GCI, Alaska's largest telecom company and a Clearfield/Calix customer, just announced they will deploy 1Gbps to the Anchorage area by 2015. One website is quoting GCI as stating they will spend "tens of millions of dollars" on beefed up infra to support the higher speeds.
Yet another 1Gbps announcement. Home Telecom of South Carolina announced they will be partnering with a land management company which is building a 10K home/2K apartment planned community in Charleston. Home will be providing 1Gbps service to this community which will be the first 1Gbps community in S.C. There will also be 6mm sq. ft. of retail space involved with the build.
Home is a Clearfield customer as well as a Calix customer going back to the Occam days.
