SUBMITTED CONTENT – It’s a great feeling knowing you’re supporting a local business. But are there benefits beyond boosting your community’s economy? InfoWest, Southern Utah’s original internet service provider since 1994, knows there’s no price for the connection you get from a local company.
From the early days of dial-up to the future of fiber, InfoWest has evolved, adapted and stayed on the cutting edge of internet technology. The company now proudly employs more than 100 Southern Utah residents, which means it’s big enough to offer the resources of a local corporation, but small enough to take care of every customer.
“InfoWest is your local ISP,“One of the things we’re most proud of is our award-winning customer support, which continues our tradition of providing the highest Internet experience in Southern Utah,” said Josh Kaneverski, Director of Marketing.
What to look for in an Internet service provider?
When shopping for internet service, check the download and upload speeds each plan offers. InfoWest offers symmetrical upload and download speeds, allowing customers to upload important files to the cloud just as they can stream their favorite movies.
The only thing more frustrating and inconvenient than an internet outage is the added stress of a poor support team. The best ISP for your home or business will have efficient customer service and a fast, reliable connection at gigabit speeds. InfoWest offers 24/7 technical support via a local phone number from people who live and work in their community.
Kaneverski said gigabit speeds are a game-changer in today’s world. InfoWest technicians are trained to identify each customer’s Internet usage priorities and help them get the most out of their services, whether it’s streaming, gaming, studying, working remotely or building a business.
What are the benefits of a local ISP?
In addition to creating jobs in Southern Utah, InfoWest also gives back to the community in countless ways. The company has donated backpacks to children in need throughout Southern Utah and the Moapa Valley and was named “Business of the Year” by Root for Kids. Many employees serve on local nonprofit boards and are involved in meeting planning for great events around town.
InfoWest also inspires the next generation of professionals through guest lectures at Utah Tech University and Dixie Technical College, as well as sponsorship of robotics competitions, code camp and STEAM camp.
“If a provider cares about their community, that means they’ll care about you,” Kaneversky said.
What kind of connection do I need?
More people and devices are surfing the web today than ever before, and they all have different connectivity needs. For many customers, it’s all about speed. Some prioritize reliability and network uptime, while others still focus on quick and easy access to technical support.
Choosing the internet connection that best suits your life is key to keeping up with this fast-paced modern world. Faster Internet improves quality of life, makes working from home easier and has been shown to increase home values, Kaneversky said.
The internet provider of choice for many local businesses and events, InfoWest brings high-speed connectivity, including fiber and FiberWave, to communities in southern Utah. The company also offers VoIP internet-based phone service home and business alarm systems.
How can I finalize my decision?
InfoWest offers connectivity you can trust for all your devices. The company’s business and residential internet services including high-speed wireless internet, fiber and FiberWave faster than before with no data caps, bandwidth metering and hidden fees.
So what’s next for InfoWest? The possibilities are endless, Kaneverski said. The company invests heavily in its network to ensure it stays at the forefront of the ever-changing technology landscape while providing the best speed and reliability available.
“The future has never been so bright,” he added. “Not only is InfoWest bringing FiberWave to Southern Utah, but we’re also building fiber lines to our hometown. This dual-band approach gives us more reliability and gives internet users the choices they want.”
