How Fiber Optic Cable Works
Fiber utilizes light waves passing through glass instead of electrons traveling along copper wires. This allows the system to be more reliable, and more than 40 times faster than traditional copper. The data can literally travel at the speed of light. Using Fiber Optic technology, LightGig is already building its system to be prepared to serve residential and business customers with up to 10Gig/second download and upload speeds.
