In 2003, WIV Group of Companies introduced its Express High Speed Internet brand. Providing fast and reliable service to over half of the web-connected homes and businesses on Providenciales, it is now the first choice for high-speed internet on the island.
Express meets the needs of the business community, whether through home cable modem service at multi-megabit speeds or dedicated fibre optic access to a resort or company. Many of the nation's banks, five-star resorts, insurance, retail and construction companies depend on Express for their internet connections.
In early 2009, Express engineers completed the installation and activation of the brand's own private fibre network. This links the Express data centre with the international submarine cable landing station at North West Point, ensuring the highest possible speeds and reliability for customers.
When considering the price for Internet access, many wonder if paying such a price is truly worth it. If you're looking at Internet providers and still unsure if DSL, Cable or Satellite access is right for you, ask yourself the following:
Time is money! And using faster Internet access will save you more than enough of your time to justify its cost.
- Is my dial up service fast enough to access streaming video & music?
- Could I use the Internet more if web pages and downloads moved at faster speeds?
- Do I have to free up a phone line in order to connect to the web?
- How long does it take to receive digital photos & large email attachments?
- Could I work from home if I had a faster connection to my information?
