Will Helmly, President and Chief Operating Officer with Home Telecom, said the demand for technology pushed the increased speed.

Their wireless home networking, called MyWiFi, will be launched simultaneously. MyWiFi will allow wireless enabled devices to connect to the high speed Internet wirelessly.
