The Association welcomes members from all companies involved in supporting the deployment of fiber-based networks.
“Since launching in 2014, Xfinity Communities has grown like wildfire due to growing demand from both prospective residents and building owners across the country,” said Heather Burnett Gold, CEO & President of the Fiber Broadband Association. “As a Premier member, Xfinity Communities brings with it excitement and momentum to the industry that is crucial to building consensus around the important issues that will impact fibers’ future.”
“At Xfinity Communities, we know there are many paths to delivering gigabit speeds.
