One of the most common questions we get is, "Why do I want fiber?"
We've created a one page handout that may help answer that question. You can download it by clicking on the PDF icon.
Here is some of the reasons you want fiber:
- Work from home--full time, part time, or nights/weekends. We give you the freedom to choose!
- Run a business from home, or run a server from home.
- Connect more TVs, laptops, computers, tablets, printers, and servers and have them all work at the speed of light!
- Use all the bandwidth you want without worrying about slowdowns, overage charges, or data caps.
- Watch TV, movies, sports,and video at the highest possible quality--a better entertainment experience!
- Put home security cameras around your house and get notifications, live HD video, and sound right on your tablet or smartphone, wherever you are.
- Connect to the Virginia Tech network or your company VPN as if you were sitting in your office at work.
- Make full use of cloud services at blazing fast speed.
- Seamlessly connect multiple business locations and offices.
- Home-based employees can fully participate because videoconferencing works like it is supposed to with no stuttering, drop outs, or screen slowdowns.
- Get an inexpensive home phone line that actually provides a high quality connection without annoying drops.
- Fiber makes back up services like Carbonite, Amazon, and Mozy work the way they are supposed to with no waiting.
