announces that Greenfield Communications
has selected its award-winning VoIP system as the underlying digital voice provider for its Master Planned Residential Communities. Families living in Greenfield communities have had access to GlobalTouch VoIP as of July 2007,
Recognized as the largest privately held Fiber to the Home communications provider in the United States, Greenfield Communications provides turnkey FTTH solutions for developers of new master planned residential communities. The company has currently turned up ten FTTH projects with more than 5,000 customers, is actively designing and constructing eleven additional projects (representing over 75,000 homes), and has secured twenty-two more FTTH projects representing over 200,000 homes.
“According to In-Stat research, the worldwide VoIP market was swelled by 34 million new subscriptions in 2006. As ‘wired’ communities continue to sprout across the country, such as those developed by Greenfield, it’s no surprise that domestic consumers continue to embrace VoIP and its many benefits,” said Gregory O. Welch, CEO, GlobalTouch Telecom. “What is truly important to note, is that as an industry, we are barely scratching the surface in regard to consumer market penetration. By 2011, In-Stat predicts the consumer VoIP market will total nearly $44 billion worldwide. Recognized as the ‘Gold Standard’ in VoIP service, we look forward to working with innovators such as Greenfield, and to achieving our shared goal of spreading quality digital voice and video to individuals worldwide.”
