When was the last time you said to yourself or anyone else, “Faith in Humanity Restored?” In a world where it sometimes seems like businesses must choose between people or profit, it’s always nice to see a member of our telecommunications industry chart a different path.
That’s just what Vyve Broadband, an ISP serving largely non-urban, underserved communities in 16 states, is doing. The company is increasing its residential customers’ internet upload speeds at no added cost. In most cases, customers will see their speeds double, enabling faster file uploads, improved video conferencing and much more. This latest initiative is part of Vyve’s ongoing commitment to investing in the communities it serves.
How This Will Support Vyve Customers
According to Vyve, customers subscribing to any of the company’s internet plans as listed below will enjoy the following new upload speeds:

Though Vyve customers do not need to do anything to take advantage of these new, faster speeds, the company is inviting anyone with questions to visit vyvebroadband.com or call at 866-550-VYVE. Vyve offers speeds from 105 Mbps up to Vyve Gig.
“At Vyve, we believe that internet access is a key gateway to the building blocks of opportunity, but there is a difference between delivering on a set menu of unchanging services and going beyond to give our customers more. Faster upload speeds mean faster access to people, education, entertainment, government services and much more.” – Phil Spencer, Chief Executive Officer, Vyve Broadband.
Vyve and Quality of Life Go Hand in Hand
With a network spanning 16 states, Vyve is not only working to improve the online experiences of its existing customers, but is also reaching out to underserved, underprivileged communities. Recently, the company announced that it is now part of the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which is designed to assist low-income households in obtaining high-speed internet. Eligible households can now apply a credit of up to $30 per month ($75 on Tribal lands) to all of Vyve’s internet plans from 105 Mbps to Vyve Gig, where available.
The company’s track record of working tirelessly to bridge America’s digital divide has landed Phil Spencer, CEO, and Andy Kober, EVP and CFO, on Cablefax Magazine’s list of 100 top power players within the cable telecom industry. As Spencer has noted, the phrase “digital divide” will go away when “Vyve and our industry finish executing our rural build plans.” Through initiatives like participating in the ACP and upgrading its residential customers’ upload speeds for free, Vyve is well-positioned to make this vision a reality.
