Toward a "Gigabit Nation"
To compete, to lead, to excel – America needs more speed in its broadband networks. That’s why the FTTH industry is moving forward toward the day when every American community can tap directly into fiber networks offering almost unlimited bandwidth. Many FTTH networks today offer transmission speeds of up to 100 megabits per second downstream – and almost as much upstream - with a few providers now offering speeds of up to a gigabit. And one of the great things about fiber is that it’s “future proof” – that is, the technology keeps improving will continue to enable vast increases in bandwidth over the same installed fiber.
