What is fiber optic cable and why would I want it for my business?
Fiber optic cable consists of very thin, very pure glass, allowing more fibers to be bundled in a size equivalent to copper cable. Data transmitted through fiber optic cable travels in the form of light at 186,000 miles per second! Unlike copper, the light signal in one fiber doesn't interfere with signals in other fiber optic cables, so it provides both clearer phone conversations and faster data transfers.
Why Fiber Optic Internet from CPI? DSL and Cable are copper-based Internet connections. While they try to compete with FIBER OPTIC, connections, they can't even come close. Copper has severe limitations due its inherent characteristics, such as loose connections, corrosion and distance restrictions. In contrast, CPI's FIBER OPTIC network's optical signal cannot get "loosened," the fiber can't corrode and it has NO KNOWN distance limitations. Hence fiber offers SUPER Fast Internet Connection Speeds Starting at 1.5Mb!
Your upload and download speeds are always the same. DSL and Cable typically offer a much higher download speed vs. upload speed. Usually the upload speed is at least half the download speed. This means you may get email attachments quickly but can only SEND them at one-half the speed! In contrast, the download and upload speeds of CPI FIBER OPTIC connections are always the SAME, ensuring you the FASTEST connection in both directions. Internet connections ranging from T-1 speeds and up are available. The fiber ring and its unparalleled speed are perfectly suited for those wishing to telecommute through the Internet or connect their offsite locations at 100Mb to 1000Mb speeds.
True HIGH SPEED connections that are NOT “over-subscribed.” DSL and Cable companies make their money by severely over-subscribing their customer base. Over-subscribed simply means more Internet is trying to go out rather than come in, causing EVERYBODY to slow way down. For example, if a DSL Internet Provider (ISP) buys a 10Mb Internet connection, they may divide it into 1000 1.5Mb connections to sell to their customers. It pays to watch the fine print in DSL and Cable product brochures. They typically say they offer “speeds up to," but this really means that once in a while you MIGHT get the top speed you thought you purchased, but high use periods (morning and after 5:00pm) will ALWAYS be much slower than late evening and early mornings. Other the other hand, with our CPI network, customers get the speeds they pay for!
Higher reliability and far less down time. Outdoor copper based networks (DSL & Cable) struggle with connection reliability caused by loose connections and corrosion. Typical downtime for a copper system is measured in hours if not days throughout the year. But the precision built fiber optic network CPI engineered throughout Port Angeles and Sequim cannot have a “loose connection“ and glass doesn't corrode! Furthermore, CPI's fiber optic network has TWO Internet feeds off the Peninsula ensuring a REDUNDANT path, should one of the feeds fail for any reason. Consequently, our network down time averages less than 15 minutes per year. If your work halts and/or employees are standing around because the company Internet connection is down, the overall cost savings of a rock solid fiber optic connection is significant!
