OVERVIEW LightMyBuilding.org is a division of Veritivity, a telecommunications services firm that helps local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to choose the best buildings to “light up” with new fiber optic Internet service.
We help Internet Service Providers to handle the customer aspect of this process by determining how many, and what kind of customers in the building would be interested in learning more, so that fiber optic Internet service might be provisioned in their building.
PROVIDER BENEFITS The decisions for ISP providers surrounding “lighting a building” are:
Installation expense - running fiber from a providers regional IP backbone to a specific endpoint such as an office building is extremely expensive. It involves building permits, trenching the fiber, installing fiber multiplexing equipment, gaining permissions from building owners and others, as well as detailed engineering diagrams and public service works.
Customer interest - without knowing there are actually customers willing to buy the fiber Internet service that could be provisioned in a particular building, providers are hesitant to spend the large dollars required to install the service to begin with. By understanding specific customer needs within the building, how much bandwidth is required, what customer applications would benefit from fiber Internet provisioning, the chances that a provider will “light a building” are much better.
The number of customers available in the building – obviously the more potential customers that are interested, the more likely a particular provider will light the building.
Other factors - such as customers willingness to sign up for services ahead of time to justify lighting the building, educating customers about extended installation intervals involved with lighting the building, and numerous other considerations.
GET INVOLVED - HELP US BRING FIBER TO YOUR BUILDING! By completing the form below you are simply acknowledging you would like to learn more about fiber-optic Internet access in your area. Giving us your information is not a commitment to buy or entertain any proposals, it’s simply a way for us to understand how many people are interested in your particular building by gathering the data for the local providers we work with.
After we have gathered the information from the respondents in your building that are willing to share contact information with us, we may give you a call to ascertain what your needs are with regard to the specific fiber solutions that are available. We can even do a complimentary “billing audit” to compare what your current internet and voice services costs are, compared with what they would be if new fiber is installed in your building.
We are interested in helping you understand the fiber options available for your building, once the providers we work with make a commitment to come into the building based on our work. So you’ll be able to continue dealing with us as your telecommunications consultant, as we bring fiber into the building and make sure it’s provisioned to your satisfaction.
