Salisbury to have fastest internet in Maryland

By August of 2018 Salisbury, Md will be the city with the fastest internet in the entire state.

During that process though fiber optic cable will be installed, as well as hook ups for all the downtown businesses on those streets.

The hookups will also be given to residential buildings on those streets allowing for residents to connect to the high speed internet as well.

Once the fiber goes online Salisbury will have the fastest internet among cities in Maryland, with the fiber cabling delivering 1 gigabyte per second.

Fiber isn't any faster than coax there's just less that can go wrong.

JT how about looking into this a little more. Sounds like they are saying businesses will come for fast internet. and the equipment sounds expensive if they have to give you 10% tax incentives over 10 years

This is a joke. So is Comcast!

This isn't true. Several companies over 10 gigabit service in Baltimore. (including Comcast and Balitmore Fiber)

(even with your copied typo of "gigabyte per second" would only be 8 gigabit, but I'm sure it's supposed to say gigabit as the equipment is either 1 gigabit or 10 gigabit not 8 gigabyte/1 gigabyte")

I mean use some common sense here... if the fiber is coming from the western shore, across the bay bridge, then down rt. 50, obviously it's not as fast as it started across the bridge, we'd have to get the service from someone with a faster pipeline.

2018 is almost 2 years away -I don't count my chickens before they hatch. People have been promised a lot in the past 7 1/2 years. Can't see any good changes our government has accomplished for our Nation during that time. IMO Obama have created a mighty poor legacy for himself and his cronies..

Could be coming from Wilmington. Not a lot of speed loss in fiber.

Hackers will descend on our fair city to hack even faster than ever.
