WOW! internet Comes to North Ridgeville


NORTH RIDGEVILLE – Move over Spectrum and Windstream, there’s a new broadband provider in town, Wide Open West (WOW!). The Internet, cable and phone service is lighting up across North Ridgeville, recently announcing the availability of services, including 1 Gig fiber-to-the-neighborhood to both residents and businesses in North Ridgeville. WOW! is finalizing the infrastructure construction it began  in August of 2016, and expects service to be available to the entire community by late 2017.

So what does this all mean? North Ridgeville residents will have yet one more option available to them when it comes to choosing an Internet, cable and phone service, not to mention the opportunity for a really fast Internet connection. A 1 Gig Internet speed is 100 times faster than average. To put things into perspective, a Gigabit Internet connection can download 100 photos or songs in three seconds, and an HD movie in seven seconds.

“WOW! is always exploring the opportunity to bring better Internet to communities hungry for an alternative to their current provider,” said Greg Argetsinger, WOW! area vice president & general manager. “With WOW!’s leading residential and business offerings and our exceptional customer service, our mission is to provide better Internet at the best possible value.”

And although Argetsinger wouldn’t comment on what exactly those savings might be, he did share numbers for how many customers WOW! Will be able to serve.

“I can share that at the time of completion, our North Ridgeville edge out will pass approximately 13,000 homes and businesses.”

“WOW! works extremely hard with local governments and communities to make sure our presence is as undisruptive as possible. We constantly listen to community feedback and do our best to alleviate any concerns or problems quickly. We’re excited to be here in North Ridgeville, and we think the community is excited to have another option for their Internet, cable and phone needs,” said Argetsinger.
