Why Fibre Optic networks can benefit you and your business

The rise of cloud-based services have changed our online behavior. Individuals and businesses expect to have the fastest download speeds and quick access to information. We constantly assess our internet network and desire the highest quality connection. There are high demands when it comes to your internet connectivity. C3 Pure Fibre internet solutions can help you with those demands. 

High latency, slow internet speeds, and restricted bandwidth can cause issues for you at home and productivity concerns for you in business. This is where a fibre optic network becomes particularly useful and effective. 

How Does It Work?

Fibre optic internet refers to the data connection carried by cables filled with thin glass fibers. Data travels through the cables as patterned light pulses and are up to 20 times faster than regular cable networks. The high speeds are achieved by splitting data into smaller, like parcels. 

The data travels through the light to one end of the fibre. Once it reaches the other end, the computer deciphers the data in a way that it can be used. 

This allows fibre optic internet to overcome many issues that were previously caused by inefficient cable networks. There are numerous advantages of fibre optic internet connection. We will highlight the key benefits for you to determine why a fibre optic network is right for your household and business.

Bandwidth

Fibre optic cables have much better bandwidth than copper and metal cables. The amount of information that can be transmitted per unit time of fibre over other transmission media is its most significant advantage. 

If your current network is experiencing low bandwidth or difficulty meeting some of your current data transfer requirements, you may greatly benefit from an upgrade to fibre optic connectivity. Check out this page to learn more about fibre optic internet services in Grand Cayman.

Speed  

In our fast-paced society, we are required to upload content as fast as we download content, usually simultaneously. Slow Internet connections cost us time and efficiency. It is imperative that your internet connectivity is fast, efficient and reliable. 

Fibre optic internet can attain speeds of 1 Gbps, nearly 10 to 20 times faster than the 50 to 100 Mbps cable many of us are accustomed to, meaning a fibre optic connection will keep you as productive as possible. Check out this article to learn more about internet speed.

Reliability 

Fibre optic connectivity offers significant reliability benefits over cable internet connectivity, due to the fact that fibre is stronger than copper. Fibre optic internet is less susceptible to weather conditions, which can damage or stall data transmission for copper cables. Fibre is resistant to human or electrical interference unless fibers are physically interrupted. Any amount of unplanned downtime can bring productivity to a complete standstill. Simply put, reliability is a necessity. 

Support for HD TV & Video

The holidays are almost here and one of the most purchased items for gifts are televisions, particularly the Ultra High Definition 4K TV. According to reports, global sales of UHD 4K TVs are higher than 108 million. With four times the amount of pixels that create an incredibly crisp picture, we can see why. 

These TVs, however, use more bandwidth from your internet connection. Cable internet may struggle to deliver 4K internet streaming whereas fibre optic internet will deliver superior streaming every time. A fibre optic connection should have no trouble streaming high-quality 4K TV and movies. Check out this page to learn more about C3 Fibre TV services.

Low Power Loss, No Throttling

Fibre optic cable internet does not need energized lines, so it’s not prone to power loss like cable internet. Most internet providers use throttling to prevent outages. At peak times, your provider may lower speeds to ration their service. Fibre optic internet speed doesn’t throttle because it is far less susceptible to overload.

High-quality Teleconferencing and Video Conferencing 

Teleconferencing and video conferencing are important tools for your business. Fibre optic internet allows tasks such as employee training, marketing, and sales to be completed without sacrificing available bandwidth. Businesses can increase their investment in video conferencing as a business tool with confidence.

Research suggests that investment in video conferencing can save companies thousands of dollars per employee each year or even month, by reducing excessive business travel and optimizing time and productivity. Check out this article to learn more about fibre optic internet for business.

Symmetrical Speeds

Cable internet provides different speeds for download and upload. Upload speeds are far slower. Cable internet providers give most of their bandwidth to downloads. Slow upload time is eliminated with fibre optic internet. Without the worry of system overload, fibre optic internet provides equal upload and download speeds. That makes it much easier to share files and work from home with a fibre optic internet connection.

Improved Latency 

Latency refers to the delay that occurs while processing data over an internet connection. Fibre optic networks eliminate many of the latency issues users experience on cable Internet, particularly when downloading or uploading a video or consuming high-definition content. 

The benefits of lowering your latency could include better voice quality for VoIP users, better cloud access, download and upload huge files uninterrupted, and improved team collaboration. Another major benefit of improved latency is better gameplay experience. The smooth and consistent flow of data ensures an optimal experience for gamers. Check out the article for why fibre optic internet is ideal for online gaming.

Security 

Fibre optic cable keeps the data of your family or business secure. Those looking to hack your server and steal information can do so easily with regular cable systems. The only real way to penetrate fibre optic internet connectivity is to cut the actual fibre, causing the signal to disappear altogether. 

Fibre optic internet has higher physical security as all hardware and electronics are installed in one central location. Regular cable systems require equipment to be installed within distribution locations throughout a facility making you a potential victim of cybercrime. Fibre optic Internet is a powerful and important way to increase your protection online. 

Whether you are on a residential or business network, C3 will assist you in determining the ideal fibre optic internet connection for your needs.
