Gigabit Access

The promise of Gigabit Fiber is gigabit (Gb) synchronous Internet service to the home. Video files, Big Data files, and other large applications will load much faster than on today's infrastructure. This benefits virtual workers whose home Internet connection may exceed that in the office.

Entrepreneurship

High-impact entrepreneurs create the most jobs. When Gigabit Fiber was deployed in Kansas City there was an immediate increase in entrepreneurial activity including: Kansas City Startup Village, Home for Hackers, and a Sprint Accelerator powered by Techstars. Brad Feld even purchased a FiberHouse!
