DANSVILLE – Residents of Dansville will soon have another choice for high speed internet service.

On Sept. 1, Empire Access announced it is bringing state of the art fiber optic internet, television, phone and security services to the village of Dansville.

“We got Frontier, we got Spectrum and more competition is always better,” said Mayor Peter Vogt. “I think it is a great idea and we are glad to see another option for the community.”

This new fiber service is being offered to both residential and business customers. Empire Access says it will offer up to 10 times faster connections than cable internet services.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to provide lightning fast fiber optic internet to residential and business customers in Dansville,” said Empire Access COO Jim Baase. “Fiber is the new standard in communications because it utilizes light waves instead of electrical signal to deliver service.”
