Searcy to be upgraded to a Gig City

White County Cable TV is upgrading its network and distribution systems with a goal of launching true Gig speeds to all of the homes and businesses in its service area. Gig-a-bit service will first become available early next year in Searcy and then will be expanding to all of the towns in the service area by the end of 2022. The Gig-a-bit service will be available to every resident in Searcy, Judsonia, Kensett, Higginson and Bald Knob when the project is completed.

The total cost of this effort will exceed $14 million dollars and is just the latest investment by White County Cable TV, which has been the premier provider for the Searcy and surrounding communities for the past 44 years.

“These are exciting times for the White County area. There are not many cities or towns in America that offer a Gig service to all their residents, and we are working to provide it throughout all of our 350 plus miles of plant.” said Tony Allen, Area Manager of White County Cable TV. “We are proud to continue our 44 years of service to the community as the leading provider for internet, television, voice, and cloud services. “

As the system upgrade progresses, the speeds in each of the Cablelynx Broadband service packages will increase and the company will keep customers informed as those changes are made.

“This $14 million project adds to the company’s existing fiber-optic infrastructure and expands Cablelynx Broadband service to provide major growth opportunities for area businesses and gives them the competitive advantage that they want and need,” said Walter E. Hussman, Jr., Chairman of WEHCO Media, the parent company of White County Cable TV. “The residential community will also be given more options for their internet service to meet the growing demands of the work-from-home and the home-school requirements that are being placed on them.”

White County Cable TV has operated as a family-owned company since 1977 with core values of service, and community support, including immediate and quick response times to satisfy the needs of our neighbors.

The company’s support of the community is multi-faceted in that it provides prompt same-day response times, but also supports the communities when they need it the most. White County Cable TV is, and always will be, in the heart of the community. These are exciting times. Things are changing fast and White County Cable TV is ready as always to meet the needs of the community and is proud to be bringing Cablelynx Broadband Gig-a-bit service to its customers.
