Not all fiber services are created the same, much like broadband. It still depends on your connection. It’s fast because it is not distance-sensitive like copper based, but speeds can vary. However, we can all agree that:
Fiber is way faster than an average broadband speed
You can download more and faster with fiber
Fiber internet is more reliable than copper and has less disconnections than WiFi.
Fiber internet is getting more and more popular in the business environment used in managed services providers. With the increasing number of businesses and organizations needing fiber internet, new fiber service providers are emerging in the market. Fiber internet in homes is limited but residences are gradually shifting to the fiber.

So what is fiber optic internet?
As with the name itself, fiber optics internet connection in Philippines is internet that works through special fibers or strands bundled into optic cables. Unlike copper used in cables and DSL services that are commonly used in the country, optical fibers are made of glass strands used to transmit light—and light travels fast. This type of transmission also transports more data than copper which was originally designed only for voice data such as in early telephone services. Fiber optic internet connection is capable of very high speed upload and download times and, like the ability of light, it does not degrade over long distances. In other words, that means large data sent fast over long distances without loss or interference. It surpasses the traditional internet and has now become the new competition for broadband, DSL, and cable internet services.
What is the speed of fiber optic internet?
Fiber optics is up to 10Gbps. That’s a data transfer rate up to 10 billion bits per second. Here’s a comparison of varying speeds.
Where can I get Fiber Optic Internet for my small business in Philippines?
Telephone companies in the Philippines offer fiber optic internet which are the common used in residential areas. But if you’re looking for the most suitable fiber internet for your small business, we recommend the GPON fiber optic internet. GPON or Gigabit Passive Optical Network doesn’t require an electrical power at the intermediate nodes between the aggregation and the users’ nodes. In other words, it is called “passive” because there is no need for power requirement, switching or routing in between.
GPON is rapidly adopted in business environment because of the significant cost-saving benefit. GPON uses single-mode fiber that delivers 2.5 Gbps of bandwidth to each ONT which then converts optical signals to the signals used in building wiring like Ethernet and wired analogue plain old telephone service. One PON can branch out up to 128 splits. A 32-way split can cover a long distance as far as 20km.
