Fiber-Optic internet is a method of sending and receiving information from one location to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light that is sent through the fiber-optic cable is formatted in a special way to carry information. Compare this to a traditional cable internet set up where data transmission happens over a cable service provider.

Fiber-optic cables are made of glass instead of metal. This gives them special properties over traditional cable internet. A fiber optic cable can be run for much longer than a traditional internet cable. They also provide some of the fastest internet speeds on the market. Because of this fiberoptic works amazingly as the backbone of large commercial offices.
Traditional internet cabling was designed for voice transmission which leaves them with limited bandwidth compared to fiber optic cabling. Fiber optic cabling provides more bandwidth than traditional copper cabling.
Fiber optic cabling can carry data for up to 25 miles. With traditional internet cabling, you are limited to 328 feet. This lends itself well for commercial applications where there are large networks.
Faster Internet Speed
Increased speed is one of the biggest advantages of fiber optic internet. A fiber optic cable uses light to transmit data, this means your data is almost moving at the speed of light. With speeds of up to 940 megabits per second (Mbps) – fiber internet can send data almost as fast as the speed of light. Traditional Cat5 or Cat6 cables use copper which isn’t as fast as fiber optic.
Identical upload & download speeds.
With fiber optic cabling you get the same data transfer (internet) speed for uploading as you get for downloading. With Cat5 or Cat6 cabling, your uploading speeds are typically greatly reduced compared to the download speed.
Due to the nature of a fiber optic cable, they are incredibly durable. Each strand in a fiber optic cable is thinner than a strand of human hair. When you combine hundreds of these cables it creates an extremely durable cable. Additionally, fiber optic cables aren’t susceptible to extreme weather conditions meaning reduced outages.
