Fiber-optic technology is the future-proof way to get Internet, TV and home phone service in a residence or business. And with Verizon fiber-optic Internet, download speeds can reach up to 500 Mbps in some parts of the country 3. Our 100% fiber-optic network provides superior Internet, TV and home phone services.
Fiber-optic Internet providers and subscribers alike benefit from the technologically advanced and superior quality of fiber-optic communication systems, like the Verizon Fios network.
These systems use fiber-optic cables to transmit Internet, TV and home phone signal from a central office to a receiver at the subscriber’s home or business. The signal travels via lasers or light emitting diodes (LEDs). The receiver converts the light signal into a form that computers, TVs or telephones can recognize.
The two kinds of fiber-optic communication systems are FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) and FTTC (fiber-to-the-curb). FTTH utilizes fiber-optic cable from the central office all the way to the subscriber's home. FTTC utilizes another medium in addition to fiber-optic cables, like traditional copper wiring, before it reaches the home.
Verizon fiber-optic Internet, TV and home phone all employ FTTH, so Fios® fiber-optic Internet speed isn’t hindered by the presence of copper wiring.
Fiber optics hold a number of important advantages over traditional copper wire networks. For example:
Verizon Fios fiber optics offer super-fast Internet, high-definition television and clear home phone service to customers. It's an incredible value as Fios customers receive a better customer experience for about the same cost as cable.
Verizon Fios uses the most advanced fiber-optic technology available in the industry today. Our future-ready network technology offers superior speed and reliability for everything you do online.
Trust Verizon’s 100% fiber-optic network and trust the professionals at Verizon to give you the best service.4
