Ready to learn more about fiber? We have the answers.
Fiber Internet service is Internet that is transferred over fiber optic cables. There are many benefits of fiber Internet service, one of which is having dedicated access. That means you don’t have to share bandwidth between your voice and data applications. Another benefit is symmetrical speeds, which means upload speeds are just as fast as download speeds. Fiber Internet service also has high capacity. Your business can handle increases in traffic because fiber delivers more bandwidth. Additionally, fiber Internet service is often backed by Service Level Agreements that guarantee availability, so hiccups in service or downtime are not a concern.
Lit fiber means that a location has fiber lines that are already in place and ready for use.
In addition to fiber Internet service, lit fiber is used for services such as data networking, hosted communications, PRI, SIP trunking and even video services.
In fiber optic service, data is transferred over fiber optic cables that are built around a glass core. Data passes through the fiber in the form of light, which is fast and can travel long distances. Fiber optic cables are made up of fiber strands, and each fiber strand can accommodate many wavelengths (or channels), allowing fiber to handle ever-increasing data-capacity requirements.
When your business is in a fiber lit building, it means a fiber optic network has been installed and is active. The Spectrum Enterprise fiber network spans thousands of fiber route miles and fiber lit buildings, so there's a chance your building is already fiber lit.
How far fiber optic runs to your building depends on your provider. Spectrum Enterprise runs fiber, not just to your building, but all the way to your suite and equipment.
If your business runs data-intensive, cloud based or mission critical applications, it would benefit from a dedicated, fiber Internet service. You may need a fiber installation if your building does not already have a fiber optic service or lit fiber. Every day, Spectrum Enterprise is extending our fiber network—and we may be able to bring it to your building. Just fill out the form or call us at 866-716-8914, and an Enterprise Account Executive will be in touch to go over your building's fiber installation options.
