1 Gb/s is not the limit!
In late 2011, the Penkiu Kontinentu Komunikaciju Centras Company (which, just like BS/2, is part of Penki Kontinentai, one of Lithuania’s most advanced companies) prepared the entire technical basis, and in early January 2012 announced that it offered its customers a record-high Internet speed, 1 Gbps.
Having been designing a fiber-optic network Skynet based on FTTH (Fiber to the Home) technology since 1998, JSC Penkiu Kontinentu Komunikaciju Centras has always been the first one to offer its users the highest internet speed. Following New Year’s Day, the company’s customers have received goods news. Having prepared a full technical base at the end of the year 2011, Penkiu Kontinentu Komunikaciju Centras at the start of January 2012, announced offering super-fast internet to its customers.
According to Vladimiras Kiseliovas, the deputy head of the company’s Network Operations Centre Department, this, by far, record internet speed has been achieved not only thanks to the timely selection of top-quality equipment by the company but also professional use of this equipment.
“When developing and upgrading the Skynet network, we select cutting edge and reliable equipment from our long-term partner Cisco Systems allowing us to ensure quality services and offer increasingly high internet speed. And to “receive” such speed, it is sufficient to have a gigabyte network card and a computer not older than two to three years,” the company’s representative said.
The first customers to have tried the 1 Gb/s internet speed at the very start of this year have already experienced, acknowledged, and positively evaluated the new Skynet capabilities. However, according to Tomas Okmanas, the head of the Network Operations Centre Department, it is the internet speed and quality services that are important to ensure.
“Fast and high-quality internet is a must-have for modern people. It helps you get loads of information from different formats and freely use it on various devices to access the internet. For example, if you use 100 Mb/s internet, you may download a 10 GB file in 13 minutes, and if you have 1 Gb/s speed, you can do it in 1 minute. Such convenience for Skynet subscribers is ensured by cutting-edge fiber-optic technology, constantly modernized network, experienced specialists, and network monitoring and maintenance performed around the clock,” T. Okmanas said.
The companies comprising the Penki Kontinentai Group constantly offer their customers various services based on the newest technologies, ranging from the fiber-optic Internet and IPTV to outsourcing services for the banking sector and the retail sector. BS/2’s specialists are confident that the Internet speed of 1Gbps will allow offering even more attractive services.
