The scoop about Verizon’s fiber-optic internet

Not all internet service providers (ISPs) are the same, check out the Fios difference.

How we deliver your connection.

Fios stands for fiber-optic service. Verizon delivers a fiber-optic connection right to your home making your connection even faster and more reliable. Many internet companies provide fiber-optic service up to a shared hub then distribute the connection using wire cables (DSL) to homes in your neighborhood.

How fiber-optic internet works.

Fiber-optic cables are a collection of long, thin strands of glass or plastic. These strands are called optical fibers. Cables containing optical fibers have several hundreds of these strands bundled together. Your data travels by light signals bouncing off the fiber strands within the cables to different meeting points.
