Fiber To The Home

Benefits of Fiber


FOCUS delivers broadband speeds up to 1 Gigabit—that’s among the fastest, most powerful connection around.


FOCUS is backed by award-winning customer service from ATMC.


Research shows that a home in an FTTH community is worth more than a similar home in a non-FTTH community.


The fiber optic technology that powers FOCUS is resistant to corrosion, not susceptible to lightning damage, and has a longer life expectancy than regular coaxial cables.


Because of the nearly limitless connection, FOCUS homes are better-equipped for the communications and entertainment technologies of tomorrow.


FOCUS is green, energy-efficient, and less intrusive to the neighborhood landscape.

The Fiber to the Home Advantage

The Fiber Construction & Installation Process


What is fiber to the home?

Fiber to the home (FTTH) is the delivery of a communications signal over optical fiber all the way to a home. It’s a relatively new and fast growing method of providing vastly higher bandwidth to consumers, and thereby enabling more robust video, internet, and voice services.

What is optical fiber?

Optical fiber is a hair-thin strand of glass that uses light instead of electricity to carry a signal. It is unique because it can carry high bandwidth signals over long distances without signal degradation, and it can provide those signals simultaneously in both directions—upload and download. Copper media can only carry high bandwidth for a few hundred yards, after which the signal begins to degrade and bandwidth narrows.

What happens if the electricity goes out?

A battery back-up is installed with the FOCUS configuration at each house. The manufacturer states that the battery back-up unit can power telephone service for up to 6 hours after loss of power.
