BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 16 /PRNewswire/ — Momentum, a division of Momentum Telecom, today announced a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) initiative for new master planned communities via a comprehensive digital community platform (CDCP). Through partnerships with real estate developers, Momentum is providing customers in master planned communities with complete digitally- equipped homes and businesses. Without the hassle of installation after moving, the homes will feature move-in ready access to advanced services, including video, voice, data and security services, as well as dedicated local community intranet sites.
Momentum works in conjunction with residential and mixed-use real estate developers of new master planned communities to readily equip all homes and businesses with the infrastructure necessary for advanced fiber services, giving developers a key competitive advantage while offering consumers a move- in ready, cost-effective communication suite. Momentum’s first FTTP partnership is with the Creekside of Auburn community, marking the Alabama city’s first FTTP buildout.
“FTTP is going to be a key technology that will allow consumers to take full advantage of advanced services, including HDTV,” said Vince Vittore, senior analyst at Yankee Group. “While many large-scale projects by incumbents are focused on building out fiber to existing homes in their coverage areas, there is a tremendous opportunity for CLECs to tap into the new planned community market.”
Momentum is initially targeting new communities with at least 2,000 homes in the Southeast for its FTTP offering. Because the company is working hand- in-hand with developers on communities still in the construction phase, Momentum’s pure fiber buildouts have minimal effect on home and neighborhood development projects. In addition to added services, customers may also see a $4,000-8,000 increase in property values due to the built-in nature of fiber being directly connected to their future-ready homes.
“With our new FTTP offering, Momentum is providing our customers not only the most advanced fiber network that will accommodate emerging technologies without additional infrastructure installation, but also reliability levels and customer service that ensure one point of contact and increased personalization,” states Alan Creighton, president and CEO of Momentum.
Along with Momentum’s advanced communication and entertainment service offerings, these new FTTP communities can each have access to dedicated local intranet sites at no added cost. These tools will provide community residents with the latest dedicated information, which could range from sports and neighborhood events to postings from police and neighborhood organizations.
Momentum, a division of Momentum Telecom, is a Birmingham-based competitive service provider that offers a comprehensive digital community platform (CDCP) with fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) for new master planned communities. Momentum is providing end users in planned communities with complete digitally-equipped homes featuring immediate access to advanced video, voice, data, and security services, as well as a dedicated community intranet site.
