BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- In our fast-paced, technology filled lives, nothing can be more frustrating than waiting for an Internet connection. It's something that some downtown Bangor business owners have been facing for some time. But that's all about to change.
In the next few weeks, Time Warner Cable will start construction to bring fiber optic cables to Harlow and Exchange Streets. Time Warner also plans to place conduits down Park and Hancock Streets, which will give most businesses downtown faster internet. Brad Ryder, the owner of Epic Sports, says he's eager for this downtown improvement to better serve his customers.
"Right now we're able to do that, however, it can be kind of a laborious job just because it's running at a slower speed," Ryder said.
