Fidelity Upgrading 19K Low-Speed Customers to 50 Mbps

Sullivan, Missouri-based operator Fidelity Communications said it is upgrading the broadband speeds of around 19,000 customers to 50 Mbps at no additional charge.

These customers, spread across Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana, were previously experiencing speeds of between 1.5 Mbps to 25 Mbps.

Fidelity is calling this a “one-year initiative.”

“At the end of 2017, Fidelity saw the growing need for more bandwidth within the home for our current customers,” said the operator’s president, John Colbert, in a statement. “While these customers have had the opportunity to upgrade to speeds of 50 Mbps and above for several years now, we believe the proactive move for those who have not adopted the new speeds will ensure a superior experience to their ever-growing connected lives.”

Fidelity’s entry level 50 Mbps plan sells for $44.99 a month, with 100 Mbps going for $69.99 and 250 Mbps for $79.99.
