What is Fiber?

Fiber optic is a state-of-the-art technology that uses bundles of glass threads to transmit information as light signals.  A fiber optic network has the ability to carry much more information than traditional copper wire networks.

In copper networks, information is passed along as electrical signals, which can cause interference within the bundle of wiring.  The light signals in a fiber do not interfere with other fibers in that bundle allowing for clearer phone conversations, faster internet connections, and sharper TV reception.  Because fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) provides the fastest internet available, you can transfer large packets of information quickly and with ease.

Overbuilding a copper network with a state of the art fiber optic network takes time and planning.  RiverStreet Networks is committed to ensuring that you have connections to the things that matter most.  With speeds of up to 1 Gig available on an all FTTH network, you will soon have access to a very impressive and celebrated digital life.
