Comporium is extending its Zipstream gigabit services to five Rock Hill business parks.
Matt Dosch, executive vice president, customer operations and external affairs for Comporium, said, “When we announced the launch of Zipstream earlier this year for the city of Rock Hill’s Knowledge Park, we were also putting our plans in place to expand into the surrounding business clusters where fiber optics facilities existed. Businesses that need to transmit very large data files will see reductions in downloading and uploading times, which is particularly helpful for services related to website and software development and 3-D printing.”
The Waterford Business Park, Airport Industrial Park, Rock Hill Industrial, Riverwalk Business Park, and Southcross Corporate Center will have access to Zipstream. These business parks are home to about 50 manufacturers, distribution centers and other businesses.
Comporium’s Zipstream is almost 85 times faster than the company’s standard Internet service. The cost for a Zipstream business account is $299 per month.
Comporium said it will take several months to bring Zipstream to all the parks.
