Hill Country Telecommunications Seeks Community Input
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 • Posted July 26, 2013

Hill Country Telecommunications is seeking community feedback regarding the willingness to subscribe to a new Broadband Service provided by a state-of-the-art fiber optic network that we are considering building within the City of Mason.

We are asking for direct input before we commit to such an undertaking.

What we are considering is a Fiber-to-the-Home Network that is capable of not only being Best in Class today, but can be easily scaled to the increased capacity needs of tomorrow. It would propel the Citizens and Homes of the Mason Community into the forefront of modern communications, enabling the World at your fingertips.

For simplicity, we plan to initially offer only two Service Packages, one for Internet only and another for Internet plus phone. For the Broadband portion we envision 30 Mbps Downstream and 10 Mbps Upstream, with unlimited data consumption. This “blows away” comparisons to DSL and even most Cable Modem offerings. If the numbers don’t mean much, just think of it as a blazing fast Internet connection allowing email, Video (Netflix, HULU, Amazon, Others), Gaming, all the Internet has to offer, as much as is wanted with enough capacity for several simultaneous users in the home.

Please consider going to and answering some questions that will help with our analysis. Of critical importance is the physical home address, as it will help us prioritize our build-out should we decide to proceed. You will not be asked to make a firm commitment to subscribe. For more information please contact us directly at our local Hill Country office on Ft. McKavitt street or our main office at 1-800-292-5457.
