Tachus, a high-speed, 100% fiber optic internet provider, is expanding its market to Atascocita.

The internet provider is currently available or building infrastructure in Atascocita, Conroe, Kingwood, Oak Ridge North and The Woodlands.

According to Carter Old, Tachus president and chief financial officer, the infrastructure build-out for the Atascocita area is set to begin in September and should take roughly 12-15 months to complete. With the build-out, Old said Tachus will be investing more than $25 million in the Atascocita region.

Old noted Tachus differs from many other internet providers because it uses 100% fiber optic cables, which he said will not degrade over time. He also noted the network's infrastructure is built entirely underground, giving it added protection.

“It effectively is future-proof technology,” he said during a June 10 Atascocita BizCom presentation. "Unlike others forms of communications technology, we don’t degrade.”

Additionally, Old noted Tachus customers will not experience connection slowdowns during peak hours and that the provider does not place a cap on data usage.

“It’s like all-you-can-drink internet,” he said.
