Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that technology is evolving at lightning speed! In fact, things are moving on so quickly that today’s gadgets will often feel “out of date” by tomorrow! Of course, it’s not just gadgets and electronics that are evolving all the time. The way that we connect to the Internet is also changing, and for the better, I’m pleased to report.
These days, you can now have high-speed Internet access on the go thanks to 4G or LTE mobile networks. But, what about at home? Well, there have naturally been some improvements on Internet speeds there too. Nowadays, fiber connections are the ones to go for in the quest for super-fast surfing. If you’re still using old DSL technology, now’s the time to upgrade to the 21st century! Here’s why you need fiber Internet in your life:
- More reliable and stable than copper
The thing about fiber Internet is that you don’t have to worry about constant drops in speed or even disconnections. You can enjoy always-on Internet using an infrastructure that is light years ahead of copper wire technology! Plus, fiber enables you to have faster Internet speeds than traditional DSL connections.
- Affordable high-speed Internet
One of the concerns that many people have is that high-speed Internet access is only available at a high cost! Thankfully, the price of fiber Internet has come down in recent years. It’s now just as affordable as standard DSL broadband. In fact, in some cases, it pays to upgrade as it’s CHEAPER!
- Buffering is a thing of the past
Let’s face it; one of the reasons why people go online is to stream multimedia content to their devices. Downloading movies always sucks with DSL connections because there are the buffering blues that you must endure! Good news: you’ll never have to wait for ages for a movie to download thanks to fiber! So, whether you watch opera on demand or listen to music on Spotify, content will get delivered to your devices immediately.
- Perfect for multiple users
The chances are high that you’re not the only person in your household that wants to use the Internet. One of the selling points of fiber is that many people can simultaneously use it to download stuff without any lagging problems.
- Great for gaming
Do you enjoy playing multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft or Grand Theft Auto V? If so, you will no doubt want a stable connection with zero lag for co-operative gameplay. Why settle for second-best when you could get a simple upgrade to fiber Internet?
- Free Internet voice and video calls
Do you hate paying for your phone calls? Who doesn’t! These days, you can access a variety of online services that allow you to place voice or video calls. For such services to work at their best, it’s vital to have a high-speed and reliable Internet connection such as fiber.
