It’s no secret – the speed and capacity of fiber-based super-fast Internet will soon be a game-changer in Jasper homes and businesses. But did you know that Smithville Fiber will do far more than just connect your home or business to the Internet? Smithville’s fiber-driven StreamingTV, voice and additional services can improve most of the communication and entertainment services you use today, using incredible gigabit performance and fiber’s reliability.
All these services are made possible by the partnership of Smithville Fiber and the city of Jasper in bringing fiber-optic infrastructure to the Jasper community. Once all the new fiber is turned on, Jasper will be in the TOP 5% of connected cities in the United States.
Why is having a high ranking important to Jasper?
“Gigabit communities are empowered communities” In a 2014 study* of 51 communities, the Fiber to the Home Council Americas found that gigabit services added as much 1.1% to the economies of the 14 communities that had invested in it, resulting in an approximate $1.4 billion additional GDP when gigabit broadband became widely available. The financial impact is wonderful but you may ask, “How does gigabit fiber empower a community?” The answer is in multiple ways, including the direct effect of infrastructure investment and increased expenditures, as well as shifts in economic activity such as job creation, occupational changes and productivity gains. The true empowerment is that communities with widely available gigabit access are gaining control over the factors that shape the lives of their residents, businesses and institutions.
Closer to “home”, having fiber in your neighborhood can increase home value by over $5,000 on a $300,000 home. Gigabit fiber has increased home values as much as 7%** – Gigabit speed makes a difference.
