Have you ever seen one of the old cartoons where an object or animal flies by the character so fast that it literally leaves a trail of dust? Immediately an accident-prone coyote and a speedy road runner may pop into your head. From childhood, we are conditioned to be fast at everything. Even the television shows we watch tell us that it is better to be fast. We live in a fast paced world and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon – it’s actually quite the opposite. As technology improves and we come to depend on the internet for business and leisure, we need access to the fastest network speeds. Faster internet with fiber is available now.
As a society, we make improvements in our trades by offering better quality at a faster speed. Internet Service Providers are in a constant battle to be the best in quality and the best in speed. Everyone wants to come out on top. Leading companies are spending billions of dollars so they can offer the best services to more people. For example, AT&T spent over $28 billion last year expanding fiber services across 22 states. Plus, they are spending even more this year to keep expanding their network to other states. Aura Fiber, with AT&T, are now the forerunners in our field because we offer the world’s fastest, most secure fiber connection to residential and business customers. In partnership, Aura Fiber and AT&T are one of the few able to offer consumer access to the ultra-fast Gigabit Fiber network.
You may be asking yourself, “So, why are they expanding fiber? Why not expand DSL or Cable?” Simple answer is: fiber is the fastest! To understand how fast fiber internet is, you need to understand how it works.
Here’s a quick breakdown: A fiber internet connection is set up by using light to send and receive data. Within hundreds of pure glass strands, light is compressed into a series of pulses. This gives the fiber-optic network the ability to send and receive data literally approaching the speed of light. Another thing about fiber that makes it superior to DSL and satellite is it doesn’t use electricity. This means power outages won’t affect your service. It also means fiber is more eco-friendly!
Regardless of whether you are waiting for a page to load or waiting for a video to buffer, you are still waiting. With fiber, your wait time is virtually gone. Because fiber doesn’t depend on electricity, there isn’t lag time between sending and receiving data. Light is the conductor, and it doesn’t wait around for the juice to power up and do its job.
Let’s go even further into fiber internet: How does it compare to other access methods, such as cable or DSL, in terms of speed? If you have ever used a DSL connection, you probably know about wait times. Statista data earlier this year reported that the average internet download speed in the U.S. is a sluggish 20Mbps. Even the fastest state, Washington D.C . maxed out at 28Mbps. Aura Fiber’s state-of-the-art 1000Mbps network is a startling 50 x faster than the current U.S. average.
Going from a normal connection method, like DSL or cable, to fiber is an extraordinary experience! What you once thought was fast is now the idea of slow. You will be blown away by how quickly fiber internet performs its duties. At Aura Fiber, we build our standards on the integrity and performance of fiber internet. We believe in its power, and at a speed of 1000mbps, you will become a believer too. Contact us today and let Aura Fiber guide you into the future of internet access!
