Multiple Dwelling Units (MDU's)
Residents in multi-unit buildings want access to ultra-high speed broadband service, and they want to be able choose among providers to get the best service at the best price. For the most part, building owners and managers work with their residents to provide this choice because they understand the importance of ultra-high speed broadband service. However, at times, building owners and managers either block or limit choice for no apparent or sufficient reason. In those cases, the Fiber Broadband Association believes residents need a government backstop to provide a fair and reasonable process to enable choice, while enabling providers to control their facilities and enter into agreements with building owners and managers that drive the deployment of ultra-high speed networks.
Fiber should be the first choice for building communications wiring moving forward, especially in new construction. This webinar will give compelling reasons why fiber is the best choice. We’ll review technology trends and some demographic information, and then discuss why fiber is now the highest capacity, least expensive, simplest, easiest to install and least intrusive communications wiring choice.
