FTTH will provide many benefits to All West customers, including:
- More Bandwidth
Fiber has the capability to transport virtually unlimited bandwidth. This will accommodate today’s demand for high-speed internet connections as well as the advanced applications of tomorrow. The closer the fiber is to a home or business; the more bandwidth will be available for the end-user.
- Greater Reliability
Fiber-optic cables are less susceptible to glitches than traditional copper wires and can withstand the shock and vibration from inclement weather.
- Future Flexibility
FTTH is considered “future proof” and offers the flexibility to deliver additional services in the years to come.
- Cost Efficiency
Fiber-optic cable can be made for less than the equivalent length of copper wire and is more durable. Although the FTTH project requires expenditures now, it will save All West money in the future while keeping us at the forefront of technology.
- Added Value
In addition to bringing you great communication services, the FTTH Council released a study showing access to fiber-delivered internet boosts home values by up to 3.1 percent (http://www.ftthcouncil.org/blog/study-shows-home-values-up-3.1-with-access-to-fiber). But more importantly, people just want fast, reliable broadband service.
