Eastern Oregon Telecom has selected Huawei GPON gear to bring a gigabit broadband network to some 8,000 rural homes and businesses in Hermiston, OR, and the surrounding area. EOT expects to complete initial deployment of its gigabit network in the second half of 2015, with underground fiber deployment occurring in 2016. The new network deployment will include the commercial corridor in the cities of Umatilla, Irrigon and Boardman, as well as Hermiston.

The fiber rollout is also intended to provide new services, including VoIP, high-speed Internet and IPTV, to the community.
