Fidelity Communications announced this week that Maumelle-area internet customers will receive a free speed upgrade – up to five times faster than their existing speeds.
The offer is for those already getting the company’s Gig internet service and the speeds will go from 15 Mbps (megabytes per second) to 50 Mbps.

Among other things, 50 Mbps allows for 4K video streaming and multiple devices can be on at the same time.
“This upgrade is part of our ongoing commitment to investing in the communities we serve,” said Fidelity General Manager Sam McGill in a release. “We will continue to stay ahead of customer demand by tapping into our fiber-powered network to provide our communities with the speeds they need to keep their multi-device homes connected to what matters most – whether that is family and friends, work, school or entertainment.”
The upgrade will be automatic, McGill said, as modems will be automatically rebooted, or, he added, customers can reboot their modems manually, to get the higher speeds.
