SERVICE SPOTLITE
The end-user now has several options for high bandwidth.  Options include “true” fiber,  circuit based fiber, and Ethernet First Mile (EFM).  True fiber is fiber that is run from a fiber optic network such as ACD’s to your building, either underground, above ground, or a combination of both.  True fiber theoretically has unlimited capacity to carry data, voice and video, and may be connected to your network via an Ethernet handoff.  ACD engineers, runs, splices and support fiber throughout Michigan.  Sometimes sold as "fiber", A T3 or DS3 is circuit based fiber provisioned similar to a T1 and has a bandwidth limit of 45Mbps.

Ethernet First Mile (EFM), a new DSL service from ACD is an excellent and cost effective choice for high bandwidth, up to 45Mbps.  EFM is a full duplex and symmetrical (same speed upload as download) DSL. Click here for more information about Ethernet First Mile Service: http://www.acd.net/efm.cfm
