Middle America fast becoming fiber America

Founded in 1956, Elkhart Telephone, has decided to go all fiber. The Kansas-based independent phone operator will be deploying Wave7 Optics gear in its new FTTP network in Kansas.  Elkhart will offer 4-lines per residence of VOIP, 100-channel RF-video television and high-speed data services, throughout its current subscriber base region of 1400 residential and business lines by the end of 2Q 2006.  Wave7’s Last Mile Link Ethernet-based technology won over the GPON (gigabit PON) technology from another FTTP vendor.
