Fiber Internet FAQs

Fiber Optic Internet, sometimes called Fiber Optic Cable Internet, is the transmission of data by light signals that travel on a fiber encased in a cable. The signal is known for being extremely fast and especially strong over large distances – up to 40 miles, without having to boost the signal. Fiber optic cables send data at a rate that is only 31% slower than the speed of light. This equates to a capacity of about 250-1000 megabytes per second. Cable broadband connections have a maximum of only 50 megabytes per second. Unlike copper telephone lines used for broadband internet services, fiber optic cables can carry large bundles of information at one time. Telephone lines were only meant to transfer audio (phone conversations), whereas optic cables were designed to handle all types of data including video, text, and multimedia.

Fiber optic and cable broadband internet systems both use fiber optic cables to transfer data from one location to another. It’s actually the means of covering the distance between your nearest local street cabinet and your office building that separates a fiber optic connect from a cable one. With a cable broadband system, the fiber optic cables end at your street cabinet. From there they are sent to your office building via copper telephone line. With a fiber optic system, data is sent from the street cabinet to your office via coaxial cable – a thick type of electrical cable that transmits signals more effectively. Compare Fiber to DSL and Cable technologies that transmit data over copper wires, which are sensitive to electrical disruptions, and can only travel up to about 300 meters without needing a signal boost.

A recent study by McAfee showed by 83% of businesses store sensitive data in the cloud. This means that employees are constantly accessing cloud storage services, private and public, like AWS, Azure, Google Drive, and Dropbox, to find important files. The more information stored on these sites, the slower the files will load. This is particularly true when companies are relying on a broadband internet connection since downloading times are significantly slower on these networks.

The amount of video consumption taking place online has skyrocketed in recent years. Streaming video in particular requires significant bandwidth. This means businesses that conduct many web-based conference calls, or regularly stream live video content, require a more robust internet solution. With fiber optic cable internet, employees and business owner’s need not worry about videos lagging during peak times of the day, when multiple team members are using the web simultaneously, or watching live footage only to see pixelated, low-quality footage.

Having software that updates itself when new versions or fixes are released is extremely convenient. It allows employees to focus more time on operational tasks, eliminating the need to manually update programs. But, opting for automatic updates means your computer is constantly scanning for new versions of software and using bandwidth as these updates are completed in the background. For those broadband services, these constant scans and downloads can chew through bandwidth fast, slowing down internet connections and making other tasks more time-consuming.

Business Ethernet Service

Speeds up to 100x100 Gbps

Fast, scalable and predictable bandwidth comes with Business Ethernet. With greater resilience at high speeds, there is no better value for demanding business environments.

  • Ideal for business with mission-critical data access requirements
  • Up to 50% less expensive than comparable T1 service
  • Supports remote workers and virtual private networking (VPN)
  • Leverages your existing infrastructure
  • Asymmetric Ethernet also available for less intensive upload situations

Ethernet FAQs

Symmetrical Business Ethernet connections offer low latency and high bandwidth. The service is less expensive than a bonded T1 line and requires less on-premises equipment than comparable T1 services. Higher speeds can often be provisioned on existing circuits, making ethernet a cost-effective and reliable way to scale and support bandwidth needs.

Symmetric Ethernet speeds, ranging from 2x2 Mbps to 100x100 Gbps, are available in over 800 central offices across 50 major markets in the continental United States.

T1 Internet & Bonded T1

Speeds up to 12x12 Mbps

T1 and Bonded T1 plans meet needs of many business locations that require symmetrical upload and download speeds, that are not distance sensitive from the central office. Bonded T1 uses the full capacity of the bonded circuit, with inverse multiplexing so you get more for your money.

  • Supports bandwidth-intensive applications like VoIP and streaming video
  • Use to transmit data and images, or run Web, email or database services
  • Professional installation and set up of your T1 service
  • T1 speeds are: 1.5, 3.0, 4.5, 6.0, 7.5, 9.0, 10.5 and 12.0 Mbps
  • Comes with 99.99% uptime SLA

T1 FAQs

A T1 line is a communications transmission service that uses two twisted pair copper wires to transmit and receive data or voice traffic. Each T1 connection is provisioned with an industry standard DS1 loop. Fusion Connect facilitates the professional installation and setup of your T1 service. Purchase a business-class router with one year warranty; rent a router with lifetime warranty. Or use your own equipment if it meets our requirements.

Business Ethernet offers higher bandwidths. Business Ethernet is easier, faster, and less expensive to scale because it does not require additional equipment. T1/Bonded T1 uses link bonding technology. It is an older technology with limited throughput. An impediment in any one of the T1 lines can impact the entire connection. Ethernet uses loop bonding, a newer technology with more throughput. If one loop fails, the bandwidth remains available.
