What Is Fiber-Optic Internet?

Fiber-optic internet, often called just fiber internet or fiber, is an internet connection technology that uses optical fibers to transmit data in the form of refracted light signals. To put it very simply, the use of light refraction allows data to be transmitted way more quickly and reliably than it would be with typical coaxial cable, wireless or DSL connections.

This means that fiber internet allows for symmetrical upload and download speeds, meaning your download and upload times are equal. With every other internet connection type, download speeds are usually way faster than upload speeds. But with fiber, these speeds are equal due to the nature of the refracted signals. Improved upload speeds can make a huge difference when doing things like gaming, video conferencing or uploading content to the internet. Refracted signals take up very small portions of your household’s connection’s bandwidth. This is also why fiber-enabled households can use so many devices simultaneously.

There is a lot more to learn about what makes fiber-optic internet the most innovative and important internet technology to date. It’s a good idea to become knowledgeable about the internet products you may see advertised when doing your research or comparing service providers, as a more informed customer tends to be more satisfied with both the quality of their service and their monthly bill.
