We applaud Google and Huntsville for their announcement today of a public-private partnership to bring gigabit fiber to Huntsville residents. The FTTH Council believes all fiber networks are essential for communities, and that each community should have every opportunity to get better broadband.
Joanne Hovis, President of CTC Technology & Energy has been appointed to the FTTH Council Board of Directors.
“From our survey of North American broadband providers, we’ve found that fiber to the home deployment has continued to grow steadily and 2015 marks the second biggest year for expansion since the technology became available,” said Michael Render, President of RVA, LLC.
Today, the Fiber to the Home Council Americas (FTTH Council) along with Canby Telcom and the Canby, Oregon community celebrated the third annual “Gimme Fiber Day.”
At a hearing entitled “Breaking Down Barriers to Broadband Infrastructure Deployment,” Gold testified about ways to streamline the federal construction permitting process and expand statutory rights to access to poles, ducts and conduit to accelerate the deployment of broadband to more Americans.
