Importance of Fiber Network Services for Businesses in Any Industry

by Kristen White Blogger

Business success relies on many factors, but a reliable internet connection is the backbone of the business. Without the internet, the business comes to a standstill and productivity takes a hit which could result in pushing the business to the back. In this competitive world, every second counts.

Enterprises cannot afford to lose precious moments fixing their internet connection or waiting for the files to upload/download. A high-speed, trustworthy internet connection will ensure that employees have access to a network that will seamlessly provide them with the connection required to collaborate, share, and complete their work on time.

Even though the cost of using fiber optic internet for business was high a few years ago. However, the increasing demand has led to an increase in competition between service providers.

In today’s market, fiber network costs just a little over copper cables and is doubly efficient.

Many businesses have started the process of switching over from copper cables to a fiber optics network to capitalize on a more reliable connection for the following reasons.

Long Distance Connectivity

Do you know that copper cables can transmit data over only 100 meters? Yes, a longer distance is possible. But not without disruptions and sudden lack of connectivity! Fiber optics, on the other hand, can transmit data over 24 miles with ease.

Weather, electromagnetic fields, and physical sabotage can make things worse when using copper cables over long distances. There is hardly any comparison between the two cables.

Faster Data Transmission

Fiber optic cables transmit data in the form of light and are just 27% slower than the actual speed of light. This simply means that a file shred through a fiber optic cable is the same as what it might take to share just one large file over copper cables.

Faster data transmission means faster work and increased productivity.

Effective Cable Management

One thing that most enterprises end up having to manage is the bunch of cables that provide the internet connection. They need to be cared for so that they don’t get tangled, twisted, or broken and result in loss of connectivity.

One copper is four times the width of a fiber optic cable and can carry only a fraction of its load. A fiber-optic network up less space and this is highly advantageous when the offices have limited space.

Future-Proof Network

Setting up an internet network will incur costs. Whether it is copper cables or fiber optics, the cost of investment will be more or less similar. But enterprises who have chosen to invest in a network that doesn’t need to be regularly upgraded are seeing the benefits from a cost perspective.

An existing setup should serve the business for at least a few years without causing too many issues. A fiber optics network is future-proof and lasts for a long time.


When enterprises utilize fiber network services for business, they get greater bandwidth. Businesses that share large files every day require a network connection that allows greater bandwidth to accommodate the file size.

Collaborations will become easier with increased bandwidth availability and one of the most important differences, the network will not crash due to overload.

With all of the reasons for businesses to make the change, it is still crucial that the right provider is selected. Each enterprise has different needs, so working with a provider who can create a package on the vast network and can provide 24*7 technical support, is the way to go. Enterprises can be assured that the company will available at all times to troubleshoot errors.
