What is FiberNet?
FiberNet is our new fiber optic phone and high speed Internet service. It utilizes Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) technology. FTTP refers to the use of fiber optic cables to carry digital information directly to homes and businesses. It gives you virtually unlimited bandwidth capability, and it is the best technology on the market today.
Fiber optic Internet is an Internet connection that transfers data fully or partially via fiber optic cables. “ Fiber” refers to. the thin glass wires inside the larger protective cable. “Optic” refers to the way the type of data transferred – light signals.
What makes fiber internet so fast?
Internet speed depends on how much data the infrastructure can handle. The traditional copper wires used by DSL and cable internet were originally intended to transmit voice only, so they’re limited in the amount of data they can handle.
In contrast, fiber optic lines transfer data using modulated light instead of electricity, which gives them much higher bandwidth capacity. Fiber internet connections work at speeds up to 1 gigabit per second—literally 100 times faster than those old copper wire connections. Simply put, you cannot ask for anything better than fiber internet for gaming or streaming high-quality video.
