JetBroadband Revs Up to 1 GHz

JetBroadband is speeding up its network with the installation of new 1-gigahertz gear from C-COR.

The 1-GHZ access products will expand the capacity of JetBroadband’s network in its Rustburg, Va., system without requiring it to install additional fiber-optic lines.

The gear includes C-COR's 1-GHz trunk and bridger amplifiers and line extenders, as well as a headend platform with the industry's first 1-GHz coarse-wave-division-multiplexing forward-path transmitter.

With the boosted bandwidth, JetBroadband plans to expand its digital and high-speed-Internet offerings; to roll out HDTV, video-on-demand and digital-video-recorder services; and, in the future, to offer telephone service.

Rustburg-based JetBroadband provides services in Virginia and West Virginia. It was founded in 2004 by former Helicon Cable Communications executives David M. Baum, Dan Nofs and John Brinker.
