Comporium increases Internet speed for 61,000 customers

Comporium, the Rock Hill-based communications company, has upgraded its network, increasing its Internet speeds for broadband connections over its cable TV infrastructure.

Comporium raised the upper limits of its three tiers of service, from 12 to 15 megabits per second, from 25 to 60 megabits per second and from 50 to 100 megabits per second.

Comporium customers will need to “reboot” their modem to get the increased connection speeds, said Matt Dosch, executive vice president of operations and external affairs. Rebooting is a simple processing of unplugging and then plugging in the modem’s power cord.

The increases affects nearly 61,000 customers in the company’s service areas surrounding Rock Hill, Fort Mill and Lancaster.

The changes does not affect monthly rates.

“We’re not done, by any means,” Dosch said. “We’re already working on our next network upgrade plan, which will allow us to boost the speeds even further, where possible.”
