Got Fiber?

How many devices in your home are connected to the Internet? 

Five years ago, it was simply your home computer. Today it includes a myriad of devices including TVs, cell phones, tablets, PCs, video game consoles and more. To efficiently and effectively run all of these devices simultaneously, homes must have access to fast Internet connections - and there is nothing faster than fiber-optics. 

What Is Fiber Optic Cable?
A fiber optic cable is made up of a bundle of pure glass threads, each about the diameter of human hair. Each thread or strand carries a data signal via light waves instead of electricity and is able to transmit information at virtually unlimited speed and capacity (higher bandwidth).

Advantages of Fiber For Your Home
  • Greater Speed and Increased Reliability - Today's homeowners are using technologies that require more and more bandwidth and fiber optic connections are the only medium that can keep up with the bandwidth demand.
  • Security - Voice and data transmissions via fiber are more secure then when they are sent over conventional copper cable connections. The use of fiber eliminates the ability to tap, or eavesdrop, through contact with the delivery system.

While some Internet providers claim they extend fiber into their networks, most don’t connect fiber directly into homes. Other competitors have legacy coaxial and copper networks mixed with sporadic fiber connections.
