COLUMBUS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Golden Artist Colors recently announced that Frontier Communications (NYSE:FTR, news, filings) has provided the company with a new fiber solution for its data and voice services. Specifically, Frontier installed a 10 Mbps Ethernet Point-to-Point data connection over fiber, and a 20 Mbps Ethernet Internet access connection over fiber.
"We have provided the communications services for Golden Artist Colors since the company took its first order for paint, via a party phone line in 1980," said Claudia Maroney, General Manager, Frontier Communications. "Over the years, we worked with the team, listening to their needs, partnering with them to deliver communications services to best meet their requirements and help them grow."
Ethernet service provides a customizable, secure and reliable solution. This advanced high-capacity service provides GOLDEN with greater broadband speeds - up to 600 times faster than cable connections - and the flexibility to upgrade more quickly to a broader product spectrum as needed in the future. Frontier's Ethernet service addresses the increasing bandwidth needs of Golden Artist Colors as it expands its business with a second facility on Hale St. in Norwich, N.Y.
"Frontier is the perfect local partner to help us fully realize our desire for enhanced data and voice communication," said GOLDEN Operations Manager, Greg Sheldon. "The increased speed, capacity and flexibility give us more control over our data infrastructure and greater opportunities to reduce costs."
