Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is the installation and use of optical fiber from a central point directly to individual residences to provide unparalleled bandwidth capacity. Fiber technology delivers much more robust video, Internet, and voice services than those delivered by older technologies such including coax and copper.
Fiber lines installed now will continue to be fully operational decades into the future because fiber does not corrode, is not easily affected by water, generates no heat, and cannot be damaged by lightning strikes. Fiber networks are more reliable than others and maintain longer and more consistent up-times.
1. Fiber to the Home enhances property values.
According to the Fiber Broadband Association, buyers of houses and condominiums are willing to pay a 3 percent premium for a fiber-connected home, and renters are willing to pay an 8 percent premium. Fiber-passed homes also sell and rent faster, on average.
2. Fiber to the Home (FTTH) delivers cutting-edge technology now and well into the future, making it Future-Proof.
The upgrade path for the electronic components that send and receive signals has been defined for years into the future, therefore, fiber is permanent. Once installed, fiber is upgraded by changing the electronics that create and receive the light pulses, not by replacing the cable itself. As technology advances, upgrading the electronics with lasers that pulse light faster, or lasers that use different wavelengths of light, can vastly increase available bandwidth without changing the fiber itself.
3. Fiber to the Home (FTTH) delivers Gigabit speeds.
The demand for bandwidth is growing as more and more devices and features within your home use Wifi. With Gig Speed Internet, your community will keep up with the latest Smart Home trends such as:
4. Fiber to the Home (FTTH) delivering Gigabit Internet speeds is an attractive amenity for rental properties.
Research shows that residents rank access to high quality broadband service as one of the top amenities they desire in a new home. The same research also shows that fiber access increases residents’ satisfaction with their homes and appears to reduce churn, helping building owners and operators maintain high levels of occupancy and provide a quality living environment.
