Gigabit speed comes to South Carolina

Together, Nexton and Home Telecom are creating South Carolina’s first gigabit community, where every business, school and home can access the internet at speeds of one gigabit per second or faster. GigaFi makes Nexton a place of extraordinary advantages. And it’s available now.

What is GigaFi?
  • Next-generation video conferencing brings businesses closer to customers and makes online learning feel more like on-campus learning

  • Telemedicine lets patients interact more frequently and conveniently with their doctors

  • Long-distance collaboration can now happen in real time among far-flung team members

  • Super-fast cloud storage makes your data more secure and easier to manage

  • Content creation gets a huge boost with the capacity for multiple, simultaneous HD video streams

Delivered by Home Telecom, exclusively at Nexton.

For over a century, Home Telecom has been delivering innovative technologies and exceptional service to residential and enterprise customers throughout the Lowcountry. GigaFi is just the latest example of Home Telecom’s commitment to the people and the prosperity of South Carolina.


Just how fast is a gigabit?

It’s over 60 times faster than the average internet connection. But GigaFi is more than fast. It’s an open door to entirely new ways of doing business, getting an education, staying healthy and connecting to the world.

South Carolina's finest SC's Finest

In early 2013 the FCC issued the Gigabit City Challenge, encouraging every state in the country to have at least one community where gigabit broadband service is available to everyone. With GigaFi, Nexton becomes South Carolina’s first gigabit community, and South Carolina becomes the 21st state to meet the FCC challenge.
