We have been truly overwhelmed by the response to OzarksGo. We definitely share in your excitement, and cannot wait to start providing fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services to our communities. One of the biggest questions we know most people have is, "what does FTTH actually mean, and why is it important?" We thought we might help shed some light on this game-changing technology and the benefits it offers.

What is the fiber difference?

Fiber-to-the-home means that a fiber optic cable, which carries internet, TV and telephone services, runs directly into your home. How is this different from what you may have now? It's pretty simple. Most likely, your current provider uses fiber optic cable, but only reaching a pedestal or hub in your neighborhood. Maybe even farther away.

Then, a copper wire carries service to a box on the outside of your home, and then to ports/jacks inside, where you connect your devices. This is where significant internet speed and reliability is lost. Fiber optic cables are made of glass and contain many strands, which makes the capacity almost limitless. Copper cables have been around more than 100 years and aren’t built for today’s needs. They are also susceptible to signal deterioration due to age and environmental conditions.

In a FTTH network, the fiber optic cable runs into your home and directly to a device called an optical network terminal (ONT). The ONT then provides service directly to your devices via wired or wireless connection. There is no changing of wires or cables during this process. So, in essence, you're getting game-changing internet speeds, full HD television and crystal clear phone reception, through a single cable, directly into your home and to your devices.



The fiber optic cable runs directly from our network hub sites, located at substations across our service area, directly into your home and to the ONT.

Speed & Reliability Matter

Most local internet options include speeds that range from less than 10 megabits per second (Mbps) to 300 Mbps. Upload speeds are a different story, however. So are data caps.

For comparison, our FTTH allows us to provide up to 1000 Mbps, or a gigabit, download and upload speeds, with no data caps. As an example of why speed matters, if you tried to download an average-size high-definition movie (4 GB) with DSL (3 Mbps), it would take roughly an hour to download. With gigabit, it would only take around 30 seconds.

And gigabit is just the starting point. The network we are building will be capable of much faster speeds in the future.

Worrying about reliability of your internet connection will also be a thing of the past since age or environmental issues don’t affect fiber. Our active management of demand and bandwidth needs will help assure that our subscribers to never think about their Internet quality again.

Quite simply, it will be the best internet experience you've ever had.
