French Broad Crossing is unlike your typical Western North Carolina mountain community. In addition to the spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the majestic French Broad River, residents also have access to lightning-fast connectivity through fiber-optic service. While some prefer the peacefulness of disconnecting while at FBC, they will still have the comforts of modern-day living at their fingertips should they want or need it.
Thanks to French Broad Electric Membership Corporation and Jack Fisher, CEO & Founder of Preserve Communities, French Broad Crossing has a fiber optic line installed that provides residents internet service that’s as fast as any in the state.
How does French Broad Fiber provide a better internet experience?
- Reliability: Fiber’s main conductor is glass, which cannot generate electricity, so it is resistant to all sorts of interference and produces a connection of superior quality.
- Speed: Fiber redefines the “high-speed, low latency” experience. French Broad Fiber’s standard Fast Fiber service offers speeds of 25Mbps down and 25Mbps up, which is roughly 100 times faster than traditional dial-up and more than 5 times faster than basic DSL or cable packages. This isn’t any high-speed platform; it’s fiber-speed.
- Support: French Broad Fiber is backed by the same quality of support as French Broad Electric. Residents can call and talk to the FBEMC support staff. Employees are all based in Marshall, NC, so they take pride in supporting their friends, families and neighbors.
French Broad Crossing combines the privacy, solitude and natural beauty of a conservation community, with amenities, comforts, and conveniences you’re accustomed to in an urban area. Add to that the fact that Asheville is just minutes away, and you truly have the best of both worlds.
