What Is Verizon FiOS?
Verizon FiOS is a high-fidelity Internet connection package that delivers extremely fast Internet service powered by digital Fiber Optic lines, with some areas reaching as much as 500 megabits on the downstream. (Check the Verizon website for details on available upload and download speeds in your area.)
Why Should I Buy FiOS Over Cable?
There are several reasons why you should choose Verizon FiOS services over traditional cable services.
Improved bandwidth capacity – With a coaxial cable, you need to switch the data to an analog signal before transmitting. With Fiber Optic lines, this is not necessary. The data can be transferred in its raw form at the speed of light. Because of this, fiber optic lines have a much higher bandwidth capacity.
More reliable – Coaxial cables use electricity, and moving electrical currents generate a constant magnetic field that can cause interference. This usually results in reduced speed and in extreme cases, can cause your connection to completely drop. Fiber Optic lines do not use electricity, and therefore do not generate a magnetic field. Hence fiber optic lines can deliver more reliable Internet service than cable.
Less susceptible to inclement weather – Fiber Optic lines are less susceptible to inclement weather than coaxial cables because fiber optic lines can be installed underground (hence they cannot be hit by lightning) and they are easier to maintain than coaxial cables.
