11 Sep Fiber Saves Money on New Buildings
When a local Denver-based high-tech startup learned that Colorado is 21st in the nation for Internet speeds, they decided to help. Open since 1995, FORETHOUGHT.net launched a plan to provide Denver area businesses and residences with the Internet speeds they need to compete globally in the form of gigabit fiber services.
“This is an exciting time for FORETHOUGHT.net to finally offer its community the fastest Internet speeds at affordable prices,” said FORETHOUGHT.net computer networking and telecommunications engineer, Jawaid Bazyar on IT Business Net. “The key benefits are to keep Internet access affordable and globally competitive with extensive peering and its commitment to have no bandwidth caps, no throttling and no hidden charges.”
The service has already rolled out across the Denver metropolitan area and FORETHOUGHT.net hopes to expand to the Front Range and Western Slope areas. After launching their fiber service, the company quickly saw a rise in demand, specifically from real estate owners, developers and managers, asking to link entire properties and buildings to the fiber network.
As property owners and managers continue to demand fast Internet connectivity because it can lure in tenants to their buildings, FORETHOUGHT.net has started offering to hook up entire buildings without fiber connectivity to their fiber gigabit services. Yet, the real savings can be found with new building construction. When builders arrange to run fiber during pre-construction planning, fiber optic lines can be installed at a fraction of the cost.
“There is a demand for gigabit speeds with higher bandwidth consumption online,” Bazyar said. “Gigabit fiber from a local company here to support its clients can provide our customers the power and support that they need at a price that is comparable to a fraction of the speed.”
