Texas-based Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative (GVTC) may not be near the size of telecom giant AT&T or the area's cable companies, but for residents that live in the Texas Hill Country and rural communities north of San Antonio, the service provider is offering a competitive 40 Mbps service over its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) network.
GVTC's 40 Mbps service is currently available to any business and residential user connected to its fiber network. In tandem with the new service, GVTC is investing $35 million to extend its fiber network to make it available to 80 percent of its customers throughout Far North San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country.
Regardless of the current weak economy, GVTC's efforts with FTTH and other service initiatives appear to have helped the cooperative create a recipe for profitability. In June, the GVTC was able to disburse $4.1 million in capital credits to its member companies.
