What are Fiber Optics?

Optic fibers are hair-thin, flexible strands of glass through which light beams can travel. The strand functions as a waveguide, or “light pipe” to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber. Fiber can handle basically an infinite amount of speed, allowing us to offer high speeds at a low cost. The incumbent telecom providers rely, at least in part, on copper wire technology, which limit their ability to provide faster speeds.
