Toward a "Gigabit Nation"
To compete, to lead, to excel – America needs more speed in its broadband networks. That’s why the FTTH industry is moving forward toward the day when every American community can tap directly into fiber networks offering almost unlimited bandwidth. Many FTTH networks today offer transmission speeds of up to 100 megabits per second downstream – and almost as much upstream - with a few providers now offering speeds of up to a gigabit. And one of the great things about fiber is that it’s “future proof” – that is, the technology keeps improving will continue to enable vast increases in bandwidth over the same installed fiber.
The Fiber Broadband Association's mission is to accelerate deployment of all-fiber networks by demonstrating how fiber-enabled applications and solutions create value for network operators and their customers, promote economic development and enhance quality of life.
The vision of the Fiber Broadband Association is to be the voice for ultra high-speed networks throughout the Americas.
