Why is FiOS Better?

  • How is FiOS different from cable?

    Because cable providers do not connect directly to your home with a dedicated line, FiOS offers superior performance and reliability. With cable, coaxial lines are routed to central hubs where the signal splits and is shared by multiple homes throughout the neighborhood. Therefore, data transfer can lag, depending on the number of users connected to the network at any given time. Since FiOS uses a direct, dedicated fiber-optic connection to your home, your speeds aren’t affected by your neighbors’ usage. FiOS ensures you have a private, unshared connection at all times.

  • Is FiOS faster than cable?

    Absolutely. Unlike coaxial cables, fiber-optic lines consist of super thin strands of glass that transfer information quickly and efficiently—similar to the speed at which light travels. Old-fashioned cable simply can’t compare with the blazing speeds and bandwidth FiOS generates.

  • Is FiOS more reliable?

    Yes. FiOS is more reliable because it’s delivered directly to your home via a fiber-optic connection. With cable Internet, coaxial cables have less bandwidth capacity and are susceptible to inclement weather. Rain, snow and wind can cause severe slowdown, weakening signals and rendering the connection unreliable at times. Plus, during cold or stormy weather, people tend to stay inside, competing for bandwidth which can slow shared cable speeds.
