IInternet speeds will depend on the property, the surrounding infrastructure, and delivery method. Our service offerings start at 30mbps and go up to 100mbps. This is dedicated fiber and not broadband so the performance is superior.

DSI Customer Contracts
DSI contracts are straight forward and easy to understand without hidden fees. Contracts for bulk or exclusive services may vary in length depending on the agreed terms with the property.
Internet service is required if you choose to opt into the DSI television package. You do not have to purchase DSI TV if you purchase DSI Internet.
What type of equipment does DSI Use?
All of DSI’s services are fed by fiber optic cable. We use Ubiquity products as for our communications architecture and delivery.
What is a streaming device and why do I need one?
DSI uses a Roku streaming device to deliver our IP Television service – DSI Television to the television set. It serves a similar purpose as a set top box that a cable company uses, but it is less bulky, less visible, and does not require your TV to be located near a cable jack. The streaming device delivers the capability to download the DSI Television application (and any other apps) to your television wirelessly. If you have a “smart TV” your streaming capabilities are built into the set and you would not need an additional streaming device.
When will my service be restored?
Over 90% of customer issues are resolved remotely. Single customer outages will be resolved within 48 hours. Fiber issues that result in mass outage will be responded to within a couple hours.
