Broadband Communities Magazine Recognizes United Communications As A Leader In Expanding High-Speed Fiber Internet
The Broadband Communities list of fiber-to-the-home leaders and innovators for 2023 includes United Communications as a TOP 100 FIBER-TO-THE-HOME internet provider. “Building a Fiber-Connected World” is the Broadband Communities magazine tagline. Each year, the Fiber-To-The-Home Top 100 list recognizes organizations that lead the way in this endeavor.
In selecting the FTTH Top 100, the editors looked for organizations that advance the cause of fiber-based broadband by
– Deploying large or ambitious networks that have innovative business plans or intend to transform local economies or improve communities’ quality of life
– Supplying critical hardware, software or services to deployers
– Introducing innovative technologies with game-changing potential, even if they have not yet been commercially deployed
– Providing critical conditions for fiber builds, such as advocacy or demand aggregation
Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployment in the U.S. continues to outpace legacy copper broadband, a trend impacting service providers and vendor suppliers.
In its “2023–2024 North American Fiber Broadband Report: FTTH and 5G Review and Forecast,” RVA predicts more than 100 million fiber passings in the U.S. over the next decade. The count is in addition to the estimated 68 million U.S. homes already passed with FTTH: 63 million unique homes, excluding homes passed twice or more. The research firm predicted that the additional passings would include reaching a high percentage of primary residences, homes passed by two or more fiber providers in specific demographics, and second homes/short-term rental homes.
