Smithville, TX (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
LiveAir Networks, one of Central Texas’ most dynamic fiber and microwave network operators, today said their 100% fiber to the home network featuring the fastest Internet available in Bastrop and Fayette Counties will be lit in the month of December.
The initial deployment will be in both cities based on consumer demand. In December, consumers will not only immediately have access to access at 1Gbps, also have access to LiveAir’s high-definition Voice offerings and managed home services via Fiber.
“Fiber-based internet has traditionally been limited to urban areas, such as Verizon’s FIOS, AT&T U-Verse, and Google Fiber. Our rural communities are getting bypassed at their gain for economic development and talent recruitment,” said James W. Breeden, LiveAir’s CEO and Founder. “It is our hope that by starting our FTTH project in these two core cities in Eastern Central Texas, that we kickstart a new chapter in these areas’ economic development.”
The first phase deployment is only the beginning. LiveAir plans to expand availability of LiveAir Fiber at 1Gbps to more residents and small businesses in 2014. Which areas get Fiber first will depend on the number of signups received at LiveAir’s website, http://www.liveair.net.
LiveAir will feed these new 1Gbps to the home networks with its new Texas DWDM fiber backbone network that it announced in September.
Breeden continues, “When we made the commitment to our long-haul infrastructure, we knew we had started something special. Bringing 1Gbps to the home, powered by our own optical backbone, is something special we are very excited about.”
LiveAir has been disrupting the broadband markets in its Eastern Central Texas markets since 2004. Today, the company serves residential and business customers from Austin to Houston, Bryan to Victoria. The company started as a wireless-only Internet Service Provider (ISP), and today features a MPLS-powered fiber and microwave network stretching across thousands of square miles of Texas serving over 30,000 users’ daily Internet and networking needs. LiveAir is a member of numerous local and national organizations including WISPA, the Wireless Internet Service Providers’ Association.
