What Fiber Options Should You Consider?

Purchasing lit fiber service is an excellent option if you have a great local provider. Dark fiber is a very cost-effective, scalable solution, but is not available in all areas. Today, building your own fiber is also an option that can be funded by the FCC E-rate program provided that you can show that it’s the lowest cost option for your district.

Note: This tool only provides a comparison of relative costs of different fiber solutions. There are other factors that need to be considered when deciding whether self-construction is a good choice for your district, such as your team’s ability to manage a construction project and risk profile. We’d strongly advise that you to take into account all factors before deciding on any particular solution.
