Rural Financial Analyzer Web Tutorial

You may be able to afford FTTH, even in a rural community. The National Broadband Plan calculates rural builds as vastly more expensive than deployments in suburban or urban settings. But that’s because the NBP model assumes that all drops will be built during initial deployment, and that the initial take rate will be 30% or less. But RVA data suggests that rural take rates are far higher than the national average – and that the national average for FTTH is 50%! Tool #3 disaggregates the costs so you can decide how much effort you will put into readying each premises passed, to become a paying customer.

MDU Financial Analyzer Web Tutorial

LIVE WEBINAR ALREADY CONDUCTED.

Can you make a profit by serving apartment buildings, condos, cooperatives, and planned unit developments with high-bandwidth systems? Private Cable Operators do it. Tier 3 ILECs do it – often as CLECs. Real estate developers and MSOs around college campuses do it. High-end “amenity providers” do it. And of course RBOCs do it – although they hardly need our help.

This analyzer hits the issues most relevant today:

  • Justifying the inside plant’s capital cost with new revenue and new ways to use the network to replace other building systems like security.
  • New deployment technology
  • Reducing churn
  • Picking the best properties to add broadband

Broadband Communities’ New Interactive FTTH Tool

LIVE WEBINAR ALREADY CONDUCTED.

Is fiber to the home economically feasible for your proposed network build or expansion? Before you hire a consultant, test your ideas free! Broadband Communities has a new interactive tool, free for downloading. The spreadsheet allows you to try various scenarios over time spans as long as four years, both for construction and operating costs and for possible revenues. The tool is particularly sensitive to choices you might be able to make in logistics and construction pace, taking into account today's high cost of capital for network projects. And it enumerates today's expanded choices and opportunities for revenue -- items like smart grid, work-at-home enhancements, VPNs and more -- all outside the "triple play" of voice, linear video and data. We're introducing the tool with this interactive webinar explaining how to use it. We'll then post the tool itself with the webinar playback and a detailed slide show to guide you, step-by-step. 
And watch for more tools (and webinars) over the coming weeks -- one that delves more deeply into rural builds, and one specifically for MDU opportunities. 
We're helping you to build... Broadband Communities.
