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps, and Fiber Internet services, which offer dedicated Internet access from 5 Mbps to 1 Gbps+.

"Not only are we delivering fast speeds to help businesses keep pace with a world that seems to be moving faster all the time, we are providing businesses with the tools they need to serve their customers as efficiently and effectively as possible," said Jim McGann, Senior Vice President of Charter Business. "Extreme Power and Mega Power provide definite advantages for businesses that are transferring large files, running hosted software applications, hosting mail or web servers, downloading large e-mails, streaming video, conducting video conferences or handling other high-bandwidth needs."

Internet speeds currently available through Charter Business are vastly superior to DSL. Charter Business’ Internet services bundled with phone and TV services enable maximum savings and value for the unique needs of businesses and enterprises of all sizes.

Extreme Power and Mega Power are currently available to communities served by Charter in California, Connecticut, Georgia, Nebraska, Nevada, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri and Tennessee. Charter will continue to launch the new speeds in additional markets across its footprint.
