Need more speed? Consider adding a second internet line

Do you need more bandwidth to power all the devices in your household, but an internet speed upgrade isn’t available at your address? If so, a second internet line might be the ideal solution for your household. It could allow you to dedicate one line to your work or school-from-home needs, for example, while you use the second internet line for everything else.

Ways to use a second line

  • Working or schooling from home — keep other devices connected on the separate line

  • Gaming – game without sharing bandwidth with other activities for the best performance

  • Streaming – dedicate a line for watching your favorite shows and movies anytime to reduce buffering

  • Roommates – get a separate line for each roommate so you don’t have to share bandwidth

To discuss your options or order a second internet line, contact a service representative. We are here to help!

Important note: A second internet line requires a technician installation and a separate modem, as well as some specific technical and account requirements, which our customer care representatives will review with you when you call.
