"The Fiber Broadband Association is thrilled to honor ALLO Communications for their efforts to deploy all-fiber networks to communities and business across North America," said Fiber Broadband Association President and CEO Lisa R.

The superior technology to deliver Internet and network services is optical fiber that carries a communications signal from an operator's equipment all the way to a home, business or enterprise. This technology has been found to be more robust and reliable than older technologies. Though relatively new, running fiber to homes (fiber-to-the-home) is a fast growing method of providing much greater bandwidth and speeds to consumers and businesses, for more robust video, internet and voice services.
Current fiber optic technology can provide two-way transmission speeds – upload and download -- of over a gigabit per second. As older technologies stretch the limits of their performance or speed, constant improvements in fiber optic technology and equipment can improve how much bandwidth is available without having to deploy new networks. That is why fiber networks are said to be "futureproof."
ALLO's growth and success over the past decade are thanks in large part to our reputation for winning customer service, technical capabilities, experienced, knowledgeable personnel, and superior products.
