(Prattsburgh, NY) – Empire Access is Expanding Fiber Optic Internet Service to the Binghamton Area

Empire Access is expanding their award-winning Fiber Optic Internet service to the Binghamton area and will launch services in late April of 2021. Empire will offer Fiber Optic Internet, Phone, and Security services in parts of Binghamton, Johnson City, Owego, Endwell, Endicott, and Vestal. Super high-speed Fiber Optic service will offer up to 10X faster connections than cable Internet. This new Fiber Optic service will be available to both residential and business customers.

“We’re thrilled to announce the expansion of our high-speed Fiber Optic Internet service in the Binghamton area! Fiber has become the gold standard and offers industry leading speed and reliability,” said Jim Baase, Chief Operating Officer for Empire Access. “Residents and businesses in the Binghamton area will now have access to the fastest, most reliable Internet in the region.”

Empire Fiber Optic service will offer the Binghamton area a unique opportunity and a clear technological advantage. Many areas comparable to the size of Binghamton currently do not have an option to access Fiber Optic Internet. Fiber Optic service is far more reliable and not prone to slow downs plagued by cable. Each customer has their own dedicated, non-blocking connection and is not affected by congestion and weather. Empire Access features very affordable plans priced below competitors’ offerings with Internet download speeds up to 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) for highly demanding needs. Gigabit Internet is perfect for video streaming, gaming, and downloading large files.

Along with Fiber Optic-based Internet service, Empire will also offer a complete array of communications and security services –

  • Home and business phone service – including various plans with business options including toll-free numbers, phone systems, voice mail and more
  • Security and home automation – such as 24/7 video monitoring and in-home or business-based automation, the ability to remotely manage security, lock and unlock doors, control appliances, adjust heating/cooling and more from a smartphone, tablet, or computer
  • Advanced business services – enterprise Wi-Fi, business email, audio and video conferencing, dark fiber and metro Ethernet

Empire Access is part of a local, family-owned and operated company; rooted from a telephone company founded in 1896. The organization has long been recognized for their knowledgeable, reliable, and responsive service. Live customer support is available 24/7/365.
