Verizon FiOS is Ready for New Technology
Written by Russell Blanc of iFiberCompany
Verizon FiOS is the only TV, Internet and phone service that is ready to handle advancements in technology. New advances in technology are changing the way that Internet content, TV programs, and movies are delivered to consumers everyday. Some of the latest advances in TV service, like the constant improvement of HD TV, can make a big difference in the quality of the content that consumers see.
But consumers who are still using outdated cable and satellite TV and Internet service won't get any of the benefits of the new technology that is being developed because the networks that cable and satellite providers use won't be sophisticated enough to handle new technology.
Cable companies use a network of copper cables to deliver TV programming and Internet service into people's homes. Those networks of cables have been used for more than twenty years and have never been updated or upgraded. Because the cable networks have not been upgraded over the years, they can't process the kind of high density TV and Internet content that companies are creating today.
Verizon FiOS built a brand new network of optic fiber cables from the ground up so that they would be ready to handle bigger streams of data now, and in the future. Optic fiber cables don't degrade the data that is being transferred the way that coaxial cables do so the images that you see on the TV and the computer will be richer, more clear, and more brilliant than images seen after they travel along traditional wires.
Fiber optic cables are an innovative alternative to traditional coaxial cable networks and satellite technology because the thick optic fibers that makeup the network process data differently than traditional cables. When data travels along a copper cable it's compressed to fit into the cable, and any data that doesn't fit gets lost during the process. So the picture that you see on your TV isn't the same picture that was originally sent.
The picture you see will be weaker and not as clear as the original image. Fiber optic cables don't drop data like traditional cables so the picture that you see is clear, sharp, and bright. Internet data sent through optic fiber cables is much faster than cable or satellite Internet service and lets you do all the things you want to do online like playing graphic heavy video games without any lag time.
Satellite service isn't much better than the service provided by cable companies. Satellite feeds are notoriously fragile, and something as simple as a storm can knock out satellite service for hours. Satellite services are just not able to process the kinds of media files that are being made today. As technology changes and as TV service and Internet service become even more complex satellite and cable services just won't be able to keep up. The fiber optic network that Verizon FiOS operates on will be able to change and adapt to more advanced technology throughout the years. If you want to have TV service, Internet service and home phone service that will be able to keep pace with changing technology and not let you down, switch to Verizon FiOS.
