Q:
What is fiber?

Fiber is a hair-thin strand of glass, specially designed to trap and transmit light pulses. The fiber uses light instead of electricity to carry a signal. It is unique because it can carry high bandwidth signals over long distances without signal loss, and it can provide those signals simultaneously in both directions – upload and download. Fiber to the home (FTTH) is the delivery of a communications signal over optical fiber from the operator’s switching equipment all the way to a home or business, thereby replacing existing copper infrastructure (coaxial cable). Fiber to the home is a fast-growing method of providing vastly higher and more stable internet connections.
How does running fiber all the way to homes and businesses improve telecommunications services?

Connecting homes directly to fiber optic cable enable enormous improvements in the bandwidth that can be provided to subscribers, both now and for many years to come. Fiber access technology can provide two-way transmission speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second. All-fiber networks are capable of providing symmetrical bandwidth for downloading and uploading, which give them another advantage over copper-based networks.
Isn’t everything going wireless? Why do we need wireline fiber connections in our homes?

Wireless mobility is increasingly important to the proliferation of Internet applications and services. But when you look at connectivity from end to end, the vast majority of the signals are carried over wireline (and increasingly) fiber infrastructure, whether it’s to a cell tower in the neighborhood, a Wi-Fi access point in a business or community center, or a wireless router in the home. It is this blend of robust wireless mobility and ultra-high-speed wireline connectivity that is driving the development of the “always available” platform that is delivering increasingly sophisticated, high-bandwidth services and applications to both consumers and businesses.
What makes fiber the right choice for Wyandotte?
A fiber-optic network sends and receives data at the speed of light. In addition to super-fast transmission speeds, a fiber-optic network can carry an extremely high amount of data. Fiber is also more reliable than other networks, because it’s less susceptible to interference and damage from lightning and other acts of nature.

Where will the internet service be offered?

Fiber to the home will be offered though out all of Wyandotte. The Fiber roll out will begin in one part of the city and continue until completion. When we are in your area you will receive a written notice on your door, and at that time you will need to set up an appointment, a technician will need to gain access into the home to complete the Fiber install.

Can I preregister for fiber internet service?

Once the crew is in your area, you will be able to sign up.
Are their data caps with this service?
Unlimited Data will still be offered at this time.

Will a contract be required?

No, we will still provide the same expectation of service we do currently.
What internet packages will be available?
Packages with minimum of 300 megabits (MBPS) per second upload and download speeds. We will offer a package with a maximum of 1,000 MBPS (1 Gig) per second upload and download speeds, along with a managed Wi-Fi service.
