Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP), also known as Fiber-to-the-Home or FTTH, is the most advanced communications infrastructure available today. Fiber optic lines comprise the Internet backbone connecting all major cities and even connecting continents by lines laid across the oceans. FTTP extends the Internet Fiber Backbone directly to the property where services are being delivered. When Falcon Broadband brings fiber directly to your home or business this means the property receives the best infrastructure available.
The best infrastructure available translates into better and more reliable services for customers. From the sheer unmatched data capacity of fiber to its resilience to corrosion and inability to conduct electricity, every aspect of FTTP contributes to a better customer experience.
These are the advantages of fiber:
- Higher data rates
- Greater distances
- Does not corrode
- Unaffected by lightning
- Immune to electromagnetic interference
- No fire hazard and no chance of electrical shock
- Smaller and lighter
- More secure
- Advanced monitoring and troubleshooting
In the Community
Communities want the best infrastructure, so they can receive the best services and attract investment for economic growth. In today’s information age a community’s communication infrastructure is just as important as its roads and electrical infrastructure. People want to purchase homes where they can telecommute, receive online services, and where their children’s school is connected to online resources. Businesses need more and more online services as well, including cloud computing, but they also need a technological workforce who is connected at school and home. A FTTP infrastructure helps promote economic development because it provides homes, schools, libraries, government buildings, and businesses access to the best communications infrastructure available.
Consumer demand for bandwidth continues to increase exponentially year after year. FTTP is the infrastructure that can meet that demand today and into the future. The United States is actually falling further behind countries like Japan and Korea in FTTP deployments because there is an existing copper infrastructure that is protected by large corporations and is still able to meet most needs. Worldwide fiber is seen as the gateway that will enable innovation of new products and services, and the United States needs to stay competitive in this innovation. Falcon Broadband is deploying the FTTP system in Falcon and Colorado Springs that will keep pace with future bandwidth demand and service innovation.
Developers and builders coordinate with Falcon Broadband so FTTP can be a part of their product. Coordination brings better value and a better overall experience for customers, and FTTP increases the value of their investment.
