Westman Communications Group to Increase Internet Speeds


On February 1, 2020, Westman Communications Group will be increasing the
Internet speeds in all their packages for customers across the region. This
upgrade comes on the heels of a significant infrastructure upgrade made by
Westman to move to DOCSIS 3.1 technology, which is designed to enable
faster speeds and increased network reliability

Westman’s XSTREAM Internet packages, notably titled to reflect the
download speed available in each package, are available in all the
communities they serve. Their base package, XSTREAM 12, will become
XSTREAM15, with download speeds increasing to 15MBps. Comparable
increases will also be applied to all of their other packages, including
XSTREAM 40, which will become XSTREAM 50, up to their XSTREAM 150
package, which will become XSTREAM 160 with 160 MBps download speeds.
Upload speeds will also see an improvement.

“Westman is always looking for new ways to improve our customer
experience,” said Courtney Baxter, Manager of Marketing at Westman
Communications Group. “We understand that the need for more speed and
increased reliability is growing across the Westman region, and our goal is to
be proactively ahead of that growth. This means providing the best Internet
experience for our members on the packages they already subscribe to, while
also adding new packages that offer even higher speeds”.

Coming soon, Westman will also be adding a new Internet package to their
lineup, XSTREAM 300, with 300 MBps download and 25 MBps upload speeds,
making Westman’s speed packages the fastest available to all residents in
Brandon and the other communities their services are available in.

“Our customers will automatically receive the speed boost during an
overnight upgrade on January 31, adds Baxter. “By Saturday morning, they
will be able to enjoy their new speeds.
