Socket recently participated in an international fiber to the home conference in Anaheim, CA, with the purpose of continuing to bring fiber Internet to Missouri that operates on the leading edge of fiber Internet technology.

Socket is investing substantial time and resources toward improving its DSL services through the use of new technology and equipment. While many in the telecommunications industry are trumpeting the death of copper for delivering high-speed Internet, Socket continues to find ways to meet its customers’ needs where copper is the most cost effective way to provide service. Known as VDSL, for “Very High Bit Rate DSL,” the upgraded service enables Socket to offer improved connection speeds to businesses and homes.
