Madison Academy in Huntsville, AL, has upgraded its WOW! Business fiber-based dedicated Internet access service from 200 Mbps to 1 Gbps.

In addition to 1 Gbps Internet service, WOW! Business provides Ethernet, PRI voice and video services to Madison Academy, originally on coaxial cable connections. WOW! Business built a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) solution connecting two campus locations and the Corral, a multipurpose student service center. Madison Academy and WOW! Business are collaborating to build a fiber connection to another building, enabling the school to have three wide-area network (WAN) sites.

"Last summer we upgraded to 200 Mbps Internet service with WOW! Business, but recently have been peaking at that level and needed to increase our bandwidth to 1 Gbps now to prepare for the next school year and beyond," said Brian Tissue, director of technology and network infrastructure for Madison Academy. "We're adding two more wings to our campus next year, which made it crucial to scale our WAN infrastructure to accommodate our growth and to ensure that our students, faculty and administrative staff have the Internet speed they need to accommodate our existing and future requirements."

WOW! Business' current Huntsville network is designed to provide 10 Gbps dedicated Internet access to businesses and government organizations.
