In our 122 years of business, DFT Communications and Netsync have always strived to bring the latest telecommunications technologies to our community. It is true that 2020 is hoping to prove to be another exciting year for us, not only with the continued completion of our mainline fiber construction but also with the ongoing installation of DFT Wireless transmitters in several locations and Managed Wi-Fi services for homes and businesses.

The expansion of our DFT Wireless internet service is yet another exciting opportunity to serve the residents of the surrounding areas. DFT Wireless is a long-range wireless technology that delivers higher internet speeds than satellite, cellular, and DSL, and is competitive with cable. What this means to people in these areas is that DFT Wireless delivers real high-speed Internet to your home at an affordable price with absolutely no data caps. DFT was recently awarded a POWER Grant meant to cover Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegheny Counties to provide economic revitalization and expand broadband services with the goal of getting as many people as possible hooked up, thus expanding their wireless footprint.

This expansion builds on DFT’s vision to “exceed customer expectations through extraordinary customer service with dedicated employees and the advancement of technology. We strive to become recognized as the region’s leading communications and broadband service provider.”

At DFT and Netsync, we take that pledge very seriously!

When a household suffers from internet speeds that are less than what they are paying for, many jump to the conclusion that the problem is with their internet provider, but this isn’t always the case. Too many devices, or a centrally located router, often can plague today’s Wi-Fi saturated home. This is where Netsync’s Managed Wi-Fi service comes in. With the latest innovations in Wi-Fi technology from our partner Calix, Netsync’s IT specialists can monitor the health of your Wi-Fi signal remotely.

Maybe some of your equipment isn’t communicating properly, or one of your devices is eating up your bandwidth, causing slower speeds for the rest of your home. With Managed Wi-Fi, our staff can see where the problem is in your connection and get you an immediate resolution. Managed Wi-Fi includes many other features that help customers get the most out of their high-speed internet and we are very excited about the possibilities of this new technology. You can learn more about Managed Wi-Fi at www.dftcommunications.com/residential-wifi.

DFT’s newest venture is The Broadband Experience Room located inside The Netsync Store at 38 Temple Street in Fredonia. Visitors are invited to come by and learn the difference products from DFT Communications and Netsync can make for their broadband experience. All are welcome to view live Internet speed tests, see the difference a managed router can make, demo streaming apps, smart home devices and more in this state-of-the-art technological exhibit and showroom. While we are currently closed due to the COVID19 Corona Virus pandemic, we are hoping residents will be sure to stop by when we are able to reopen our doors.

DFT wishes to say thank you to all of their customers and let each of you know how much your continued business is appreciated. If there is anything you need, please call and talk to one of our representatives or stop into the customer service location in downtown Fredonia.
