Canby Telcom gets into the FTTH zone

While traditional ILECs and cable operators fight over how fast their broadband speeds are and who has the best fiber network, Canby Telcom is giving its small city customers speeds that the majority of the larger service providers can't replicate through its new FiberOptic Zone (FOz) service. Indeed, the new FOz service offers its customers three speed tiers: a 20/10 Mbps; 40/20 Mbps; and 60/30 Mbps.

Canby Telecom has been aggressively rolling out FTTH for over two years in its city. As of the end of 2009, the ILEC wired about 1,000 homes--a major milestone for a company the size of Canby--with fiber capabilities. In 2010, Canby Telcom plans to expand its FTTH capabilities to even more areas of Canby. "We are between 40-50 percent complete on our Fiber to the home project," said Canby Telcom President Keith Galitz.
