What is GTelFiber
Fiber-to-the-home is the delivery of information, communication, and entertainment services over optical fiber directly into the homes and businesses that fall within a specific coverage area. The fiber will replace all copper lines (traditional telephone wires) and coaxial cables. The same services you enjoy today will be provided via a single fiber with higher bandwidth for increased data flow.
Advantages of Fiber
A single fiber connection from the closest switching center to each individual residence.
Bandwidth can be increased as applications require. No need for updated equipment outside your home.
100% Digital Video Transmission
All Channels will be 100% digital with high quality pictures and HD channels available.
Incredibly fast downstream and upstream data transmissions make it easy when streaming video & music, as well as receiving digital photos and large email attachments.
Multiple devices in your home share your DSL bandwidth (i.e. iPad, iPod, Xbox, Playstation, Netflix, Kindle, and/or multiple computers). Fiber can provide more bandwidth than copper, allowing many of these devices to work at once with little loss of speed (depending on the speed of your package).
Piece of Mind
Access your information even faster when trying to work from home. Never be late to another web-meeting or Skype call again!
Rain, rain, go away! Fiber cables, unlike copper cables, are not as easily affected by bad weather conditions. This means, no more static on your phone lines or snowy pictures on your TV during rain storms.
