Customer success story:
Is gig internet overkill?
Customer success story: Is gig internet overkill?
Things move fast at my business. I share my broadband connection with dozens of other employees in my office as we use our devices on a daily basis, and the strain was beginning to take its toll on our bandwidth, and then consequently on our productivity. I literally couldn’t afford a slowdown, which is why I chose to switch to a fiber-optic network.
I did my research and found that using optical fiber enables faster speeds than other internet mediums, such as copper wire. The benefits that have come from my Fios service have exceeded my expectations as well:
- A pure 100% gigabit fiber connection gives my business the best internet service possible.
- With 940/880 Mbps there’s no question that there’s plenty of bandwidth to go around.
- My service equipment transmits directly from its location to the optical network terminal box outside of my office, so my internet connection is rarely interrupted.
I’m constantly surprised by how much my business has come to rely on the speed of gigabit internet. If there was ever any doubt that a gig is worth it, it was gone by the time my internet was switched on.
How fast is gigabit internet service?
One gig internet runs at 940 Mbps, downloading data at a rate of 112.06 MB/second. At this speed you can download a 500 MB video conference in approximately 4 seconds.
With fiber-optic internet, upload speeds increase up to 840 Mbps, freeing up bandwidth. 1 gig can support up to 100 workers without lag.
