NTS Connects First FTTH Customer in Plainview, TX

LUBBOCK, TX - Expanding its broadband stimulus-funded PRIDE network, fiber overbuilder NTS Inc. (formerly Xfone Inc.) connected its first fiber-to-the-home customer in Plainview, Texas.

NTS’ ongoing fiber buildout, when completed, is expected to reach 19 new communities and bring the company’s total FTTP passings to approximately 50,000. The Plainview expansion is being funded using a portion of approximately $100 million in federal stimulus funding.

To date, NTS has established its fiber network in the Texas towns of Lubbock, Levelland, Smyer, Wolfforth, Littlefield, Burkburnett, Brownfield, Whitharral, Slaton, Meadow, Wilson, Lamesa and Ropesville and has also begun construction of its fiber network in Iowa Park, Texas, and Hammond, La. The company has also recently begun a metro build targeting select areas of Wichita Falls, Texas.

Guy Nissenson, chairman, president and CEO of NTS, comments, “We continue to see strong adoption rates as we bring our high-speed, triple-play offering to new markets, as customers recognize the value and convenience of our high-speed bandwidth. Consumers are increasingly reliant on the Internet, both in residential and business applications, and the speed and accessibility of our network meets their expectations. We look forward to bringing advanced broadband to more customers in Plainview and further communities in the near future.”
