Top 8 Reasons You Need Fiber For Your Home


Internet connectivity is an essential part of our daily lives. Whether it’s for work or play, you and your family have a need for speed and reliability. The right service plan can get you there, but there are many things to consider when making a decision. Read on to learn more about the top eight benefits of fiber internet:

1. The Need for Speed
Good internet connectivity is all about speed for streaming your favorite shows, gaming, surfing the web or file sharing. You need it now, and you need it to work.

Fiber internet is many times faster than copper cable internet connections like DSL or Ethernet. In fact, fiber optics carry data close to the speed of light! With fiber internet, you can work or play to your heart’s content without slowing down during high-demand times.

Additionally, with BEC fiber internet you benefit from equal upload and download times called "symmetric speed.” Symmetric speed allows you to upload and download video content and files and surf the web simultaneously without delays.

2. Bandwidth
Bandwidth is like a pipeline for water. The bigger the pipe, the more water, or in this case data, can flow through. Fiber internet’s bandwidth is significantly higher, and speed does not decrease as demand increases. Meaning you can watch a high-definition movie in one room while your kids play online video games in the next without delays or poor video quality.

3. Reliability
Reliability is key. You need to be able to count on your connection to be there when you need it. Fiber isn’t susceptible to the harsh, Texas weather conditions like cable. Rain or shine, fiber streams on.

4. Signal Strength
Think of fiber as a champion long-distance runner. Fiber signal strength stays strong over long distances, whereas cable internet connections like DSL or Ethernet signals weaken as you get farther from the switch. Coming in first, it’s BEC fiber by a long shot!

5. Access to the Cloud
The cloud is another essential part of our lives. You can use it to store those priceless photos and videos or keep a backup of all your phone contacts. The uses go on, but first you need a good, fast connection to access it. With fiber internet’s speed and bandwidth, you can access your cloud-based data and applications more quickly.

6. Security
Your personal information is a valuable resource in the hands of the wrong person. Hackers can tap into cable internet lines and easily gain access, but they can’t penetrate fiber-optic cables without physically cutting the cables and causing a loss of signal. In short, using fiber internet helps safeguard your personal information against those who would do you wrong.

7. Support for HD Video
Sure, watching movies at home is great, but watching them in HD is even better. Fiber gives you the fastest, most reliable connection to get the absolute best viewing experience possible.

8. Cost and Customer Service
With BEC Fiber, you’ll get competitive pricing and unmatched, local customer service. We work hard every day to meet and exceed your expectations. If you should have any issues, please do not hesitate to call us at 866.226.3372.
