4 Great Reasons To Choose Fiber Internet1 comment
So, you’re thinking of fiber internet? Here are some things that make fiber a great choice.
1. Fiber has fast upload speeds.
Are you working from home and uploading large files? Do you create videos to post on social media? If you’re sending more large files than ever before, you’ll appreciate fiber’s fast upload speeds. Your data will be delivered lickety split, just how you like it.
2. Fiber has symmetrical speeds.
This means your fast upload speeds will match your fast download speeds, so you can upload information just as fast as you can download it.
3. Fiber is cutting-edge technology.
Fiber sends and receives data through pulses of light (think of the speed of light!), and the hair-thin fibers are wrapped with durable layers of cladding. Read what Corning, the inventor of fiber optics for data transmission, says about the construction.
4. Fiber has bandwidth to support multiple users.
If you have a lot of users in your home (count up all your connected devices; you probably have more than you think!), fiber’s bandwidth, which is the measurement of your home network capacity, can meet your needs. You’ll have plenty of internet capacity when you’ve got gamers, streamers and social media uploaders and you’re working from home all at the same time.
Once you’ve decided to choose fiber internet, what’s next?
Check to see if fiber internet is offered in your area. More internet service providers are starting to invest in building out fiber networks. Check your local internet providers to see. If fiber is an option, you’ve struck gold.
Prepare your home for fiber installation. This is the part that scares some people off, but it’s much simpler than you think. Once you’ve chosen a provider to work with, your best bet is to schedule a time for them to come install your new fiber internet for you. They provide all of the necessary equipment—including a router if you use one from your provider, which is the most foolproof choice—and they have the experience to install it quickly. While it’s possible to install fiber yourself, especially if your home is already set up with an Optical Network Terminal (ONT), having it done professionally may be easier.
Now you get to connect your devices. With your new fiber optic internet connected, it’s time to set up your home Wi-Fi network and connect your TV, computer, phone, tablet or any other smart device you have.
Start choosing your streaming services. With a new fiber network, it’s a great time to bring your entertainment into your home and through your fast internet service. Fiber lets you make the most of your cool 4K smart TV and start streaming. But have no fear! You can still watch all the programs you want with both live TV and on-demand services. In a previous article, we talked about how cutting the cord can actually get you more of what you want to watch, and signing up for your selections isn’t complicated.
