As LightStream moves into a neighborhood to build fiber optics, we will go door-to-door on foot and also send direct mail to the effected properties. If you think you’ve been missed, please contact us.
That’s a good question! Right now, LightStream is engineering a new communications network in phases. Check back on our website for updates or call us at 574-278-7121.
Over our fiber optic network we offer very high-speed internet. Very soon you’ll also be able to receive digital voice. We are working to bring you video (television), too! We also offer long distance, computer repair, and more!
Don’t be fooled! It is true that most cable and DSL networks use some fiber. In these networks, the fiber carries the signal close enough to businesses and homes so that copper can carry it the rest of the way. The available bandwidth is far less than an all-fiber network.
The amount of bandwidth we need grows every year. The biggest growth has been for video – traditional TV, Internet-based video streaming, and video communications (Skype). This trend is expected to continue at least for the rest of this decade. Video requires not only extra bandwidth but also extra reliability. The smallest delay in
Bandwidth is the ability to carry information. The more bandwidth a network has, the more information it can carry. Networks with high bandwidth also tend to be more reliable because fewer bottlenecks disturb the flow of information.
Fiber optic cable is made up of thin strands of glass that carry information by transmitting pulses of light. An all-fiber network offers far more bandwidth, reliability, flexibility, security and longer economic life than copper, even though its price is comparable. Fiber can handle any bandwidth demand with ease. In fact, one bundle of
