Pre-register for LanCity High Speed Internet!

Lancaster city’s plan to offer residential internet service may have gotten off to a slow start, but it’s picking up speed. Make that super high-speed.

When first announced in February 2015 as part of an overall municipal broadband project to improve city services, city officials said the fiber-optic network would allow speeds of 300 megabits per second.

During an update to City Council on Tuesday, an official with installer MAW Communications Inc. said speeds up to 1 gibabits per second will be offered.

How fast is that?

Brian Kelly, MAW’s corporate strategist, said high-speed generally means download speeds of faster than 20 Mbps. Downloading a standard-definition movie at 20 Mbps would take nearly half an hour, but just 30 seconds at 1 Gbps, he said.

While home installation won’t begin until next year, residents can preregister at LanCityConnect.com.
