The Fidelity Business Sales team recently helped the City of Atlanta, TX get more Internet bandwidth it needed to support its new phone system.
Working in conjunction with IT Network Specialists of Texarkana, AR on the phone side, Fidelity ran fiber optic cable to Atlanta City Hall, Atlanta Police Department, Fire Department and the Atlanta Public Library, markedly increasing download and upload speeds at each location.
City Hall now has 20 Megabits per second (MBPS) download and upload speeds on the fiber network, sharing the connection with the nearby police department. The library and fire department each have 30 MBPS download and 10 MBPS upload speeds.
A side benefit of the project is a faster, stronger wireless network at the library, a popular wireless Internet hotspot for library visitors.
“The priority was replacing the phone system,” said City Manager David Cockrell. “But our previous provider couldn’t give us adequate bandwidth to go to a Voice Over IP phone system. Fidelity could, and we’re also pleased with the speed and volume of their internet in all the buildings.”
He added, “It’s working great and we’re saving a tremendous amount of money on our long distance bill. Due to Fidelity providing the bandwidth, our new phone system will have paid for itself in a couple of years.”
