Why make the switch to fiber internet? Fiber Internet | By Northland Communications TeamWe all know that the internet is critical. It’s how we connect with our friends, family, and as a business, our customers. But what if your current internet service isn’t fast enough to do all of those things?Fiber internet is faster, more reliable, and more secure than traditional cable internet. Using fiber-optic technology, fiber optic internet can reach speeds of up to 940 Megabits per second. Data is transferred over fiber optic cables that are less susceptible to severe weather conditions than traditional cables, thus reducing outages.With Northland’s fiber network, we provide excellent performance standards as well as a guarantee of 99.999% uptime. Northland’s fiber network is Full Duplex, which means bandwidth speeds are the same upstream and downstream.Here’s why you should make the switch: Symmetrical Speeds:Fiber download and upload speeds are symmetrical. A broadband connection’s bandwidth is measured by two numbers. Your download speed is the first number, which you use for most internet activities. A second number represents your upload speed, which is used to upload videos or documents to the cloud. Most broadband services offer very low upload speeds, but with fiber internet, it provides upload speeds that match their download.Productivity:Enhances productivity by speeding up existing network applications.Backups:Automates and improves your process using a third-party backup service provider.Northland’s high-speed Fiber Internet is available across all of Central New York, including Syracuse, Oneida, Rome, and Utica.
