What's happening? 
LISCO was awarded approximately $13 million in loans from the RUS (Rural Utilities Service) to install high speed broadband technology via Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) to every home and business in Fairfield, Iowa. Over this optical fiber infrastructure, LISCO now delivers television, internet, and phone services, all of superior quality and better value than any competitor. Fairfield residents with fiber optic connections enjoy a whole new level of telecommunication services, equal to or better than any city in the United States.

What’s optical fiber?
Optical fiber is the new American standard for the most advanced high speed broadband telecommunication technology. Long, fine strands of glass carry information on beams of light. Compared to metallic wire, optical fiber carries thousands of times more information. Since it uses light, not electrical energy, it is not susceptible to lightning or "cross talk" interference between wires in the same cable. It’s inherently protected from power surges, static, noise, and hum. It’s also more secure. Conversations on fiber are immune to electronic eavesdropping. And it’s reliable. Unlike metal, optical fiber doesn't corrode. A communication system based on optical fiber is much easier to maintain.

What’s high speed broadband FTTP?
FTTP stands for Fiber-to-the-Premise. In the U.S., optical fiber already connects many towns and cities. But within the towns, the connection to the homes and businesses is via old, limited copper-wire technology dating back to 1876. LISCO is replacing this old, out of date technology with strands of fiber running to every home and business in Fairfield. Experts say developing this kind of high speed broadband infrastructure is critical for America to stay competitive in the global economy.
