Long gone are the days of tieing up your phone line, listening for the tones and beeps and waiting to get connected to the internet. Fiber. It’s the future of internet technology, and for good reason. But do you really know why fiber is so innovative? Fiber optic internet technology uses the power of light passed through fiber optic cables at very high speeds to connect your computer. Fiber optic cable, rather than copper lines used with DSL and cable, allows the signal to be sent at a more maintained speed across distances, making fiber internet much faster than other forms of broadband.
