Fiber optic connections use light to transmit data, so signals travel at higher speeds and greater distances than any other connection. The bandwidth of fiber optic lines is capable of transmitting more data over longer distances than any other technology — more than cable or DSL.
Unlike traditional cable, Fiber Optic connections are dedicated and not shared with your neighbors, so your internet will be consistently fast with no slow downs.
Made of glass with an insulating core, fiber optic lines are immune to many of the environmental factors that can cause cable service interruptions. The reliability of fiber optics makes it a very good choice for businesses that require the internet to stay up and running.
Providing more bandwidth than we currently know what to do with, fiber optic technology will be the leading form of transmission for a long time to come.

Meet the Marquezes.
Searching for a new home, David and Leolie Marquez, along with their teenage children, were looking for the best of both worlds: great internet and rural living.
David teaches Sculpture in the Department of Art at Western Kentucky University in nearby Bowling Green, and Leolie does marketing for a global company, where she spends 70 percent of her day videoconferencing from home.
Their children, 14-year-old David and 12-year-old Gabriella, attend Greenwood High School and Drakes Creek Middle School, respectively. The two find themselves using the internet for homework research, as well as entertainment.
The search for somewhere near David’s university with the broadband capability for Leolie’s job, led them to Drakes Ridge, where NCTC had recently built fiber to the home access at the request of homeowners in the area.
As the first residents of the subdivision and the first to sign up for NCTC’s newly built fiber connection, the Marquezes are laying the foundation for what will be a well-connected community.

Due to the overwhelming response from the Claypool-Boyce area, NCTC is bringing high-speed fiber connections to Southeast Warren County, near the Allen County line. The Claypool-Boyce fiber build will be broken into three phases to accommodate the large area and great interest.
The engineering, design and staking for phase 1 will begin shortly. And with cooperation from the weather, both engineering and construction should take just a few months. NCTC will keep you updated as the timeline progresses.
You and your neighbors made this happen, and NCTC is excited to bring world-class fiber internet to your neighborhood. Expect a knock on your door soon regarding potential fiber placement.

Officials from NCTC and Stewart Richey gathered with contractors and members of the media for the the unveiling of a “Gig Neighborhood” sign Monday. The ceremony was held to welcome NCTC to Warren County and designate Drakes Ridge as the newest subdivision to have access to some of the fastest broadband speeds in the country.
A nationally certified Gig Capable Provider, NCTC will offer residents broadband internet, digital TV packages and voice over IP phone service. NCTC’s advanced internet connections are capable of speeds higher than those available in many of the nation’s largest cities — up to a gig, which is 1,000 megabits per second.
“We’ve been met with a tremendous response from people in Warren County who are excited about a reliable, lightning-fast fiber internet connection backed by the high level of customer service NCTC is known for,” says Nancy White, CEO of NCTC. Based in Lafayette, Tennessee, NCTC serves nearby Scottsville, Kentucky.
The company began work this summer building its advanced fiber network into Bowling Green in support of KentuckyWired, the state’s program focused on building a fiber backbone, or middle mile, across Kentucky.
