SureWest Communications said Monday that it has reached a 30% digital-subscriber-line penetration rate for its residential customer base in the area served by its incumbent local telephone company.

The company provides high-speed-data and video-over-DSL service in Roseville, Citrus Heights, Antelope and Granite Bay, Calif.

“This growth is indicative of the increased bandwidth that is being made in these areas -- up to 3 megabits per second -- as well as the addition of a video-over-DSL option and our ability to offer DSL to 100% of the homes in our telephone-company territory,” SureWest CEO Brian Strom said in a prepared statement.
