HICKORY, NC -- Corning Cable Systems, an industry-leading manufacturer of fiber optic and copper communications network infrastructure solutions, announces Pulte Homes as the charter member of the Corning Connected Community™ Program.

Corning Cable Systems developed the Corning Connected Community Program to bring the benefits of optical fiber to homeowners everywhere by assisting homebuilders and community developers in building fiber optic infrastructure into their plans. As the first member of the Corning Connected Community Program, Pulte Homes – one of the largest homebuilders in the United States – illustrates its commitment to building truly state-of-the-art neighborhoods.

To qualify as a Corning Connected Community, each connected neighborhood must provide at least 5 Mb/s symmetrical service to all homes via fiber optic connection to the home. Pulte has selected PAXIO Inc. to design, install and service the fiber networks in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of today’s non-fiber broadband technologies, such as cable modem and DSL, offer asymmetrical service, meaning higher data rates downstream to the home and much slower speeds upstream from the home.

Corning Cable Systems will provide select new Pulte Home communities in the San Francisco Bay Area with its flexible, high-quality FTTH products and services, placing Pulte at the forefront of this technology and ensuring Pulte’s home-buying customers have the most advanced, reliable technology infrastructure to their home and within their community. Pulte’s partnership with PAXIO also includes construction of fiber to each community, providing virtually unlimited broadband today and into the future. In addition, Corning Cable Systems will help educate potential Pulte customers on the benefits of FTTH and the Corning Connected Community™ Program.
