Fiber - Fiber Internet Providers

Fiber-optic internet is used to achieve high-bandwidth connectivity which enables you to stream HD videos, watch movies, access social media platform, browse the web, and play high definition games with zero delays. Nowadays, Fiber optic technology is the most advanced wireline technology for telecommunication, which can transmit data over 100 Gpbs easily.

How Does Fiber Internet Works?

Fiber internet works by using the fiber-optic lines, which are known as cables that contain strands of glass. The optical glass cable acts as a conduit for flashing lights that blink at selected intervals to transmit digital code from one end to the other. This technology allows you to access better internet speeds far beyond what you get from DSL or cable.
