Finley Recognized as Fiber-to-the-Home Top 100

August 3, 2016 By Finley Engineering in

For the seventh consecutive year Finley Engineering has been named to the Broadband Communities Fiber-to-the-Home Top 100. According to the magazine, “Building a Fiber-Connected World” is the tagline of Broadband Communities magazine, and each year the FTTH Top 100 list recognizes organizations that lead the way in this arena. During the last year, the “game of gigs” that began with Google Fiber’s Kansas City deployment continued apace, and the editors had plenty of Top 100 candidates to choose from.”

The opportunities that fiber networks bring to communities of all sizes is something Finley Engineering is acutely aware of. Our goal is to work with organizations passionate about providing their end-users with fiber connections to improve their quality of life and economic opportunities. Our experience ensures you have the information you need early in the decision-making process all the way through to lighting up your fiber connections.

We specialize in end-to-end engineering consulting, project management, strategic planning, right-of-way and land services. At Finley, we don’t use one set of plans for all clients. We pay attention to the goal of your project, the internal parameters and outside forces to work within. We create solutions uniquely generated for each project. From over 60 years, Finley Engineering has focused on delivering a high level of service and expertise. Our 95% client satisfaction scores are some of the highest in the industry.

SELECTION CRITERIA

In selecting the FTTH Top 100, the editors looked for organizations that advance the cause of fiber-based broadband by

  • Deploying networks that are large or ambitious, have innovative business plans or are intended to transform local economies or improve communities’ quality of life
  • Supplying key hardware, software or services to deployers
  • Introducing innovative technologies with game-changing potential, even if they have not yet been commercially deployed
  • Providing key conditions for fiber builds, such as early stage support or demand aggregation.

To be listed among the FTTH Top 100, an organization may be based anywhere in the world but must do business in North America. Except for broadband service providers, which are inherently local, we give preference to organizations that serve national rather than local markets. Overall size is unimportant, as is corporate form – in addition to for-profit companies, the list includes municipal providers, a telephone cooperative and several nonprofits, some of which include both public and private partners.
