Seeking to accommodate its users’ need for speed, California telco GTC Telecom, Inc. Friday began
offering T1 wireless Internet service.
The T1 wireless service is a dedicated high-speed network designed for
businesses. Speeds for the T1 service will start from
384kilobytes-per-second, as opposed to a maximum dial-up connection of 56Kbps.
Pricing was not disclosed.
Mark Fleming, GTC Telecom’s executive vice president, explained that the
wireless service is modeled after Intersky, offered by PSINet Inc.. Friday’s announcement is part
of a strategy to enhance its overall Internet offerings. GTC also provides
dial-up access, Web hosting and development.
“We have been able to offer our customers a full service long distance
package and it is important to us to continue to expand our Internet
services as well,” he said. “Customers can now take advantage of an
inexpensive, high speed Internet access option offered by our company.”
