FAQ

What is a fiber connection

Fiber optic cable works by transporting light pulse signals and is less likely to be affected by external factors. Fiber optic cable can perform consistently for many decades. Electronic components at each end of a fiber connection can be easily upgraded to maintain and enhance reliability and performance throughout the long usable service life of the optical cable.

What does a fiber connection offer?

In an increasingly technological world, the average household has 7 – if not more – active connected devices. These devices may include smartphones, computers, tablets, and even home security systems. The more devices that you have connected to your home Internet connection, the more overall speed you need to support them. A high speed Internet connection will allow you and your loved ones to utilize your service to do the things you enjoy:

  • Streaming TV shows, movies, and video. With a high speed fiber connection, you can stream content at amazing speeds with little to no buffering or delays.
  • Video conferencing. Whether you are working from home or catching up with loved ones across the world, you need a reliable Internet connection and lightning-fast speeds. With a high-speed Internet connection, the frequent disconnects, frozen picture, and poor video quality are things of the past.
  • Downloading and uploading photos, videos, and files. Smartphones and cameras continue to improve their image quality, resulting in files that are larger and can take longer to upload to social media or download from an email. With fiber, these wait times are cut down to seconds.
  • Online Gaming. As online gaming grows in popularity, so has the need for an Internet connection that is incredibly fast and reliable. With our fiber connection, your gaming experience will be smoother with fewer delays and disconnects.

With our high speed fiber Internet service, you will be able to use multiple devices at once without sacrificing speed, efficiently work from home using the highest speeds available, stream your favorite shows, download videos, and upload photos with very little wait time.
