Shentel Introduces High-Speed Internet to Marlinton

Posted 24 February 2011 12:00 AM by Shentel

Subscribers Now Receive Broadband Internet Service at up to 3Mbit/sec

Edinburg, Va. – Feb. 24, 2011 – Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel) (NASDAQ: SHEN), an established provider of telephone, Internet and cable television services, announced that it has brought high-speed Internet service to subscribers in Marlinton, W.Va., Pocahontas County, for the first time.

Now, Shentel customers in Marlinton can access the Internet at speeds up to 3Mbit/sec through Shentel’s cable network. Previously, users primarily accessed the Internet via dial-up services, which is significantly slower than a cable connection.

The introduction of Shentel’s broadband Internet service is the telecommunications company’s second improvement recently brought to Marlinton customers. Previously, Shentel unveiled new options and features to cable television subscribers, which included new channels and digital video recorder (DVR) capabilities. With both Shentel cable television and Internet available, Marlinton residents can now opt for Shentel’s “Better Bundles,” allowing them to combine the two services into one affordable, convenient bill.

Christopher Kyle, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Shentel, said, “It is our pleasure to bring our Marlinton customers high-speed Internet access for the first time. Much faster than a dial-up connection, high-speed internet makes it more convenient for subscribers in Marlinton to surf the web, stream videos, send and receive email, and download and upload files.”
