Gigabit Internet Speeds to Arrive in Select Illinois Communities

Troy Mertz, manages an extensive portfolio of residential properties throughout Chicagoland.

Recently one such property, The Conservancy, announced it is opening a new model home sales center with homes to be built by NVR Ryan Homes. The Village of Gilberts has granted iFiber Networks a license to construct and deliver 1-gigabit fiber Internet to all homes within the Conservancy. The new Gigibit Gilberts Fiber Network will deliver bandwidth speeds approximately 100 times faster than basic high-speed broadband, thereby providing residents in the Conservancy with an unprecedented level of connectivity. Select U.S. Cities have also rolled out similar programs, primarily through the Google Fiber network. The network is part of the Village of Gilberts initial efforts to accommodate rapidly evolving consumer technology and to attract more jobs. With the faster speeds, area residents will be able to stream in hi-definition while browsing the Web, businesses can work faster with available resources, and educational and municipal facilities can provide services that are more responsive.
