Your internet speeds depend on how much data the network can transfer. A fiber-optic cable has approximately 10,000* times more bandwidth than a traditional metal cable.
Faster Upload/Download Speeds
Fiber cables are capable of carrying exponentially more bandwidth than traditional metallic cables, which enables faster upload/download speeds. altafiber currently offers download speeds up to 2 Gig, and upload speeds up to 1 Gig.
Fiber-optic cables transmit data via pulses of light along glass or plastic fibers. This method is more efficient over long distances and less susceptible to interference from electromagnetic signals than copper wiring.
