For a business that truly needs it, there is no substitute for a fiber optic Internet connection.
Fiber optic technology converts electrical signals carrying data into light and sends the light through glass fibers about the diameter of a human hair. It is the fastest type of Internet connection available.
If your business involves web conferencing, streaming high definition video, file sharing or cloud computing, fiber offers many benefits. The main advantage is that it can offer much faster speeds over much longer distances than traditional copper-based technologies like DSL and cable.
Other key benefits include:
- Speed does not decrease as high demands are put on the network.
- Speeds are “symmetric”. This means that upload and download speeds are equal. This better reflects how people work today. Today’s employees are more likely to upload video content, files, or make phone calls while downloading content than in the past.
- It’s a dedicated service. Capacity is reserved just for you. If you pay for 30Mb x 30Mb you will always get it.
- Service is guaranteed. Fiber includes a service level agreement. Essentially, this is guarantee that if your service does not meet the agreed upon levels for four hours or more you will receive a refund for up to entire month of service.
Not surprisingly, the cost of fiber Internet can be much higher than other broadband options. For example, many plans start at $500-700 per month for 10Mb. In addition, there are often hefty install costs of $40k or more.
At Future Link IT, however, our fiber optic monthly service fee is usually much less than other providers. In addition, 90% of the time installation to your property line is absolutely free. This alone can significantly reduce the cost of your install.
