What are the True Benefits of Fiber to the Home (FTTH)?

  • Posted on: 12 February 2020

Fiber is the best alternative for working from home, gaming interactively, streaming video and music, uploading media, speaking with contacts across the globe, monitoring security systems, or running a business from a residential neighborhood. A fiber optic backbone will cover and exceed a family’s needs for Internet, TV and phone — and typically raises home values in connected neighborhoods. There has never been a better time to FutureProof the home.

A super fast, reliable Gigabit fiber network with resiliency and redundancy is what businesses and home users want and need. The WideOpen Concept keeps telecom, media and internet dollars in the community, which means more local jobs and a boom to the local economy. Because each community owns their fiber optic network, homeowners and businesses have true choice of multiple providers offering multiple services.

The WideOpen Concept translates to business class service anywhere the network is implemented.

We're getting ready to identify our next neighborhoods for Gigabit fiber expansion. If you live in Blacksburg or Christiansburg, fill out the survey (the link is on the home page) and let us know. Tell your neighbors, too--we are looking for neighborhoods with a high interest in getting connected.

Our first two neighborhoods are now online with super-fast fiber connections. Residents are paying $69.95/month for a Gigabit fiber connection and a 1000 Meg down/1000 Meg up Internet service. We are now going to be looking for more neighborhoods in Blacksburg to bring the world's best Internet service. Follow the link on our home page to fill out the "I want fiber" interest form. We'll be bringing fiber to the neighborhoods with the highest response rate to our form, so tell your neighbors to fill out the form too. The next two neighborhoods will be launched in Late Summer of 2020.

We are completing the final equipment configuration on the network in our first two Blacksburg area neighborhoods today, and expect to start connecting customers with super-fast Internet in the next couple of days.

What comes next?

We will be using data from our survey (have you filled it out to let us know you want Gig fiber?) to identify where to build next.

The picture below shows the first fiber to the home cabinet in the New River Valley.
