Broadband is, quite simply, high-speed internet access. Broadband can be delivered over multiple technologies, including fiber, cable, and fixed wireless. The official Federal Communications Commission (FCC) definition of broadband is a minimum of 25 Mbps (megabits per second) download and 3 Mbps upload.
High-speed internet has revolutionized how we use technology in our homes and businesses. Imagine chatting with your doctors and teachers via video conference or collaborating on a work or school project with people across the country in real time. Faster speeds mean more possibilities for our residents, local businesses, and communities.
United currently offers internet speeds to residential customers from 25 Mbps up to 1 Gbps (1 Gig), starting as low as $65/month (plus applicable fees and taxes). Check united.net for the latest offers and promotions.
