Fiber is the newest innovation in high-speed internet service—it’s also the oldest. The core of the internet was built on fiber-optic lines, which have been connecting cities, countries, and continents for decades.
You’ve only heard about it more in recent years because internet service providers (or ISPs) are answering increased consumer demand for faster, more reliable internet access connections by bridging what’s called “the last mile,” or the gap between the fiber-optic backbone of the internet and homes and businesses.
That gap has typically been filled by the aging copper cable infrastructures of phone and coaxial lines, which is like jamming lightning through an AA battery—you’re only experiencing a fraction of the internet’s potential power and faster speeds. New fiber-optic technology is here to fix that with its super high speeds.
These are our favorite fiber internet service providers for business, based on our research.
