Case Study #1 Posted

“Could fiber Internet really happen in Powhatan?” The short answer is YES! The slightly-longer answer is “YES! But it’s going to take some work.” Look at this Case Study from Calix Inc. on ATMC in Columbus County, North Carolina. ATMC ran over 260 miles of fiber in just under 12 months to connect over 4000 homes and businesses. Columbus County is almost 4 times the size of Powhatan in square miles, with an average of ~65 persons per square mile versus Powhatan’s ~105 persons per square mile. So we have more people in less space, which means our network could cost a lot less, and get built a lot faster… Read the case study and let us know your thoughts.

Up next: What’s the next step? We want fiber, but where do we go from here?
