HIGH SPEED MEANS MORE OPPORTUNITIES
Technology has moved so fast it's almost hard to keep track. But think about where things were 20 years ago. "Seinfeld" and "ER" were the top shows on television, and if we didn't see them on Thursday nights, we didn't see them at all. A DVD player was the best way to watch a movie at home, and you could watch an entire movie in the time it took to download a picture of your kids from your e-mail.
Times have changed. Today, with streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, we can watch all of our favorite shows, movies, and events on our computers, tablets, phones, or - yes - even our TVs. We can watch our favorites whenever we want. And not only is downloading a picture of our children lightning fast, but we can talk to them on video in real time through FaceTime, Skype, or any other video chat service.
The best part? We can do all of this at the same time, with the proper internet connection speeds.
And there is nobody locally with higher connection speeds than UniTel. What does that mean? It means that with high speed connectivity from UniTel, your family can use multiple devices all at the same time with no interruptions. UniTel offers speeds up to 1GB. Don't believe us? Check it out for yourself and give us a call to upgrade your internet service today.
