In today’s world, fast and secure internet is more important than ever—nearly all business information is online, and the ability to connect with partners and clients quickly, whether they’re located halfway around the world or just across town, is essential. That’s why more and more businesses are turning to the benefits that fiber broadband provides to keep them connected.
Here are five ways fiber optic internet helps businesses operate at their peak.
- Reliable Internet
A strong connection is important. Even during the busiest parts of the day, businesses don’t suffer from lost connections or reduced speed issues.
- Dependable Speeds
Speed matters—and that doesn’t only apply to page loading times. Employees need to be able to upload and download videos, collateral, assets, and other parts of their everyday job with ease and comfort. Symmetric speeds ensure the upload and download speeds are consistent and reliable.
- Increased Bandwidth
Fiber optic connections aren’t limited by the same hard-capped limits on bandwidth that you’ll find with cable or DSL internet because on fiber networks data is transmitted at the speed of light and fiber optic cables can support much greater bandwidth demands.
- Heightened Security
Fiber broadband is much more secure than traditional wired service, as the fiber optic cables don’t carry electrical signals and are almost impossible to tap into. Fiber won’t solve all security issues, but it can certainly help mitigate much of the risk.
- Minimized Latency
Fiber optic networks offer lower latency over long distances because there’s less need for processing and repeating signals, whereas copper lines are affected by electromagnetic interference and are prone to higher rates of loss.
At the end of the day, what does all this mean to you? Happier employees that aren’t frustrated by the inconveniences that come with slower internet speeds, increased efficiency and productivity, as well as the resulting higher revenues.
