Fiber to the Home (FTTH)
Fiber Optics: (Definition) consisting of or using thin flexible fibers with a glass core through which light signals can be sent with very little loss of strength: "high-speed fiber-optic broadband"
Mulberry Telecommunications continues to push forward with our Fiber to the Home Project (FTTH). To date we have put in over 210 miles of fiber. Thus far we have been able to covert 780 customers over to fiber optics. We plan to be 100% Fiber by 2022. It is our continued commitment to meet the evolving needs of our customers and our community.
About our Fiber to the Home Project
Mulberry Telecommunications began its fiber optic construction a few years ago to bring our cooperative members the latest in telecommunications technology. This rebuild of our copper system will not only allow us to bring you the entertainment and communications products of today, it will also prepare us for any new technological developments in the future.Fiber optics technology utilizes different wavelengths of light to transmit information through a strand similar to a human hair, allowing much more information to be transmitted and with less interference than with traditional copper wire. For our members, this translates into crystal-clear telephone reception, fast internet connections and browsing speeds, and television with High Definition (HD) programming, Video on Demand, Whole Home DVR (WHDVR) and even MTC Security service. With this investment in our infrastructure, we’re ready for anything.

The Benefits of Fiber
By installing Fiber Optics to your home we can drastically increase your bandwidth.
Increased bandwidth means faster internet speeds and more reliable TV service.
Here are the top 5 benefits of Fiber:
1. Security – Fiber is the MOST secure network: for example, it is quite possible
to attach to a copper line in order to hack into the system, however, fiber
connectivity is made out of glass, and the only way to penetrate the system is
to break it, which would cause the whole system to go down and in turn would
alert you that you have been hacked – rare disruption of connectivity.
Fiber Optics: consisting of or using thin flexible fibers with a glass core through
which light signals can be sent with very little loss of strength:
"high-speed fiber-optic broadband"
2. Speed – Fiber optic internet runs at the speed of light –
the fastest transport medium allowing for quick and instant data retrieval.
3. High Bandwidth – Symmetrical bandwidth (same upload speed as download speed)
allowing for much longer transmission distances and high signal rates.
4. Private Connection – No other businesses run off the same line as you,
hence a PRIVATE connection.
5. NO Electromagnetic Interference – If and when the fiber optic cables
need to be run in close or nearby proximity to electrical machinery
(especially ones with high-frequency noises), fiber connectivity allows the
control signals to be carried without error or interference, making fiber a
number one choice for factory and machinery companies
