What exactly is Fiber Optic Technology?
Fiber optic technology is the future of communications. When we talk about “fiber”, envision it as plastic smaller than a human hair or strand of glass in which data can be transmitted through light waves. Each individual stand of fiber is capable of transferring thousands of phone calls and emails simultaneously. Bundle them together into a fiber cable and that capacity skyrockets into the millions. Considering the traditional copper cables found in most homes and businesses are only capable of providing a fraction of this bandwidth, it’s not hard to see why everyone is insisting on fiber.
