|Gigabit Seattle’s goal is to build out fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and fiber-to-the-business (FTTB) in 14 demonstration neighborhoods, connected together with the excess capacity that Gigabit Seattle will lease from the City’s own fiber network. The bottom line is that Gigabit Seattle’s technology, will be offering gigabit speeds that are 1000 times faster than the typical high-speed connection.
To provide initial coverage beyond those 14 demonstration neighborhoods, a gigabit broadband wireless umbrella will be built to cover the City providing point-to-point wireless access up to a gigabit. This wireless coverage will provide network and Internet services to customers that don’t have immediate access to fiber anywhere in the City.
Additionally, Gigabit Seattle will include a wireless neighborhood cloud in its 14 neighborhoods providing Gigabit Seattle’s customers with mobile access.
The fiber network, the wireless network, and wireless neighborhood cloud will work together and provide citywide broadband wired and wireless network and Internet services giving Seattle customers’ a choice.
