Are any of your customers asking for faster speeds but don’t have fiber-lit buildings? Do you have customers that are currently on T1s and in coax-lit buildings but are not ready to make coax their primary connection? If you answered either of those questions with “yes,” it’s time to explore Ethernet over Hybrid Fiber Coax (EoHFC).
Not only does EoHFC cost less than a T1, but it also has the ability to take your customers from the traditional 1.5 Mbps to 20 Mbps. EoHFC is ideal if your customer needs no more than 20 Mbps and fiber isn’t available. As Comcast points out, many mid-market businesses today operate with only three Mbps.
This makes EoHFC the perfect solution because it gives businesses the higher speeds they seek without the need for fiber. Comcast offers EoHFC, but other major cable providers do as well. Within the Comcast network, there are 1.5 million buildings that use this solution in contrast to the 70,000 buildings that have fiber.
Additionally, EoHFC supports all of Comcast’s Ethernet Services offerings which include:
- Ethernet Dedicated Internet (EDI)
- Ethernet Private Line (EPL)
- E-Access EPL
- Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)
- Ethernet Network Service (ENS)
