Verizon FiOS Technology


Communication at the speed of light
That's why you need fiber optics. It's a unique technology that transmits data through hair-thin strands of glass fiber, using laser-generated pulses of light—and light travels faster than any other wave, 300,000 kilometers per second. The result? Mind-boggling speed, almost no loss of quality over long distances, and virtually unlimited capacity or "bandwidth." All 32 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica, for example, can be sent through an optical connection in less than a second!

Cable vs. fiber optics
But beware! Cable companies like to boast about their fiber-optic networks, when they only use fiber in their main lines and only as far as their central offices. For the all-important connection between those "local exchanges" and customers' homes, they typically rely on traditional copper phone lines or coaxial cables that significantly slow data transmission speeds and limit bandwidth.

Fiber to the home
Verizon's "Fiber-to-the-home" (FTTH) network has no such limits—it's fiber optics all the way. That opens up all kinds of exciting possibilities, from blazing-fast interactive content and home shopping to highly efficient telecommuting, telemedicine and audio/video on demand. Fiber is also more reliable than copper—less susceptible to inclement weather and easier to maintain. And its unique technology allows us to monitor the network and make repairs even before our customers notice problems.

Future-proofing
Last but not least, fiber-optic technology keeps getting better, with no end in sight. So with FiOS Internet you'll not only enjoy the fastest speeds and best online experience available anywhere, you'll be "future-proofed" for the next big new Internet tools and applications coming down the pike.
