WOW! (NYSE:WOW) announced the availability of gigabit broadband speeds in Farmington, MI, following continued expansion of the company's Detroit and Livonia network. WOW!'s residential and business services are now available to more than 2,800 residential and business customers in the community.

WOW! currently offers residential and business services in Detroit, Livonia, Grosse Pointe Shores and Mid-Michigan, including Grand Rapids and Greater Lansing. WOW! began the construction of necessary network infrastructure for Farmington in August. WOW!'s gigabit services are based on DOCSIS 3.1.
