Fiber optic is a type of technology that transmits data by sending light along thin glass fibers. Fiber broadband (sometimes called fiber internet) is an internet service that is powered by fiber optic cables. This is different from traditional cable internet, which transmits information by sending electricity over copper wires.
For those who may not know, you’ll often see internet plans measured by download speeds and upload speeds. What exactly do these mean? In simple terms, the download speed tells you how quickly your internet service can move information from remote servers onto your device, while the upload speed tells you the opposite. Both the download speed and the upload speed are typically measured in megabits per second, or Mbps.
For example, high downloads speeds help for things like streaming videos and downloading large files, while high uploads speeds are important for things like video chatting and online gaming.
You will have to check with internet service providers in your area to see if they offer fiber-powered internet where you live.
