OmniTel selects ADTRAN solution for Broadband Stimulus project

6 Mar 2013

Next generation networking solutions provider ADTRAN has announced that Iowa-based telecoms operator OmniTel Communications has selected its Total Access broadband platform to roll out fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) in rural areas of the US state. The FTTH solution will enable OmniTel to deliver high speed connectivity for customers who previously only had access to dial-up internet, and also provide digital voice and video services for over 7,000 subscribers across the state. ‘Regardless if they are in a big city or a rural community, residential customers expect fast and reliable internet, voice and video service from their local providers,’ said Mitch Fleming, regional vice president of sales, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division, adding: ‘OmniTel Communications is successfully meeting this demand with ADTRAN’s FTTH solution which allows them to offer a high-capacity fibre access network that easily scales to handle the most bandwidth intensive and highly profitable next-generation services.’ As a Rural Utilities Service (RUS) grant winner in the national Broadband Stimulus programme, OmniTel is also helping carry out the statewide initiative of the Iowa Broadband Deployment Governance board by ensuring that that high speed broadband is available in rural areas of the state.
