Ask anyone about surfing here in Hawaii and you’ll probably get some sort of answer containing “waves”, “breaks” and “boards”, with a “brah” and a shaka sign sprinkled in between.
But when you talk about surfing on the Internet, we Hawaiians – the geeky ones in particular – tend to get even more excited, especially when it comes to our speeds.
So when Oceanic Time Warner Cable launched a new tier of broadband Internet called Road Runner Extreme, you can bet our customers were “stoked”! With download speeds of up to 30 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5 Mbps, Road Runner Extreme takes Internet surfing to another level.
Here’s how one local techie uses Extreme in his day to day:
And we’re not done there! Hawaii has recently introduced another level called “Wideband” where you can expect up to 50 Mbps down and up to 5 Mbps up to start, with the potential to hit up to 150 Mbps and beyond!
Here’s Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s President Bob Barlow to tell us a little more.
So as you can see, we Hawaiians love our surfing, even if it doesn’t involve waves, breaks, or boards.
Surf’s up brah!
