Blink can handle up to 5 simultaneous HD signals into the home. Gamers will love the extremely high speed both up and down. Businesses will have a speed and data capacity advantage few rural communities offer today.
Barbourville's fiber optic network provides greater reliability than traditional copper-based Internet service. The data capacity of Barbourville's fiber-optic lines and the lack of interference (a common issue on standard copper-based lines) makes the light-driven data technology perfect for delivering blistering gigabit speeds.
