Why is fiber better than copper?

The fiber optic signal is made of light which entails very little signal loss meaning data moves at a higher speed over a greater distance. Our fiber installation ensures you’re getting reliably fast Internet (up to 1 gigabit!), even during peak times. Fiber allows you to upload just as fast as you download. Bad weather doesn’t affect fiber because the core is glass making it immune to interference. Additionally, fiber makes your data safer since it’s incredibly difficult to tap into compared to copper cable. We could go on, and we did! Check our ALLO blog for more information about the fiber future.
