Joining Chattanooga in the internet connectivity race, Dalton Utilities has become the first municipal electric utility in Georgia to offer community-wide access to GigLink, a residential Gigabit internet service.

“Dalton Utilities is dedicated to offering residents the advantages of such advanced technology,” said Tom Bundros, CEO of Dalton Utilities.

“With the debut of GIGLink, we are delivering some of the fastest internet speeds in the world to our residents. A Gig is exponentially faster than traditional offerings. With all that data, a million bits per second — you can do everything you already do online, but a lot more and a lot faster.”

With more need for fast, reliable and inexpensive connectivity, the need for more bandwidth grows. Streaming video, people working from home and general internet usage increase the demand.

GigLink is described as a residential gigabit internet service, with residential service is $79.95 per month.

Residents can sign up for the new GIGLink service beginning today by calling 706.529.1313 or visiting Dalton Utilities' website.
