Bandwidth is the amount of data transferred in a set amount of time. It is the increasing number of internet applications – and our increasing use of those applications – that are ultimately driving bandwidth demand to optical fibre, the only medium capable of managing all of it in the long-term. Some examples of technology that require a lot of bandwidth are:
As cable modem and DSL providers struggle to squeeze higher bandwidth out of their technologies, Wightman's FTTH is able to provide increasing bandwidth without having to change fibre or equipment.
Wightman Telecom believes that FTTH is the ultimate solution to future-proof your home. FTTH provides superior performance and smart economics, and Wightman will install fibre and equipment in your home at no cost (when fibre is being installed in your area).
According to sources cited in TecHome Builder magazine November/December (2006), the value of your home will increase if you have Fibre to the Home. As Fibre to the Home continues to expand across North America, there is growing evidence that fibre-equipped homes and offices sell faster and command a price premium over real estate without fibre. Today’s prospective buyers are looking for a new type of amenity – connectivity.
Fibre to the Home gives your community a competitive advantage. Having fibre services is quite appealing for real estate, business, and community as a whole. A future-proof infrastructure and state of the art technology are compelling features to any individual or business considering a move to a smaller community. Now you can offer the home-town advantage with Fibre to the Home. Baby boomers have moved back to the communities where they grew up and now they don’t have to trade connectivity for the quality of life they would experience living in a smaller community. Professionals and others who want to work from home will not be hampered by dated technology.
