We’re Bringing the Fusion Network to McGregor in 2017

Alpine Communications is making a $3-million-dollar investment in our 100% fiber-optic Fusion Network in McGregor. This means every home, business, and organization within the McGregor city limits that subscribes to telephone service from Alpine will be given a direct fiber connection at no additional charge. This connection will provide access to fiber’s many benefits:

  • Virtually unlimited bandwidth
  • Blazing-fast internet speeds
  • Always dependable connections
  • Superb TV picture quality
  • Crystal-clear and reliable phone service
  • Productivity-boosting applications for businesses
  • Increased home values
  • Enhanced economic growth, communication, and collaboration

Our Fusion Network will be constructed in McGregor in phases and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017. As fiber is installed in each area, homes and businesses will be contacted in advance to ensure the switch over is done in a manner that respects your property and is convenient to your schedule.

Alpine Fusion Network

Alpine Communications is excited to bring the Iowa communities of Garnavillo, Elkader, Elgin, Guttenberg, and McGregor future-proof fiber optic communications technology. It is all part of our commitment to provide exceptional customer service to our customers. Fiber to the Home offers many advantages to residential customers and businesses alike and prepares everyone to enjoy an even greater selection of communications options in the future.

What is Fiber to the Home?

Fiber to the Home (FTTH) refers to the installation and use of fiber optic cables to carry digital information directly to homes and businesses. These cables are made up of hundreds or thousands of fiber optics, which are long thin strands of pure glass about the diameter of a human hair.

FTTH replaces the duplicate infrastructure that telephone and cable companies previously installed in neighborhoods. Fiber has a higher bandwidth capacity and can easily transmit applications like telephone and Internet with plenty of capacity left over for other applications in the future.

Fiber to the Home (FTTH) technology will allow telecommunications services to be transported over fiber optic cables—the best technology available. Fiber has virtually unlimited capacity to bring telephone, Internet, digital television, and other services to subscribers – with very high quality and reliability.

What are the Benefits of the Alpine Fusion Network?

FTTH provides many benefits to Alpine Communications customers including:

More Bandwidth

Fiber has the capability to transport virtually unlimited bandwidth. This will accommodate today’s demand for high speed Internet connections as well as the advanced applications of tomorrow. The closer the fiber is to a home or business, the more bandwidth will be available for the end user.

Greater Reliability

Fiber optic cables are less susceptible to glitches than traditional copper wires and can withstand the shock and vibration from inclement weather.

Future Flexibility

FTTH is considered “future proof” and offers the flexibility to deliver additional services in the years to come.

Cost Efficiency

Fiber optic cable can be made for less than the equivalent length of copper wire and is more durable. Although the FTTH project requires expenditures now,
it will save Alpine Communications money in the future while keeping us at the forefront of technology.

Alpine’s Fusion Network is the first and only fiber optic network in Iowa to be certified by the Fiber To The Home Council. With this certification, Alpine was awarded a badge which signifies that an installation meets the FTTH Council’s standard for running fiber optic cable all the way to the boundary of the home premises. This ensures that there is no confusion and our customers know they are getting the quality and bandwidth that are present only when fiber is run all the way to the home.
