Broadband in America: Achieving 100 Mbps to 100 Million and Beyond

Download New White Paper Outlining Approach to Rapid, Cost-Effective Next-Generation Broadband Deployments

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2010) - As the Federal Communications Commission readies its National Broadband Plan to go before Congress mid-March, many approaches to delivering next-generation broadband services are being discussed. One of the most effective and rapidly deployable approaches continues to be the fiber-to-the-node architecture that employs traditional copper telephone lines -- combined with advanced broadband DSL technology -- as the last mile connection for consumers.

These next-generation Broadband 2.0 hybrid networks are capable of delivering 100 megabit per second (Mbps) performance, equal to or even greater than alternative approaches. Additionally, these networks can provide this performance at a fraction of the cost of a fiber-to-the-home implementation, and can be deployed more quickly since they capitalize on the existing wiring plant found in every city in America.
