Five Reasons to Switch to Fiber Optic Internet for Business

Posted by Sam Mountstephens on Jul 16, 2017 8:30:00 AM

Business moves fast, and your internet needs to keep up. Connecting to the cloud, video conferencing, internet of Things (IoT) devices, and remote employees all take up bandwidth and can slow you down. By speeding up your connection with fiber optic internet, you’ll be able to keep up with your customers and get ahead of your competitors.

Here are five top reasons to make a move to fiber optic internet solutions whether it’s a new install or you just want to upgrade.

1. Future-proof your business

As your business increasingly counts on the web in day-to-day operations, you’re sending and receiving more data, which can crowd your bandwidth and slow your speed to a crawl. And it’s only going to get worse as more apps, services, and technology put demands on your resources.

Fiber gives you the fastest possible connection with, for example, fiber internet powered by AT&T, which blazes at speeds of up to 10Gbps. That will keep your business moving at full-speed today and tomorrow.

2. Reduce latency

Your company is probably doing more of its business in the cloud these days than ever before. Even if not, your customers and partners probably are. While fiber’s symmetric speeds will boost your uploads and downloads, you’ll also have fewer latency worries. In the end, using bandwidth-straining tools will be smoother and quicker when you access the cloud with best-in-class connectivity.

3. Greater reliability

Your customers come to you for a variety of reasons, but they often stop for just one. If you aren’t reliable, even your best customers will go somewhere that they can depend on. This is another way that fiber shines over the copper wiring you're probably used to for your internet connection.

Glass is more reliable as a data conductor than copper, which means a lessened risk of disconnects and downtime than services delivered the old-fashioned way leading to increased reliability. Weather, electromagnetic interference, radio frequency interference, crosstalk, and more can impact the performance of traditional internet cable. The glass core of fiber insulates it and makes it virtually immune to these and other common factors reducing downtime.

4. Easily scalable

While you don’t know where your business may be in 15 or 20 years, preparing for growth is easy when installing or upgrading to fiber internet for your business. With their small size and light weight, new equipment can be put in place initially or laid over old at any point. Wavelengths can be switched on or off as needed, which allows for the easy provisioning of services and quick scaling for a growing business.

5. Better ROI

While fiber cable components and equipment may cost a bit more on the front end, it is a sound investment for the long run. The upfront costs have steadily decreased and fiber typically costs less to maintain, has less downtime, and requires less networking hardware. This may equal a better ROI for your business than keeping or installing outdated technology.

While making a choice to move to fiber optic internet may not seem easy, the long-term benefits to your business and bang for your buck make it the right move.
