THE DEMAND FOR BANDWIDTH IS INCREASING EXPONENTIALLY IN THE MDU MARKET. Renter occupied households are now approaching 44 million (37%) in the US. In addition, there is rapid growth of townhome and high rise living space in urban markets, indicating a trend that will likely continue.
Many of these MDU’s are still limited to the aging copper lines coming into the facility. Given their location, fiber often times doesn’t make financial sense. Service providers traditionally focused on this space are under pressure to deliver a better end user experience while maintaining a competitive price point to their customers.
