The Ponderosa network reaches nearly 95% of the areas we serve. Broadband includes several high-speed transmission technologies such as: Digital Subscriber Line (DSL): DSL is a wireline transmission technology that transmits data faster over traditional copper telephone lines already installed to homes and businesses. DSL-based broadband provides transmission speeds ranging from 3 to 25 million bits per second (Mbps). The availability and speed of your DSL service may depend on the distance from your home or business to the closest Ponderosa facility. Fiber: Fiber optic technology converts electrical signals carrying data to light and sends the light through transparent glass fibers about the diameter of a human hair. Fiber transmits data at speeds far exceeding current DSL or cable modem speeds. Ponderosa offers fiber broadband in limited areas and we have plans to expand our fiber networks over the next several years. What are the benefits of broadband Internet access? 1. The most obvious benefit is the increase in speeds which will enhance your Internet experience.
