Building a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network takes several years. Won't fiber technology be obsolete by then?
Quite the opposite. A fiber network is built for the future! In addition to superfast transmission speeds, a fiber-optic network can carry an extremely high amount of data and is not limited by bandwidth.
Fiber-optic systems are made up of tiny strands of glass that carry data using light waves, resulting in much faster internet speeds and better reliability than traditional copper lines. Central Georgia EMC and Conexon Connect believe FTTH is the best, most sustainable communications choice.
In addition to providing consistent “symmetrical” high speeds for both uploading and downloading, fiber is more reliable than other networks because it’s less susceptible to interference and damage from lightning or extreme weather. By following the electric footprint of the cooperative, the fiber network also has an established installation and maintenance system in place, reinforcing its sustainability.
Because of its superior reliability and affordability, fiber will continue to power internet evolution for years into the future.
