New Haven for many years has had only one internet provider, and recently the company known as Fidelity has decided to upgrade its internet services from cable internet to fiber internet. This new service can handle quicker speeds, allowing for smooth video streaming, as well as faster download and upload speeds.
If you have noticed an overabundance of Fidelity vehicles roaming the streets of New Haven, it is because they have to upgrade the old cable technology to the new fiber technology. If you are already paying for Fidelity’s internet services, then you will be upgraded to fiber internet once they upgrade in your area of town.

Senior Bernabe Ribera shares his input on fiber internet as his house has already been upgraded. Here’s what he said, “I definitely don’t lag as much when I’m playing video games like I used to.”
Junior Brande Kubiak says, “I haven’t noticed a huge difference-- I pretty much just use internet for Netflix.”
John Walburn, Division VP for Fidelity Communications, says on the Fidelity website, “We are committed to delivering the latest technology to our customers, and we are excited to bring our enhanced fiber technologies that will increase speeds and improve network reliability.”
New Haven has needed an upgrade in the internet department for years, and it’s finally receiving one. This upgrade will not only help businesses in and around New Haven, but even the New Haven School District will benefit from fiber.
