Op-Ed: Hotwire or Orion?

Tagged in

Now and in the future, RSF home buyers will require internet speeds that are comparable to that offered by other high-end neighborhoods (e.g., 10 GBits/sec or faster).

Hotwire or Orion? It’s not a question of Fiber vs. Cable as both use these technologies. We just need answers to a few simple questions…

  • What up and down speed can you offer the homeowners, when, and at what cost? Cost includes initial investment, ongoing costs and cost to homeowner.
  • What guarantee can you make regarding controlling costs in the future?

  • What can you say about your service and support existing 5 , 10, or 15 years from now?

10 Gbits/sec up and down may seem very fast now. But these speeds may be considered “average” in 5 to 10 years when Virtual Reality and very high-definition TV are mainstream.
