Twin Valley Fiber Trends October 2023

Staying up-to-date and on top of current trends has become a nearly full-time job in today’s world, and just like with interior design, fashion, and shopping trends, technology is no exception—especially when it comes to faster internet connections. With millions of individuals working remotely, attending virtual classes from home, and ditching their cable for streaming services, the demand for faster and more reliable internet connections is higher than ever before. To continue providing Kansas residents with reliable service plans at an affordable price, our team at Twin Valley constantly monitors the latest industry trends and insights relating to fiber internet. Keep reading to make sure you and your family are staying ahead of the game!

Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Growth

It’s no secret that most internet traffic occurs on wireless devices, such as tablets and smartphones. Because of this, wireline broadband infrastructures (fiber internet, at-home WiFi, and hot spots) are reliable for supporting nearly 90 percent of internet traffic, allowing fiber providers like Twin Valley to offer Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and Fiber to the Building (FTTB) services. In 2023 and beyond, expect to see a broadband connection in every home across the country!

What is FTTH? Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is a deployment model where the fiber optic connection is extended directly to residential buildings. This trend is gaining momentum as more providers are investing in last-mile infrastructure to bring fiber internet right to your doorstep. FTTH offers the best possible internet experience, as it eliminates the latency and signal degradation that can occur with traditional copper cable connections.

Fixed Wireless and Fiber Integration

Fiber-optic internet has been around for several decades, but it’s only in recent years that it has become more accessible to a broader range of consumers. And the integration of fixed wireless technology with fiber optics is a remarkable trend our team at Twin Valley is keeping our eyes on! Fiber backhaul, connecting our next-generation fixed wireless towers to the internet, is becoming critical for bridging the digital divide in rural low-density areas. With advancements in hardware and software technologies, our team at Twin Valley can provide speeds unheard of in rural areas (reaching up to 500/125 Mbps) with our next-generation fixed wireless. This is a huge leap forward from copper cables, which can deliver on average 20/1 Mbps to 75/10 Mbps, depending on the technology and distance to the equipment.

  • Enjoy Fast Wireless Connectivity
  • Expand Into Rural Communities
  • Support High Data Transfer Rates

Increased Security Measures

In today’s world, we live our lives online. And with the staggering increase in daily online activities, the need for enhanced security measures is a growing trend. Why do you need to know this? Because fiber-optic networks are inherently more secure than traditional copper networks. They are less susceptible to interference and are challenging to tap into, making them an unparalleled choice for organizations concerned about data security. As we move further into the future, expect to see even more sophisticated security features integrated into fiber internet services!
