Cable One deploys FTTH in Mississippi residential development

Cable One plans to spend $250,000 to deploy fiber-to-the-home broadband services in new residential development in Pascagoula, Miss. Shell Landing golf/resort area. 

The FTTH network will serve approximately 60 homes, with project completion slated for late October.

Last summer, Cable One pledged to double the downstream speeds of new and existing customers across 90 percent of its footprint. In October, the Phoenix, Ariz.-based MSO said it would deploy gigabit-speed services in 200 cities. But the company has yet to declare a schedule for DOCSIS 3.1 deployment. 

"Fiber to the home dramatically increases the connection speeds available to Internet users compared with technologies now used in most places," said Cable One General Manager Charlie Oakes, in a statement "This means Shell Landing residents will have unprecedented high-speed Internet access through Cable One."

Cable One customers in Pascagoula already had access to 200 Mbps speed service. Now they'll get gigabit-speed opportunities.   

"Our extensive fiber network deployment and continued investment in improving and expanding our network enables us to offer the fastest, most reliable internet connections at the best value," Oakes added.
