Living Your Digital Life on Fiber

We live in a very connected world, with so many interactions every single day happening online. We’re calling it living a digital life. Your digital life is the life you live when you’re using connectivity. A surprisingly short time ago, our lives weren’t nearly as connected. Sure, we used the internet, but our only option at one time was to log on at home—maybe to do some homework, look up driving directions or check emails.

And while we may have loved a few gadgets, like digital cameras or digital clocks, most didn’t require internet connectivity to function—meaning we didn’t need our home internet connections to have tons of bandwidth.

But now, our home internet connections must power far more than our computers. Think for a moment about how many different devices and gadgets you use in your home—often simultaneously—that require fast, reliable connections. Your smartphone, your TV, your Alexa, and maybe even household items like your coffeemaker and doorbell, all need strong connections to do their jobs.

Even when we try to log off and go enjoy a world away from screens, we’re probably using some internet to make our way there. Let’s say you want to go for a Saturday morning hike to spend time in the natural world. Think of the ways you’ll use connectivity to prepare you for it: You might look online for recipes for great trail snacks, use your smartphone GPS to navigate your way there, text friends to join you, have your smartwatch track your steps and heart rate during the hike, or asked Alexa to remind you to pack your water bottle.

We now live in a world that depends on the speed and bandwidth that fiber can deliver.

Working from home

When you’re working from home, you’re relying a lot on upload speeds, to servers when you upload data and graphics or large files throughout the day or at the close of your business week. This is where a great fiber benefit comes into play: Fiber has fast upload speeds. This means more data can travel faster from your computer, your devices, to anyplace you want to send it.

Fiber gives you great home entertainment

Nobody likes delays when they’re online, especially when you’re using your connectivity to have a great time. That’s another reason you’ll like fiber. It has low latency. What’s that all about?

Latency is the time it takes for a packet of data to go from your computer to a server and for a response to get sent back. And when you have bad latency, it’s called lag. If you’ve got a gamer or two in the household, a delay in that response time—lag—means their game actions aren’t fast, their data and graphics delay in loading instantly and they can’t easily connect to players worldwide without delays. And that’s the difference between winning and losing.

Low latency will also be welcome when you’re streaming content. You’ll appreciate your access to tons of entertainment options, like streaming TV services from every provider from HBO to Netflix. (And even if you haven’t cut the cord, you’re probably subscribing to a few of those for your favorite shows.) You get low lag when you’re streaming on fiber.

The role of fiber in your smart home

When you’re trying to optimize efficiency in your home and power it with smart home devices, like smart thermostats, doorbells and appliances, you want to count on those connections. With fiber’s bandwidth, you can feel confident that many devices, plus multiple streamers and gamers, can all have great internet performance at the same time.

Fiber has what it takes to give you the digital life you want to live: connected to people, places and experiences that open a whole future full of possibilities.
