The Future of Fiber is Here

WHY WE EXIST

The United States needs more broadband options, with only 8% on fiber lines.

The infrastructure for ultra-fast gigabit internet already exists. Flume is accelerating fiber-to-home deployment.Modern communication, remote work, and various applications need the high bandwidth fiber internet can provide. Until recently, fiber was perceived as too expensive or unnecessary due to lack of competition. Meanwhile, many cities already have fiber underground or on poles with unused capacity.

The US is lagging behind other nations in fiber availability.

Painless Deployment

Flume builds optical edge technology designed to service thousands of subscribers from a single-rack data center. The team partners with municipalities and wholesale providers to light unused dark fiber and deliver service. This approach allows for cost savings and expedited deployment timelines while maintaining the benefits of the fiber network, which can deliver up to 10-gigabit speeds.
