We've developed a unique network that performs outstandingly. Now is the time to invest and replicate this success in other territories.
Interfast Panama is the new alternative in telecommunication services in Panama, offering the first 100% FTTX network with XGPON technology capable of providing speeds of up to 10 Gbps = 10,000 Mbps. We cater to Residential and Commercial customers, aiming to take a significant market share in the next 3 years.
The timing in Panama is perfect, a $1B market demanding better service and higher bandwidth, which InterFast can efficiently provide.
Our technology is passive, which means that it is not affected by power outages or fluctuations. This is a special advantage in Panama, a country where electrical fluctuations and rain and flooding is a constant. InterFast has earned the reputation of being the only operator that keeps working during black outs, which is why customers choose InterFast over the incumbent operators.
InterFast is in continued expansion, and have managed to do so with its own crews. We receive thousands of requests from customers demanding to have our services in their area. Our system directs our deployment based on service petitions, so we are sure to go where we have customers.
InterFast has experienced steady growth in both sales and subscription rates, and we have become a reference for good and reliable service in Panama. Our aim is to be able to export our know-how as we expand to other territories.
Puerto Rico has roughly the same population and size as Panama. However, its telecommunication market is estimated USD 2 Billion, twice as big as Panama. The existent telecommunications infrastructure in Puerto Rico was deficient, even before Hurricanes Irma and Maria, ravaged the island. As Javier Rua, former President of the Puerto Rican telecommunications authority Junta Reglamentadora de Telecomunicaciones (JRT) puts it:
Before Irma and Maria, telecom companies found ways to provide high-speed internet using “ancient networks of copper around the island”.... ” These “ancient networks” were ingenious feats of engineering for their time, but they were susceptible to the sharp winds and rain of the 2017 hurricane season
After the devastating effects of the hurricanes, the attention of local and Federal Government has been focused on rebuilding utilities and communications infrastructure, with the JRT pushing operators to put their lines underground. In fact, the FCC has approved millions in grants to telecommunications companies to build better infrastructure.
InterFast infrastructure and technology is a right fit for Puerto Rico. Our underground fiber lines and passive technology, make our lines resistant to weather conditions, therefore, not being affected by flooding. Our XGPON technology allows for continued services even during electrical power outages.
InterFast is ready to contribute and bring better service to Puerto Rico. We have the team, technology and will power to make it happen.
The United States telecommunications market is expected to reach 1.3 Trillion in 2020* Broadband being a significant segment, especially now with the increase in demand for higher speeds.
The Giga bit services now available are offered in limited areas, hence, opening a market niche to new operators willing and able to offer this type of technology. Afterall, "Consumer Are Choosing Services with Higher Speeds." US Telecom, the Broadband Association
InterFast with is 10,000 Mbps = 10 Gbps capability, can take advantage of the consumer demand in the United States for higher bandwidth, and GigaFast services. The timing is perfect, as evidenced by a market eager to experience the "internet of things", and a regulator willing to facilitate fiber-deployment. Additionally, the US office would be the base interconnection point for phone services between other subsidiaries/affiliates and international carriers.
On 2018, the FCC signed an order aimed at facilitating the installation of new networks by broadband providers, which is..." another important step... to reform regulatory processes that are unnecessary and stand in the way of technology transitions"*
In the digital era, where demand for higher speeds is constantly increasing, Interfast 10 Gbps = 10,000 Mbps can successfully tackle the Gigabit segment.
