Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Service Registration

ACD Gigabit Ethernet service, provides speeds up to 1000mb/s up and down; far surpassing other technologies for raw capacity. Each and every fiber customer is professionally monitored from our Network Operation Command Center for maximum reliablity.

Compared to other fiber providers, we have a very deep backbone network, comprising of several layers of core MPLS switches and Routers. The fundamental difference betwen fiber providers and thier reliablity is the underlying network architechture. ACD uses Cisco Routers and Switches to provide this service, you can see who our network technology partners are here.
