What is Mid Century Fiber?
Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or Mid Century Fiber is the delivery of a communications signal over fiber optics to a home or business. This fiber will replace the existing copper infrastructure such as telephone wires and coaxial cable. Fiber-to-the-home is a relatively new and fast growing method of providing higher bandwidth to consumers and businesses, which enables more robust Internet and telephone services.
Connecting homes directly to fiber optic cable enables large improvements in the bandwidth that can be provided to consumers. Current fiber optic technology can provide two-way transmission speeds of up to 1000 megabits per second (1Gig). Further, as cable modem and DSL providers are struggling to squeeze increments of higher bandwidth out of their technologies, ongoing improvements in fiber optic equipment are constantly increasing available bandwidth without having to change the fiber. That’s why fiber networks are said to be “future proof.”
