Fiber is Much Better than Copper

Murph,

With over 13 years of outside utility construction experience, I can tell you that fiber IS much better than copper. A fiber transmitting a signal at “slow” speed of 2.4 Gbps would replace 3000+ copper wires. Currently fiber can transmit at speeds up to 69 Tbps, verses copper at speeds up to 10 Gbps. Besides being able to transmit more bandwidth, at faster speeds, fiber cables can transmit those signals for miles and miles with little, to no, signal degradation.

Fiber is getting much less expensive to build and maintain. It lasts much longer than copper, and is easier to repair when damaged. When a fiber cable is severed, a technician can measure the distance from one end of the fiber, to the exact location of the fiber break, in a matter of seconds. Once the location is found, the time to repair the fiber cable is only a couple of hours, verses when a 3600 pair coper cable is cut, it takes 2 full days for the technicians to make the repairs.

Fiber is our future in communications.
