Benefits of Fiber Internet

Fiber,” is a broadband connection that can reach speeds of up to 940 Megabits per second (Mbps), with low lag time. A fiber optic network uses tiny strands of glass, each as thin as a hair, to transmit beams of light over great distances.  Those beams carry unprecedented amounts of data—much more than cable or DSL—directly to homes and businesses.

“Fiber,” is a broadband connection that can reach speeds of up to 940 Megabits per second (Mbps), with low lag time.

-Fiber Internet provides Internet access using fiber-optic cable rather than traditional copper cable or satellite signals. Fiber-optic lines consist of up to hundreds of small strands of glass or plastic cables, each about 1/10th the size of a single human hair. Each strand of fiber cable transmits data using pulses of light that travel at speeds approaching the speed of light.

-FTTH offers faster connection speeds and nearly unlimited bandwidth capacity at roughly the same cost. Fiber can carry 10x more data than copper, the primary material used in digital subscriber lines (DSLs).

Bandwidth

The maximum amount of data transmitted over an internet connection in a given amount of time. Bandwidth is often mistaken for internet speed when it's actually the volume of information that can be sent over a connection in a measured amount of time – calculated in megabits per second (Mbps).

-Fiber can also transmit information 400x further and 10x faster than copper wires

Fiber-optic Internet offers a much higher bandwidth capacity than satellite or broadband, since the frequencies over which data can travel long distances are much higher for fiber cables than for copper or satellite transmissions.

Incredible bandwidth allowing much more data to flow through the lines than any other technology.
