MetroCast Boosts Pocono Raceway Speeds to 1 Gig06.04.15
MetroCast Business Services has installed and activated a high-capacity fiber circuit at the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond that delivers data transport speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second.
MetroCast was chosen to implement the fiber solution by APXnet, a Maine-based communications company that provides at-track network support for major racing events nationwide.
The 1 Gig circuit is a high-capacity, fiber optic solution that provides dedicated Internet access with speeds that are significantly faster than other technologies available in the market, including DSL and T-1 lines. The circuit also delivers symmetrical speeds, which provides uniform speeds whether data is being transmitted downstream or upstream.
In addition to supporting data needs at the facility, the fiber circuit will provide wireless Internet access for ticketholders at the raceway.
“We are pleased to partner with MetroCast Business Services to provide this advanced network solution for the Pocono Raceway,” said APXnet President and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey S. Wood. “The new fiber-optic circuit provides the speed, reliability and scalability that will support critical functions and demanding data needs at these high-profile events.”
MetroCast’s Vice President of Advanced Services, Josh Barstow, said, “As a local provider with market-leading Internet speeds, we are committed to bringing leading-edge technology to bear on communications needs of the businesses in our service areas.”
