LPC Connect announced that it has raised internet speeds for all Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond high-speed Internet customers they serve throughout La Porte City, Mt. Auburn, and the surrounding rural areas. The boost in speed is expected to occur automatically by September 1, so customers will not need to do anything to enjoy the faster speed. Best of all, the increase comes at no additional charge for the company’s business and residential customers.
“As customer demands and technology evolve, we are constantly looking for ways to improve the online experience of our customers. Upgrading Internet speeds to our broadband customers gives them more speed for chatting, surfing, streaming, gaming, or downloading – all from a provider that supports the local community and believes that our customers deserve the best in their broadband service,” said Chris Hopp, LPC Connect’s general manager.
The number of devices connecting to the Internet by customers in their homes and businesses are increasing exponentially, based on the results of LPC Connect’s annual Customer Satisfaction Survey. LPC Connect surveyed their consumers and 57% of the respondents own three or more Internet-connected devices in their household or business, and that number is expected to keep rising.
LPC Connect provides unlimited Internet plans, while many providers are choosing to meter broadband plans and imposing data caps on their Internet plans. This means their subscribers are being charged overage fees when their broadband usage goes over a certain limit.
“It’s our honor to serve rural Iowa with increased broadband speeds and contribute to the local economy. LPC Connect employees are the people you will likely run into at school sporting events, community celebrations, and donating their time to a variety of local charitable organizations. It’s important that while customers may not always be familiar with tomorrow’s technology, they will have a familiar hometown company such as LPC Connect to rely on,” said Hopp.
LPC Connect is locally owned and has been providing customers with telecommunications services for over 100 years. The company employs eight people locally and is guided by a five-person Board of Directors. For more details about LPC Connect, visit www.lpctel.com or call (319) 342-3369.
