Savvy service providers around the globe are discovering the power of gigabit networks to capture the imagination of their subscribers. Higher broadband take rates, lower churn, and the ability to rapidly introduce new revenue generating services – these are just a few of the direct benefits of “going gigabit.”
Equally important, however, is the perception of technology and broadband leadership that these services can bestow on the reputation of the gigabit service provider. This “Halo Effect” associated with gigabit services is proving to be exceptionally powerful, and is fundamentally changing the economics of fiber deployment.
The benefits of gigabit services extend to the entire community – through improved economic development, better education and public services, and an enviable broadband lifestylethat truly redefines the possibilities of broadband.
