As consumers become more mobile and rely more heavily on the Internet for information and communication, the demand for broadband solutions continues to grow. Fortunately, Actelis (News - Alert), a Broadband Acceleration Company, is working to extend its footprint and bring access to the masses.
Actelis has announced an expansion to its customer portfolio, adding Moapa Valley Telephone Company and Midvale Telephone Exchange. Actelis believes this expansion cements its positioning in the market as The Broadband Acceleration Company.
To extend broadband solutions on a wide scale, Actelis offers the BBA, broadband accelerator, which enables incumbent carriers to boost broadband rates by as much as 100 percent on typical loops, and more than 400 percent on long loops. This approach helps to increase DSL penetration rates in unserved and underserved communities, empowering carriers with the necessary bandwidth to deliver triple-play services.
“Broadband acceleration technology made it possible for us to deliver a choice of service options that meet our customers’ needs in a highly cost-effective manner,” said Brad Lyon, vice president of Moapa Valley. “Overnight we were able to bundle services and boost broadband bandwidth, all of which add up to even greater customer value.”
Moapa Valley implemented the BBA recently, extending its bandwidth by more than 100 percent, while also delivering broadband solutions beyond traditional boundaries, reaching unserved areas of its market.
The provider has been committed to keeping pace with customer demand, yet deploying fiber in remote locations across Nevada was not always economically viable. With access to the BBA from Acetlis, Moapa Valley is able to overcome the physical limitations that kept broadband solutions out of reach for remote consumers, more readily meeting demand within the area.
Idaho-based Midvale was in a similar situation, wanting to bring broadband solutions to remote customers, but limited in its capacity and capabilities. With the BBA, the provider is now taking broadband to areas where it previously did not exist. Likewise, bandwidth acceleration is also taking priority as Midvale recognizes that broadband solutions are the new lifeline for residential and business customers.
“We have been very pleased with the Actelis BBA,” said Dennis Farrington, Arizona operations manager at Midvale. “The BBA has made a huge difference in our business, enabling us to reach our longer-loop customers, and the product has been very reliable. Midvale has used other DSL extender devices, but the Actelis BBA is by far the best.”
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC (News - Alert)) set specific bandwidth goals last year, dictating that broadband solutions must support 4Mbps downstream and 1Mbps upstream. The Actelis BBA meets this goal, while also offering simple plug-and-play installation so new customers can deliver triple-play broadband solutions to generate new revenue streams and increase customer loyalty.
“The proliferation of technologies that has allowed us to remain connected at all times by utilizing broadband connections have been a powerful catalyst for economic development,” commented Vivek Ragavan, president and CEO of Actelis.
“The relevance that broadband can play in our daily lives should not be limited to geography or socio-economic status. Whether it is access to important health care and other critical services or communicating with friends and family through the Internet’s social aspects, Actelis understands what end users want from their broadband experience. We also know how to accelerate wide-scale broadband adoption for carriers and, collectively, this is why we developed the BBA
