OmniTel, Fiber, and You!
OmniTel is excited to bring Fiber-to-the Home (FTTH) technology to Carson! This technology will enable OmniTel customers to access speeds up to one Gigabit—that’s 1,000 Mbps, one hundred times faster than the national average. No more browsing like it’s 1999—FTTH brings the future to you.
During the installation process, OmniTel will construct a network of fiber optic cables that use light instead of electricity to carry a digital data signal. Fiber networks are known for offering outstanding reliability. Fiber is called future-proof because it will meet your communications needs for years (and years and years and years) to come. If you’re interested in getting Fiber from OmniTel for your home or business, click here! Let’s get this party started.

Frequently Asked Questions
ALL ABOUT FIBER
OmniTel Fiber is an exciting project to bring Fiber-to-the Home (FTTH) technology to homes and businesses in Carson. This fiber technology will provide speeds to fulfill all your needs now and into the future. During the fiber installation process, OmniTel Communications will construct a network of fiber optic cables that use light instead of electricity to carry a digital data signal.
Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) is the broadband delivery model that brings fiber optic cables all the way to the home or business. We will bury brand new optical lines from our equipment into your home or business, completely bypassing the copper network in place. Lasers and receivers at your home and in our equipment will transmit your data at the upload/download speed of your choice
A fiber connection will provide you with access to virtually unlimited bandwidth capacity and internet speed, enabling you to enjoy a better experience when you’re doing things like streaming, gaming, using cloud storage, video chatting, and more. Fiber also increases service reliability and stability. FTTH can even increase the value of a home by several thousand dollars and increase the amount renters are willing to pay!
You’ve heard the phrase “the speed of light,” right? Fiber-optic cables contain optical fiber, which are hair-thin strands of glass specially designed to trap and transmit light pulses. Unlike copper, optical fiber can carry data for great distances without signal loss or interference. Optical fiber can also transmit signals in both directions simultaneously—allowing you to upload and download at extremely high speeds.
PHASE 1: PRE-REGISTRATION AND SIGN UP
OmniTel’s goal is to build out and provide services to Carson as efficiently as possible. Our pre-registration form lets us collect the required information from interested residents quickly. The information we collect will not be shared with other companies.
Nope! The interest form is merely a tool for us to identify those residents who would like to be contacted immediately to start the conversation about Fiber and/or to learn more about the services OmniTel offers.
The Pre-registration phase will remain open until construction is completed in Carson. By pre-registering, you’ll also get the standard installation for FREE—a value of more than $300!
PHASE 2: INSTALLATION
While crews are in your area, OmniTel will cover the cost of construction up to your premises—you will not be charged. However, if you do not pre-register and decide later that you want fiber (after the crews have left your area), there will be an installation charge. That’s why pre-registration make good sense—and dollars! The included standard installation is a value of more than $300.
Buried fiber is protected from elements such as fire, windstorms, and ice storms. It provides a much more reliable network for our customers.
We’ll do everything we can to make sure to minimize any disturbance and will promptly restore your property as close to its original condition.
We’ll install a Network Interface Device (NID) on the outside of your home or business, a fiber jack, and an optical network terminal (ONT). The ONT contains electronics that terminate the fiber-optic cable and converts the signals of light back into usable internet and telephone signals. The ONT can optionally include basic Wi-Fi or simply hand off internet to a personal router.
PHASE 3: INTERNET, PHONE, AND TELEVISION SERVICES
OmniTel will immediately offer internet, phone, and television services. Initially, we’ll offer residential and business customers speeds up to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps).
All OmniTel services are offered individually, so you can pick and choose to your heart’s content.
Absolutely! We will handle the details of transferring your current phone number. Once the number is moved, your current provider will automatically be notified so they will stop billing you for the service.
