See how cable
stacks up to Fios®.
Fiber optics are glass wires that use light to transmit
data. This is just a fancy way of saying Fios gives you
the best sharing, streaming and gaming experience.
This technology helps make sure your signal stays
strong and clear and allows us to provide the fastest
internet and Wi-Fi available.^
^Symmetrical speed options available up to 500/500 Mbps. Fastest Wi-Fi
is based on internet speed plans and maximum router throughput available.
In the last mile leading up to your home, cable uses
copper wires that can be corroded. This sort of
damage can lead to a less reliable connection.
Each device you connect to the internet uses a
portion of your overall speed. And during times
when more people are online, copper wiring can
create a digital bottleneck that slows data down.
That could mean choppy video chats, glitchy
games and slower streaming.
Copper wires are vulnerable to damage and
outages during storms or other bad weather.
Storms that take out power lines or extreme
cold can tear or break the copper wiring.
Which makes getting stuck at home even worse.
Because fiber-optic wires use light to transmit
signals, they’re less vulnerable to interference,
giving you 99.9% network reliability.
Fios feeds fiber-optic technology all the way to your
home, giving you a strong signal with fewer
bandwidth restrictions than cable. In fact, our
average upload bandwidth capacity is 30x higher
**Based on Fios GPON upload access network bandwidth capacity of
1200 Mbps and 32 households & cable capacity of 120 Mbps and a typical
node size of 125 households for DOCSIS with 4 bonded channels.
Fios is not cable.
We’re wired differently.

You’ve seen the past. Now explore the future.
Only a 100% fiber-optic network is designed
with the capacity to easily adapt and
provide more speed and support.
It’s time to switch to technology built for the future.
The wires cable companies use to send signals to your
home were created in 1948. Fiber connectivity was created years
later to improve the quality and reliability of signal delivery.
Copper wires were made to support rotary
phones and TV screens that definitely couldn’t
fit in the palm of your hand.
Cable was great for the technology of the past.
It may not be so great for the technology of the future.
Fios was created in 2005 using the latest fiber
wiring. It was designed to handle changing
technology and your growing bandwidth needs.
As you add more devices to
your home, you’ll need internet
that can keep up.
