If you’re going to build broadband and have a choice of technologies, why is fiber the best choice?
- Future-proofed. Fiber is the only technology that can handle the broadband demand today and for the next fifty years.
- Fiber Has Solved the Upload Problem. Fiber is the only technology that solves the upload needs today.
- Is the Easiest to Operate. Fiber networks are the easiest to operate since they transmit light instead of radio waves.
- Lower Life Cycle Costs. Fiber is clearly expensive to build, but the cost characteristics over a fifty-year time frame can make fiber the lowest-cost long-term option.
