PHOENIX, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cable ONE, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Washington Post Company, was recently ranked by PC Magazine as one of the top 10 fastest internet Service Providers (ISP) in the nation.
PC Magazine, the leader for rigorous, labs-based comparative reviews of computing, consumer electronics, business technology, and internet products, tested ISPs from January 2012 through September 2012, via Speedtest.net - the standard for testing internet connection speed around the globe. Results of the test placed Cable ONE in the top 10, ranking significantly higher than competitors AT&T and CenturyLink.
Cable ONE offers business and residential customers 50Mbps high speed internet service - ideal for streaming multiple movies or videos at the same time, offering more power for online games, and giving customers the ability to share photos in the blink of an eye.
Cable ONE senior vice president Jerry McKenna said that the company launched their 50 Mbps internet in mid-2011, and nearly 43 percent of Cable ONE customers have already subscribed to the service.
"Cable ONE is honored to be recognized by PC Magazine as one of the fastest internet providers in the country," McKenna said. "We know that internet speed is crucial to the daily activities of our residential and business customers, and they recognize the value that we offer."
