You’ve heard a lot of talk about Fiber Internet, but do you really know what it can do for you? Sure, it’s faster and will make your connection far more reliable and convenient. But do you know the other ways it will help? Here are a few things you may not know about Fiber:
Fiber is “future-proof.” In the Internet industry, Fiber is considered a future-proof technology. In other words, Fiber provides such a fast, reliable connection that it can handle not only the data demands of today, but the demands that experts expect us to have for many years to come. It’s not only the best technology for now—it will continue to be the best.
Fiber raises your home’s value. The Fiber-to-the-Home Council completed a study using a nationwide study of real estate prices and found that access to Fiber Internet increases the value of a house up to 3.1% or in some cases, particularly in rural unserved areas, over 25% as witnessed in our local valleys. Fiber improves your daily life and your long-term prospects if and when you decide to sell your home.
Fiber powers a lot more than your computer. It used to be that we only used the Internet on our computers. Today, though, our thermostats, gaming systems, Smart TVs, refrigerators, cell phones, tablets, and—yes—computers all use an Internet connection. The world of the “Internet of things” is here, and Fiber provides enough power to keep you connected.
Fiber solves the multiuser problem. Have you ever experienced a situation where your wife is watching Netflix, you’re browsing online, your kids are playing games, and all of a sudden everyone is yelling because the Internet is too slow or keeps cutting out? With Fiber Internet, those situations become a thing of the past. Fiber lets you easily stream HD video and other data-heavy applications on multiple devices at once—no more fighting over the Internet connection at home.
Fiber Internet isn’t just the latest thing—it’s a technology that will serve you well for years to come. We’re excited to be able to bring you the same technology that is generally only available in the largest urban areas. Fiber makes a difference, today and into the future.
