Direct Communications will present their plans for building out the city of Bennington, Idaho with Fiber-to-the-Home at a open meeting hosted by the city at the Bennington LDS Chapel on Wednesday, April 1 at 8pm.
The meeting is being held to discuss the Bennington Water Project, but Direct Communications representatives will be on hand to answer questions about their planned concurrent fiber project. If you have been waiting for fast, reliable, state-of-the art Internet to finally come to Bennington, please attend and show your support and interest.
WHAT IS FIBER-OPTIC CABLE?
Fiber is the future of communications technology. Fiber optic cable contains strands of optically pure glass, thinner than a human hair, which carry digital information over long distances. Digital signals are sent as pulses of light down the glass fibers, without interference or limitation. This digital transport system is faster, clearer, more reliable, and will give you the bandwidth to access the digital communications services of the future, and today’s IP-based broadband apps such as streaming video, VOIP, video conferencing, home security systems, remote appliance management, and residential internet speeds up to 1 Gig speeds, just like Google provides in Provo, Utah.
The Fiber Optic Advantages Are Clear
The fastest connection speed known to man. We currently offer an unmatched 1000 Mbps residential speed to our fiber customers.
Fiber to the home uses a pure ethernet connection back to your ISP, without needing intermediate equipment like a modem. This results in a much more stable, reliable service, which means no downtime for you. Fiber to the home virtually eliminates most equipment issues, and downtime typically experienced by internet subscribers.
Unlimited carrying capacity means NO CAPS. The bandwidth, like speed is only limited by the processing power of the electronics on each end of the fiber. We will never cap your data usage, or throttle your speeds. Stream as much video as you like without ever worrying about overages.
Unlike copper, there is no resistance in the fiber optic cable, so the signal can travel much further distances. This means we can now serve even the most remote customers with the same consistent service no matter where where you live.
Because it’s literally light being transmitted, there is no interference from electromagnetic noise such as neighbor’s routers, appliances, radios, motors, power lines, or other nearby cables. This means a clearer signal and better broadband connection for you. Even lighting strikes, which can be transmitted by copper cabling, are not transmitted by fiber-optic cable.
Fiber optic cables costs less to maintain than traditional copper lines, saving us all time and money.
