We work alongside city or municipal authorities to explore bringing in Fiber@Home to the selected area. This means reviewing the infrastructure such as roads, underground utility paths and even permitting capabilities to ensure the area is ready to design and build a brand new high-speed network.
Every mile of this super-fast network is planned properly and carefully. We use the shared data to create a map of where we are able to build this network, taking into account existing utilities poles and waters, gas and electricity lines.
With the plan in place, we then string and lay thousands of miles of brand new,state of the art fibre optic cable in the area.
Fiber@Home is built in little community areas within a city based on the response and sign-ups of a particular area. If we receive enough interest or sign-ups within a particular community, we then begin to build the fibre network. These small communities that are connected with Fiber@Home is known as Fiberhoods.
Finally we complete the process by connecting qualified fiberhoods to the new network and install the service in homes and businesses.
Fiber@Home starts with a internet connection speed of up to 100Mbps and an intranet connection speed of 1Gbps.
