What is Fiber Internet?


Fiber-optic internet, also referred to as fiber internet or simply “fiber,” is a broadband internet connection featuring internet speeds of up to 940 Megabits per second (Mbps) and with low lag (latency) time. Utilizing fiber-optic cable, fiber-optic internet can transmit internet signals and data through a fiber-optic network at internet speeds that nearly match the speed of light. In addition, fiber-optic cables are not as susceptible to severe weather conditions as other types of traditional copper cables, which helps minimize outages. It also resists electrical interference effectively.

Why Fiber-Optic Internet is Much Faster (and Better) Than Cable Internet.

When looking at your best options for internet plans and internet access, fiber-optic connections provide fast speeds and unmatched fiber service that cable internet and satellite internet just can’t match. Why? Well for starters: fiber-optic uses strands of glass and glass fibers (that are about the size of human hair) to provide you with home internet that:

  • Transmits light signals through fiber-optic glass, nearly at the speed of light

  • Will give you much faster symmetrical download speeds and upload speeds than cable internet, that can handle even large files with ease

  • Is superior to antiquated cable connections that use slower electrical signals

  • Gives you seamless online gaming and video chatting with friends and family 

  • Can download a 2-hour HD movie in seconds, compared to waiting 30 minutes or more over a 20 Mbps traditional internet service

The end result? A faster fiber-optic internet home network for you that offers fast data transmission and reliable internet.
