Morris Broadband is kicking off 2020 with the introduction of gigabit internet service and speed increases for all existing residential internet subscribers in Henderson County.

Tony Carter, general manager of Morris Broadband based in Hendersonville, announced, “With the completion of our latest upgrade, we have increased our base internet service speed by more than 100 percent.”

“Our 10Mb service is now 25Mb with speeds increasing on all our residential internet tiers,” Carter added. “We also have launched a new gigabit tier. These speed increases were made with no change to our existing rates.”

Morris Broadband has invested more than $50 million in infrastructure improvements and geographic expansion since acquiring the broadband system in 2009.

These investments have continuously upgraded the system’s infrastructure ─ including fiber expansion, fiber nodes and main line cable improvements ─ to maintain quality high-speed internet service and to launch advanced products. In addition, the company has invested in providing services to unserved areas.

Carter concluded, “In today’s fast-paced world, we recognize the necessity of a strong, evolving broadband product for the businesses and citizens of Western North Carolina. It is our first priority.”
