Hawaiian Telcom is making progress with its FTTH initiative, making it possible for nearly 60 percent of homes in Oahu to get the 1 Gbps speed tier while eyeing new technologies such as G.fast and VDSL2 to increase speeds on its copper network. Regarding the sub headline and first sentence, as Scott said on the call, ~60% of our enabled homes are FTTH (so 60% of the 183K homes that we've enabled on Oahu). I just don't want people to misinterpret that with 60% of total census households on Oahu (~300K homes).- Also I think Scott said that ultimately we'll enable 230K-235K homes on Oahu (no definite timeframe), though the bulk of it will be done by early 2017. So in your fourth paragraph if you could take out "early 2017" that'd be great!
