Satview to offer faster internet

ELKO — Starting in mid-January, Satview Broadband Ltd. plans to provide faster internet service in Elko in response to customer demand.

“People want more bandwidth,” said Tariq Ahmad, Satview president. “A lot of people are streaming now instead of having cable TV.”

A field equipment upgrade underway is expected to allow for download speeds of 100 megabytes and upload speeds of 30 megabytes.

Satview prices for the high-speed internet will start at $149.99, and the company offers bundles that include combinations of internet, cable and telephone services for various prices. Basic residential internet (12 megabytes download) starts at $49.99.

Once the infrastructure upgrade is complete, the field equipment should last for about 20 years and need only updates to equipment in central locations, Ahmad said.

The 14-year-old Reno-based cable company has been serving Elko and part of Spring Creek since 2010 and began offering internet service to the area about three years ago.

Satview also provides video, internet and telephone services in Battle Mountain, Carlin, Elko, Jackpot, Wells and Topaz Lake, as well as limited services in Colorado.

Ahmad said the company is looking into the logistics of extending high-speed internet service farther into Spring Creek.
