Fiber Optic Internet, sometimes called Fiber Optic Cable Internet, is the transmission of data by light signals that travel on a fiber encased in a cable. The signal is known for being extremely fast and especially strong over large distances – up to 40 miles, without having to boost the signal.
Unlike copper telephone lines used for broadband internet services, fiber optic cables can carry large bundles of information at one time. Telephone lines were only meant to transfer audio (phone conversations), whereas optic cables were designed to handle all types of data including video, text, and multimedia.
Fiber optic cables send data at a rate that is only 31% slower than the speed of light. This equates to a capacity of about 250-1000 megabytes per second. Cable broadband connections have a maximum of only 50 megabytes per second.
Compare Fiber to DSL and Cable technologies that transmit data over copper wires, which are sensitive to electrical disruptions, and can only travel up to about 300 meters without needing a signal boost.
Fiber optic and cable broadband internet systems both use fiber optic cables to transfer data from one location to another. It’s actually the means of covering the distance between your nearest local street cabinet and your office building that separates a fiber optic connect from a cable one.
With a cable broadband system, the fiber optic cables end at your street cabinet. From there they are sent to your office building via copper telephone line. With a fiber optic system, data is sent from the street cabinet to your office via coaxial cable – a thick type of electrical cable that transmits signals more effectively.
Fiber-optic cables, on the other hand, are far less affected or unaffected by these conditions. Additionally, fiber-optic cables are much tougher than copper wiring, making them less likely to break under pressure.
Fiber-optic communication offers higher security because of the way it transmits data. Fiber-optic communication is made possible by sending data as pulses of light across very thin strands of glass or plastic fiber.
Not only does this allow data to move at speeds approaching the speed of light, it makes data signals much harder for hackers or malicious individuals to intercept.
