Join the Fiber to the Home Council on the Gigabit Highway and Learn How to Put Your Community in the Fast Lane
Over the next year, the Fiber to the Home Council Americas will speed along the gigabit highway on a journey to greater innovation, economic development and improved social interaction! Join us as we focus on the service providers – private and public – who are building all-fiber networks and explore the communities that are demanding them. Learn about the opportunities and any potential roadblocks or slick spots along the way as you plan your road trip to the future!
Our first stop is Austin, Texas – a city that will soon have two providers, Google Fiber and AT&T, competing to provide customers with gigabit connectivity. We will hear from the individuals involved in attracting, and taking advantage of, the tremendous increase in bandwidth coming to this area.
But not everyone is going to be the next Google Fiber city. Hear from economic experts and leaders of fiber to the home communities as they explain why they have moved forward with network deployment and the benefits they have gained from this investment. Attendees will learn how to develop a financially feasible and sustainable business case for encouraging partnerships with an existing provider or a new entrant. They will also learn about the latest technologies in gigabit connectivity. Finally, there will be plenty of chances to network—with the vendors that understand how to build and operate FTTH networks; with service providers that have deployed; and with consultants who know the enhanced value that only FTTH can bring to a community.
