Fiber internet connects to the internet by transmitting light pulses through a transparent glass fiber, which are about the same size as a human hair. An optical transmitter converts a light signal into an optical signal so that it is able to travel down the optic fiber. Optic fibers are routed underground and contain optical receivers that transmit the information to your computer.
Verizon Fios is the largest fiber optic provider in the U.S. Because of its limited availability, Verizon Fios is able to reach slightly over 32 million customers in 10 states.
Fiber optic is the fastest internet option but unfortunately its availability is limited across the U.S. If you have fiber optic available to you, you would be able to purchase speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
Depending on what fiber tier you select, plans start at around $50 and go up to $150 per month. Because you are buying an upgraded service, many providers include benefits such as free installation or free premium television channels for a year.
Fiber is the fastest option compared to any broadband service if it available in your area. You also get more reliable and constant internet connection. The fast speeds can be attributed to the fact that fiber optic lines are dedicated lines, meaning your speed will not be slowed by the amount of users.
