Hill Country Telephone Cooperative (HCTC) recently released the fiber network in the Hunt exchange for service to customers. By upgrading the old copper network to new, state-of-the-art fiber technology, customers can now achieve symmetrical speeds up to a Gigabit! It is a whole lot faster than DSL. While HCTC has worked hard to construct the new network to as many customers as possible, some areas of the Hunt exchange have not been built yet. Please call the business office at 830-367-5333 to see if you are eligible to upgrade to the new fiber network. We have new high speed internet and phone bundles for you to consider if you are looking for faster internet speeds.
Hill Country Telephone Cooperative (HCTC) announces that the fiber network is ready to serve customers in most areas within the city limits of Comfort, Texas. Several years ago, HCTC started a construction project that involved hanging new fiber-optic cable on poles throughout most areas of town. This new state-of-the-art fiber technology enables customers to achieve much higher broadband speeds than the DSL technology that has been used for the past 15-20 years.
HCTC is contacting businesses in Comfort to offer them the opportunity to upgrade to this exciting new technology. If you have not been contacted, feel free to call the business sales team at (830) 315-5333 so we can discuss your needs with you.
