OTTC Completes Fiber to the Home Build in Trumansburg, Interlaken, Ovid, Romulus, Phelps and Clifton Springs NY

Trumansburg, NY, July 6, 2020 – Ontario Trumansburg Telephone Companies (OTTC) is proud to announce that it has completed its 600 mile Fiber to the Home (FTTH) build in Phelps, Clifton Springs, Trumansburg, Romulus, Interlaken and Ovid, NY.  OTTC is also the first independent telephone company in Upstate New York to implement the new FlexNAP™ system from Corning, a leading innovator in materials science, into their FTTH build. This system allows for faster, more reliable fiber installation to both homes and businesses. As a result of its innovative fiber build, OTTC was awarded the FTTXcellence Award during the 2019 Fiber Connect conference.

OTTC’s new OTTC Blast router is being deployed to FTTH customers to provide them with the ultimate whole home wi-fi solution. This router gives the customer complete control of their network with the OTTC Smart Home app. This allows the customer to setup guest wi-fi, utilize parental controls, run speed tests, and manage their home network.

Paul Griswold, President and CEO of OTTC says, “We’re on the cutting edge of fiber technology, and our new OTTC Blast Router will provide customers with the most reliable whole home wi-fi solution.”

“Corning is excited to support OTTC’s most recent FTTH build, and proud that our pre-terminated solutions continue to deliver value in deployments across America,” noted Clark Kinlin, SVP of Corning Optical Communications. “OTTC’s willingness to innovate makes them the ideal partner for deploying next-generation solutions like FlexNAP. We’re looking forward to the countless benefits fiber connectivity will bring to the Ontario-Trumansburg community.”
