So how do telecommunication giants like Horizen, carrying the weight of their past, gracefully leap into the future while ensuring seamless service for their existing family of customers?

Misty Tuttle, General Manager of Business Operations, at Horizen and Breese Roller, Regional Sales Manager at Clearfield along with Kevin Kress, Applications Engineer at Clearfield, and Lee Rutherford, Manager of FTTP Design and Architecture at Horizon provide their insights into this balancing act.

They answer our calls, and they provide solutions that we need quickly to give our customers the best experience we can. I think that any potential customer looking for a true partner in deploying next-level technology in towns all across this country. I think Clearfield is a clear choice.” she said.
