Electric vehicles (EVs) have a long and complicated history. The first electric car debuted in the U.S. around 1890. It was a six-passenger vehicle with a top speed of about 14 miles per hour. By the early 20th century, many taxis in New York City were electric.

By the mid- 1930s, electric vehicles had mostly vanished.

When we announced our fiber service last year, our products included the “triple play” of internet, voice and video. The decision to offer all three was based on your feedback that you were interested in all three services from Tipmont.
