The internet is the heartbeat of the modern home. We’ve come to rely on it for work, education, entertainment, and shopping. Fiber is the best solution to provide internet because it is:
Symmetrical speeds are when upload and download speeds are equal. Older mediums like cable and DSL are asymmetrical, meaning you aren’t able to upload data as quickly as you can download it. When your speeds are symmetrical it means video calls work better, video games play faster, and your photos upload in an instant.
The conduit we’re laying in your area contains fiber strands that will lead directly into your home. Each strand contains glass that refracts pulses of light, which is how data is sent to and from the devices in your home. This is much faster than traditional methods of sending data through electricity using copper wire.
First thing’s first – 5 Gig is different (and better) than 5G. “5G” is simply the name of a radio frequency used for wireless internet and is not an indication of speed. 5 Gig (short for 5 Gigabit) is a measure of how much speed you’ll get with a wired connection to IQ Fiber’s 100% fiber-optic network. 5 Gig is equal to 5,000 Megabits, which is the fastest residential speed available in most areas of North Florida.
So, how fast is 5 Gig exactly? For reference, streaming a 4k movie takes about 25 megabits per second of bandwidth. With 5 Gig internet, you could stream 200 4k movies at the same time with no lag! Stream, game, work from home, and connect as many household devices as you can imagine without any buffering. Homes are only becoming more connected over time, which is why faster internet is always better.
Yes. In most cases you will be able to keep your existing services. However, once you move to our services, you’ll have enough speed and bandwidth to manage all your services over the internet.
It’s also easy to move to a voice-over-internet-protocol (VOIP) service like Google Voice or Vonage where you can keep your phone number. You always have the option to remove your home phone altogether in favor of using your cell exclusively instead. Most national security monitoring companies offer “cut the cable cord” services with faster response times than a landline can offer.
