Future-Proof Fiber Broadband

Connection to the internet has become an essential utility like electricity and water. And while consumer demand for bandwidth skyrocketed during the pandemic, it revealed that the communication infrastructures in small towns and rural areas are painfully out-of-date.

The lack of reliable broadband access is driving residents out of communities they love, and preventing people from moving in. Communities can’t rely on the incumbent carriers to build the infrastructures they need. Residents and business need reliable high-speed bandwidth now.

Although years away from mass market deployment, 5G wireless networks are still heavily dependent on a high fiber backbone to connect the access points. They also require electrical power at the node to operate. Starlink, the 100Mb satellite Internet delivery system being launched by SpaceX, is a cost-effective solution for truly rural areas of the world. However, it will never deliver the gigabit service that land-based fiber provides.

Municipality owned passive optical fiber networks are the most reliable, cost-effective solution to deliver gigabit speed services and ensure an infrastructure that can support future technology services.

Advantages for Municipalities

Lower Capital Costs

As a municipality, you have an advantage over private businesses with your access to the tax-free bond market and the ability for long-term revenue payback.

Right of Way

Municipalities own the right of way. This is a significant advantage over private service providers when constructing underground cable plants, especially in large cities.

Easy Upgrade Path

Fiber is future-proof. The entire network is passive. Bandwidth is limited to the capability of the electronic equipment at the ends.
