The benefits of fiber-optic service include:

Speed – Fiber-optic internet is many times faster than the highest-speed copper internet connections.

Symmetric Speed – A term used to refer to equal upload and download times on an Internet connection is “symmetric speed.” With fiber Internet customers benefit from equal upload and download times. This is great for multi-tasking as associates upload and download content simultaneously.

Reliability – A fiber-optic Internet connection offers significant reliability advantages over copper Internet connectivity. This is because with fiber optics data is transmitted via light rather than electric signals.

Security – Would-be hackers and information thieves can gain access to business cable Internet with relative ease, due to cable tapping or other relatively simple methodologies. The only way to penetrate fiber-optic Internet is to physically cut the fibers, which will cause the signal to disappear. The fiber-optic Internet is a powerful way to increase your company’s protection against cybercrime

Cost Savings – Fast Internet is widely considered to be a productivity tool for businesses, eliminating speed issues could result in a week’s worth of productivity increases each year. If your business suffers from unreliable connectivity due to region or weather, you could be losing thousands of dollars each year. Perhaps more importantly, your business will gain flexibility and scalability with fiber-optic Internet connectivity.

Cloud Access & HD Video – From data storage to customer relationship management tools, accessing the cloud is becoming a vital business tool for hosting, apps, and more. Fiber internet provides the speed and reliability to support these services including teleconferencing and videoconferencing services as they are being used now more than ever.
