What is fiber internet?
Fiber optic internet is a type of broadband internet service that uses fiber-optic cables to transmit data via beams of light up to 1,000 times faster than traditional copper cables.
Faster data speeds mean speedier upload and download speeds, shorter loading time on websites, and streaming without lagging. Plus, fiber cables are tougher to extract data from it, making it more secure and can also better withstand the elements .
