Moving Forward with Fiber

December 2022 On August 2, 2022, the people of Holland voted to make a community-investment in a high-speed fiber optic broadband network that will be available to every address in the city.

What is Fiber?

Most internet services currently operate on copper wire cable networks that transfer information using electrical signals. Fiber optic networks transfer information through strands of glass in a cable using the invisible light spectrum. Each cable has multiple strands, so like cars on a highway, fiber can support more traffic at higher speeds, allowing information to quickly move on and off the road.
