Travel at the speed of light
Data is sent as light signals through glass fiber optic cables which are thinner than a human hair.
Faster upload and download speeds
Fiber is able to offer faster upload and download speeds and is transmitted on a dedicated line. This allows for more consistent and reliable speeds than cable.
Durable and resistant
Fiber is less likely to go down during a power outage and is resistant to signal interference such as electric lines.
Better for the planet
Fiber-optic cables use much less energy to transmit data than metal cables do.
