Cable One lights FTTH service in Mississippi golf development

Cable One has hatched a plan to spend $250,000 to build out a FTTH network targeting residents in the planned Shell Landing golf/resort area in Pascagoula, Miss.

Set to go live in late October, the FTTH network is small: it will serve a total of 60 homes. Similar to other larger cable MSOs such as Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA), Cable One is an advocate of implementing DOCSIS 3.1 on its existing HFC network to deliver 1 Gbps speeds in 200 cities. However, it has not set a DOCSIS 3.1 deployment schedule. 

Building out FTTH in a Greenfield development makes sense as the cable MSO does not have to overbuild on existing network infrastructure. FierceCable has this report.
