Washington, DC, October 8, 2004--A group of progressive communities from across the nation announced today the establishment of a not-for-profit organization headquartered in Washington, DC, Fiber Optic Communities of the United States (FOCUS), to educate consumers on the life-enhancing benefits of optical access networks.

"Our goal is to inform homeowners and businesses about the advantages of living and working in a fiber optic community," said Max R. Kipfer, founder and president of FOCUS. "Fiber networks are changing the way people live. Telecommuting, distance learning, and future in-home medical applications are now a reality in these communities. Buy a new home without fiber and you are missing a tremendous quality of life amenity that will soon be the standard. FOCUS will help spread the knowledge about fiber communities."

As of April 2004 there were 128 fiber communities in the United States, according to market research firm Render, Vanderslice and Associates of Tulsa, OK.

FOCUS will hold an official launch event from 9:30 � 10:30 a.m. EST, October 25, 2004 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Attendance may be reserved online at www.CommunitiesInFocus.org or by calling (202) 223-6287.
