What is fiber optic internet?
Fiber optic internet is the fastest and most reliable internet service available. By replacing traditional copper cable, phone lines, or satellite signals with fiber-optic cable, fiber internet is able to achieve speeds that older, more outdated technologies simply cannot reach.
It is important to note that there are more than one type of fiber optic services currently available; Fiber to the Neighborhood (FTTN), Fiber to the Curb (FTTC), and Fiber to the Home (FTTH).
FTTN internet provides a fiber connection to hundreds of customers within a one-mile radius of the node. The remaining connection from the node to your home is often a DSL line that uses existing telephone or cable lines.
FTTC means your fiber connection goes to the nearest pole or utility box and coaxial cables will send signals from the “curb” to your home. This means your connection is made up of part fiber-optic cables, part copper wires.
FTTH means your fiber internet connection goes straight into your home, so that no outdated technology slows down your internet speed. This is the fastest and most reliable network and the type of service that BaseLine internet provides.
