Xfone lights up FTTP customers in Slaton, Texas

Xfone, a competitive broadband provider, has brought its first Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) customer in Slaton, Texas online as part of the ongoing buildout of its PRIDE network.

Upon completion, Xfone's FTTP network will reach 19 new communities, passing about 50,000 homes. The PRIDE network expansion is being funded through $100 million in federal broadband stimulus grants.

Thus far, Xfone has built out its FTTP network in eight Texas communities: Lubbock, Levelland, Smyer, Wolfforth, Littlefield, Burkburnett, Brownfield and Whitharral.

Xfone has been complementing its FTTP build by acquiring a number of other regional cable operators, including most recently cable operator Reach Broadband and 2,400 cable subscribers from CoBridge Telecom.
