ELEXCO provides reliable, customized utility installation and excavation solutions, from fiber optic installation to specialized communications systems. But what really is fiber-optic Internet? How does it work?
What is Fiber-Optic Internet?
Fiber-optic Internet reaches your home or business via glass or plastic fiber (optical fiber) cables. The fibers transmit light (optical) pulses that carry data.
Elexco can help with fiber installation, Fiber to the Premises (FTTP), troubleshooting fiber integrity issues, splice loss, and more. Fiber optic cables often run underground, where we do our best work.
Benefits of Fiber-Optic Internet
Fiber-optic speed, measured in megabits per second (Mbps), tells us how fast your device sends and receives data as uploads and downloads. Because fiber optic networks use light rather than a telephone wire, fiber optic internet is much faster than cable or DSL.
Fiber-optic has less interference than other types of Internet transmission. Weather won’t interrupt your streaming, and the protective tubing and cable jackets reduce the likelihood of physical interference.
If you don’t have fiber in your area, keep checking, you likely will soon!
