Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) owns and operates a fiber-optic network in the greater Holland area. This system was installed to improve communications between electric substations, and has expanded to service the local community. The growth of HBPW's network has allowed HBPW to provide service to school districts, small and large businesses, municipal offices, medical offices and community service organizations. The HBPW provides three service options: Internet Transport/Delivery, Private Network, and Dark Fiber.
Private Network Option
The Private Network option provides a wide-area Ethernet service interface to connect two or more locations at bandwidths ranging from 0.5 to 2000 Mbps. The handoff can be provided across copper or fiber depending on customer needs. Installation costs, setup fees, and bandwidth rates are available upon request.
Internet Transport/Delivery Option
HBPW can connect your business to one of the Internet Service Providers that we partner with. This service can replace local T-1 circuits, DSL, or Cable Modems. Installation costs, setup fees, and bandwidth rates are available upon request.
Dark Fiber Option
HBPW offers the option of leasing dedicated fiber strands on a monthly basis, with an aggregate minimum of $1,000 per month. This option allows the customer to design, install and maintain the electronic equipment required. Installation costs, setup and lease rates are available upon request.
