Approach in suburban areas
Very high bit rate (100 Mbit/s) for groups of houses, at low cost :
- Your municipality adopts the FibTic approach.
- Inhabitants of a housing estate or of a hamlet, you settle a group or an association and deploy the optical fibre within a well delimited private area ; you do it on your own but with the municipal support and the one from FibTic.
- Again with a municipal support, your group contracts with a local fibre operator (ideally a local public institution - see here) in order to connect your backyard network to their rural network at a manhole or cabinet, either existing or created on this occasion. The latter by the way can be used to connect other backyard networks.
- As a result, this situation makes it easier for the service operators to come, since they don't have to cope with the last mile(s) connection, particularly costly in terms of civil works.
- Individually, you retain the freedom to choose competitively your prefered operator on an application basis.
Approach in rural areas
FibTic has also developed an original method for deploying fibre at low cost in rural areas. It relies on the involvement of farmers and of their local institutions ; moreover, this activity adds value to the farmers' day to day life.
This method aims at connecting SMEs and rural homes, even isolated, at affordable costs, i.e hardly higher than those observed downtown.
