Technology Will Disrupt Internet Service with True High-Speed Bandwidth that Aligns Results with Customer Satisfaction at a Fraction of the Cost
South Bend, IN – NFINET, an innovative fiber optic technology company, announced the deployment of a new way for homeowners to access, pay for, and receive true high-speed internet service without the throttled speeds, capped data, or poor customer service currently delivered by the industry. NFINET’s internet connection boasts verifiable symmetric 1Gb speeds directly to homes via a dedicated fiber optic strand directly to the property. What is more, NFINET’s customer support prides itself on friendly and thorough interactions.
NFINET is currently deploying its technology in Granger, IN for the Hills at St. Joe Farm development. Unlike traditional internet service that is shared by entire neighborhoods from the same line, NFINET’s technology is designed so the homeowner owns and controls their own distinctive, dedicated strand of fiber without sharing bandwidth.
“NFINET is founded on the belief that networks and customers aren’t yet aligned. A monthly repayment model discourages new investments and can create antagonistic sales relationships. NFINET can provide the highest quality customer service on top of the region’s fastest residential bandwidth because we build networks from scratch alongside our homeowner customers,” said Charles Florance, operations officer. “What is more, the homeowner is in complete control of their bandwidth—meaning no caps or throttling. The customer pays a one-time fee up front for the lifetime of the product and never pays anything again.”
This new internet service delivery model changes the way the service is paid for—and for how long. The fee for the fiber internet connection is paid upfront by the homeowner, thereby eliminating the often-fluctuating monthly internet bill. The one-time payment covers years of fee-free Gigabit internet service, all necessary equipment, and installation of the fiber cable connection to the home. NFINET is able to guarantee the lifetime of these installations in part because of the superior engineering quality delivered by Hexatronic, its supply partner.
“Fiber installations with Hexatronic products are engineered to last decades, and we fully warranty our complete end-to-end passive optical systems,” said Mark Turner of Hexatronic. “The microconduit architecture NFINET is using makes point-to-point dedicated fiber connections so much more feasible.”
The current internet service model shares bandwidth, so it slows the network down during peak usage and caps and tracks all user data. NFINET’s point-to-point network does not do that. The home’s dedicated fiber connects directly to the active electronics source and the optical signal is not split between multiple homes. NFINET is focused on the customer, and its unique system design is evidence of that philosophy. This model means the customer receives the newest technology in an honest, reliable, and superior way.
When connected with NFINET, each home is provided a Broadband Gateway unit made by EntryPoint Networks, the outfit behind the award-winning Ammon, Idaho network model.
“We’re excited to partner with NFINET to bring a new kind of broadband network to Northern Indiana,” said Jeff Christensen, EntryPoint’s chief executive officer. “NFINET’s decision to deploy Automated Open Access networks gives customers a real choice in an industry where true competition is almost non-existent.”
The Gateway is equipped with four ethernet ports, two USB ports, and two small form-factor pluggable ports. The processing power of the Gateway unit means faster speeds, low latency, and an optimized user experience.
“In 2020, U.S. households had 30 percent more bandwidth usage than they did in 2019,” explained Ben Miller, chief technology officer of NFINET. “This need for increased bandwidth is primed to increase, which means the network infrastructure must be fast out of the gate, and it must be both scalable and upgradeable as the need for data usage and management continues to grow. This is where NFINET’s technology and services shine.”
NFINET’s services and Gateway unit allow for quick and easy upgrades as demand increases because the supporting technology infrastructure is already there on day one. The transmission lines are paid for and the network is already up.
“We designed NFINET to stay ahead of the data appetite, and our agile, modular technology partners are a key differentiator in that mission,” says Miller.
Irish Realty and The Village Development, LLC are partnering to bring NFINET connections to the new Hills at St. Joe Farms housing development. This project is a perfect showcase for the region’s highest-speed internet service and how it can be deployed in 21st-century communities.
“The Hills is the first major development in Granger with its own sewer and water utilities,” said JP Weiglos of The Village. “Modern homebuyers want the kind of convenience and reliability that comes with forward-thinking infrastructure. NFINET delivers that with its distinctive internet service, so it was a perfect collaboration.”
New residents of the Hills can enjoy 30 years of fee-free service with their NFINET purchase. NFINET plans to offer 20-year and 5-year service agreements to other areas.
A notable aspect of NFINET’s technology is its inherent security. The physical infrastructure of the connection makes the signal nearly impossible to intercept or tamper with. That leads to enhanced privacy for its users and prevents prioritizing other data ahead of the user. The network is designed to allow for specific virtual private connections that meet strict personal privacy, as well as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) and the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy (FERPA) requirements. This adds further value and peace of mind to a community as it explores new ways to use its improved connections.
