We’re happy to announce that Northwoods Connect is now officially “multi-homed.”

This term shouldn’t sound familiar to most of you, but what it essentially means is that we’ve secured a second upstream link to a fiber connection. If one connection goes down, this second connection can seamlessly switch over and ensure a flawless user experience. 

Other ISP’s often have a single fiber connection, which means they also have a single “point-of-failure” where if that one connection goes down, their entire network goes with it. You may have heard of ISPs losing service when a backhoe cuts through their fiber optic cable. With our second upstream link, the chance of losing both fiber connections is nearly zero.

The best part, this upgrade was incorporated a few weeks ago without a pause or blip in service.
