GETTING FIBER RAN THROUGH OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

I am the Hoa President of a a small upscale community on Spencers Way in  Smoke Rise, GA. All we seem to be able to get is Comcast here, we would love to have a different option, what would it take for you'll to run fiber through here to get us a better high speed option? I think our neighbors deserve an option with fiber to the house, and I am trying my best to make it happen. Please let me know how I can inquire about this to get the wheels churning. Thanks Nick

Spencers Mountain Hoa President.

You can start by filling out the form on this web page but AT&T decides where fiber goes in their best business interest. Being a member of the HOA is a first step up the process but no guarantee.

Does ATT currently provide ANY hardwired internet speed to your addresses ? 

If yes, best speed available?

Toal number of addresses in the desired area of HOA?

ATT still has 3.5 years left of the second (5) year expansion that is scheduled to add 15 million residential addresses within the 21 state footprint. 

At an average of 3 million per year reached the highest priority will be new construction (greenfield) of apartments, condos, single family subdivision.

Next on the list is the current FTTN locations with internet speeds of 25, 50, 75 or 100 depending on facilities and copper distance from neighborhood fiber VRAD.

Lowest will be addresses with 18 or less, some of these areas have been upgraded but lower on the list.

Then looking at population density / units… an area of 600, 400, 200, 100, 60 or 40. If costs are the similar makes most sense to spend limited deployment dollars that can reach the most addresses in the shortest distance. This may explain why almost 25% of residential fiber is Multi Dwelling Units (MDU), think 20 buildings with 16 units per building (320 addresses) versus 200 home subdivision or 40 unit upscale (large lots?) neighborhood.

Having a 200 unit complex on edge of upscale area may help to expand fiber to the upscale area.

If money no object could order dedicated business fiber, pricing starts at $550 per month with 10/10 connection, higher speeds available at higher monthly cost.

Just my thoughts…

edit… by 2026 30 million residential fiber is about 50% of all hardwired addresses within footprint. Meaning half will have fiber, have will not. If ATT adds a 3rd 5 year buildout (2026-2030) at similar 15 million means 75% of addresses will have fiber in 2030.
