Xcelerate Broadband Nears Completion of FTTH Network

OMAHA, NE – Design and engineering firm Optica Network Technologies says it is nearing the completion of Phase 1 construction of a fiber-to-the-home network in Georgia for Xcelerate Broadband, formerly Bulldog Cable. Phase 1 began in April and is on schedule to be completed and turned up in August; Phases 2 and 3 are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013. The project is funded in part by broadband stimulus loans and grants.

Xcelerate Broadband will offer advanced triple-play offerings to several communities in Baldwin, Putnam, and Hancock counties in Georgia - including Internet access at speeds up to 1 Gbps symmetrical, putting it on par with some of the fastest available in the U.S. Along with high-speed Internet, Xcelerate will also offer IPTV and home phone services. It selected Optica in September 2012 to engineer and design the network based on Optica's expertise, including a prior FTTH build in Cambridge, Neb.

“It has always been our goal to provide our customer the very best in communication technology,” says Mark Wilson, president of Xcelerate Broadband. “In order to continue to help our community grow, a fiber-to-the-home network was needed to provide the types and levels of services needed. ”
