Bryan’s Internet Is Blazing

Bryan Munic­i­pal Util­i­ties cable and Inter­net cus­tomers are enjoy­ing faster Inter­net and bet­ter

video stream­ing thanks to sev­eral upgrades imple­mented by the com­mu­ni­ca­tions depart­ment.

In the last 12 months, the depart­ment has installed more than $200,000 worth of new equip­ment and a new Eth­er­net

con­nec­tion to improve ser­vice to BMU com­mu­ni­ca­tions cus­tomers.

The upgrades were made with no change in the Inter­net rates for cus­tomers.

In 2013, the com­mu­ni­ca­tions depart­ment installed new cable and Inter­net rout­ing equip­ment in

the each of the four hub sites. They also installed new fiber optic trans­mis­sion equip­ment in the sys­tem. The new equip­ment allowed the depart­ment to reduce the num­ber of cus­tomer homes per fiber node. In addi­tion, the BMU com­mu­ni­ca­tions depart­ment installed equip­ment at the end of the year that greatly improved man­age­ment of Inter­net traf­fic.

In Feb­ru­ary of this year, BMU con­nected to a new Eth­er­net cir­cuit that increased the avail­able Inter­net band­width by 300 percent.
