So What is Fiber Optic Broadband?
Fiber to the home (FTTH) or Fiber to the premise (FTTP) refers to a method of delivering data, video and voice utilizing light waves carried on glass fibers. Traditional broadband services are delivered over legacy copper cables. Many DSL services are still trying to push data through voice grade copper lines put into service decades ago. Cable companies also use copper cabling to deliver service. The old copper technology simply cannot continue to meet the demands of even the average household users. Glass is just better than copper. When Intelliwave brings fiber to your home we use newly installed fiber optic cables. Fiber can deliver multiple gigabits of data, video and voice. Fiber Optics are the best bet to meet your broadband needs today and into the foreseeable future. Out with the old, in with the NEW!
Is Fiber New?
Fiber Optics is not a new technology. Fiber has been transporting massive quantities of voice and Internet data for decades. What is new is the concept of bringing fiber service all the way to your door. In the past fiber existed only in the domain of massive networks and massive businesses. And let’s face it, in years past, the old copper wires carried enough data to meet the average household need for bandwidth. But technology demand travels at the speed of light! What was sufficient 10 years ago, or even 2 years ago, is not sufficient today. Intelliwave fiber isn’t re-inventing the wheel – we are using tested, tried and true technology. Our innovation is the delivery of the product directly to your door.
Who else offers Fiber to the home?
Well, there is this little company named Google. Have you heard of Google Fiber? Verizon FiOS? This is the same technology that we are bringing to your door. How can that be? How is it possible that here in rural Ohio you are getting the same technology that people are getting in Atlanta, Austin, Kansas City etc… ? The answer is that Intelliwave Fiber does not already have millions of dollars invested in old cables that we have to maintain. We have a fresh start – so we are “leapfrogging” over the old infrastructure and installing the latest and greatest.
