June 23, 2020


Socket is proud to announce the expansion of its fiber-optic broadband network in New Franklin to both residential homes and businesses.

“We’re very excited to expand our fiber network to the community,” said George Pfenenger, Socket CEO and co-owner. “We know businesses and residents in New Franklin are eager for fast, reliable internet. We believe our local service and support are a great fit.”

With speeds up to one gigabit per second, fiber-optic technology is the fastest, most reliable connection available. Its large bandwidth capacity is considered future-proof and will accommodate increased internet usage for decades to come. Here are some Socket Fiber internet facts:

• Capable of connecting dozens of devices at once, including streaming video and gaming

• Unaffected speeds during peak usage, unlike cable or DSL

• No data caps or throttling

• Supported by experienced local technicians and a friendly customer service team

• Future-proof technology – we are able to increase available speeds as technology evolves

• No contracts, hidden fees, or introductory pricing
