Why fiber optics is the best option to connect to the internet

There is no doubt that every tool that surrounds the internet is advancing by leaps and bounds. In a few years we have seen various technologies in their different stages since their birth and heyday, and even in some cases, their death as the analog – DSL -. Likewise, we have seen the development of the emergence of broadband with ADSL and VDSL as solutions that partially replaced and improved analog, going from a few kbps to a couple of mbps, reaching hundreds of mbps today thanks to fiber optics.

A technology emerged that is widely used today to distribute the internet to homes and companies. We are talking about HFC (or hybrid coaxial fiber), which is not the same as FTTH (or optical fiber), since it was approached as a practical and cheaper solution to resist the tremendous impact on the cost of using fiber optic cable. Direct to the end customer. 

And coming to your days there will be the optical fiber or FTTH whose acronym stands for fiber to the home with unifi 800mbps package. This type of technology allowed that, through a beam of light, several benefits can be delivered, such as high speeds, achieving GBPS and even TBPS, which before could be unthinkable.

In short, and without going into technicalities, the optical fiber is a transparent thread that allows the flow of data through light pulses. The translucent material and pulses of light allow data to move from one point to another. These data packets are transmitted with a residual error rate, practically zero; it also does not present electromagnetic interference and arrives safely.

That is to say, now that we enter into cold times (beginning of winter), and in an era that we depend almost exclusively on electricity, if all your neighbors decide to use high electrical consumption equipment such as washers, dryers, dishwashers, air conditioners or electric stoves, they will generate important fluctuations in the electrical demand of the area, creating voltage drops and surges that affect the transmission of pulses in the optical fiber. Anyway, it is still the most stable and of the best quality today.
