Fiber Versus Copper Cable

Fiber-optic internet offers significant advantages over copper Internet connectivity (DSL or cable) and is the gold standard of all internet connections—but fiber internet has limited availability in the United States. Many people still rely on outdated service or slower speeds that experiences frequent interruptions from bad weather and network congestion. Our fiber network supports faster speeds and improved reliability. How does it work? Unlike traditional copper cable, satellite, and DSL, fiber-optic internet uses thin cables made of glass or plastic fibers to transfer data as light signals, allowing data signals to travel faster. 

Let’s break this down.

  • Fiber internet is faster due to much lower latency (delay) compared to other technologies;
  • Fiber internet is less likely to go down during harsh weather elements;
  • Symmetric speed is a term used to refer to equal upload and download times on an Internet connection. With fiber Internet, you can benefit from equal upload and download speeds allowing more simultaneous video conference calls, fast uploads of files to the cloud or via email attachments, such as photos, videos, or other large data;
  • Fiber internet supports higher quality TV streaming. That’s great news if you’re thinking about buying that new 4K TV.
