Have you wanted a faster internet speed that is also reliable and secure? Now, you can get it! Fiber internet is the way to go for a fast, reliable, secure internet connection. You may be wondering: What is fiber? How is it different from DSL or cable? Let’s begin with the basics…
Fiber (or fiber-optic) uses a method of data transmission called fiber-optic communication. Instead of electricity, this method uses pulses of light to send and receive data in binary form. It also uses hundreds of individual pure glass fibers to help conduct the pulses over long distances. Now, you may be thinking, “Okay, so put that in simple terms!” So, to put it simply, the speed of light is fast and so fiber internet harnesses that speed and uses it to our advantage. As fiber-optic technology has improved over past decades, it’s now the gold standard for digital communication. With access to the latest generation of fiber cabling, Aura Fiber, in partnership with AT&T, offers the world’s best fiber network.
Fiber is not only better because of its fast speed, but also because it is reliable and secure. Unlike its copper-based predecessors (DSL and Cable), fiber uses glass and light to work, without the need for electricity. Since it doesn’t use electricity, it will still work during a power outage! Wouldn’t that be a relief during a bad storm? Keeping your business operational and letting family know you are alright after a major storm hits your region is a priority. With fiber, you will be able to communicate with the outside world even as you sit in the dark because your home’s power is out!
Another great advantage fiber offers is security. Since fiber doesn’t use electricity, the odds of someone hacking into your network decreases dramatically. Hackers generally need electrical signals to intercept to hack into a network. Fiber eliminates this method of hacking because it doesn’t use electrical signals to send or receive your personal data. With fiber everything is done “off the electric grid” so to speak. Aura Fiber prides itself on delivering the most secure internet connection for home and business.
Here’s a question you may have: What maintenance is required with fiber internet services? With DSL or cable, you are almost certainly going to have to call a technician to fix or check your connection at least once every couple of years. Your old wires and router will need replacing over time and your connection will most definitely begin to slow. However, fiber is the complete opposite. It is recommended that once your fiber is installed by a certified technician, you should leave it alone. The only other time you should get a technician to look at it is if it isn’t functioning properly. The Fiber Optic Association (FOA) stresses the “more harm than good” results that unnecessary tests or maintenance can produce. So, what maintenance does fiber internet need? The answer is, none! No regular maintenance is required or recommended for fiber units in the course of general functioning.
Fiber offers so many advantages to users including, but not limited to, speed, reliability, security, and long life. If you need more convincing, add this to the pros of fiber: it is eco-friendly! Since fiber doesn’t use a high amount of energy, it has become the eco-conscious user’s dream. Fiber truly is a dream come true for internet users all over the world!
