Fiber Optic Cable Vs. Coaxial Cable---Which is Better?

Fiber speed:


Super fast. With the right provider, up to 1 Gig (1,000 Mbps) for the home and 10 Gig (10,000 Mbps) for the business. How fast is that? Well, with Gig, you can download an HD movie in 6 seconds, 1,000 photos in 2 seconds, and an online game in 20 seconds!



When considering the speed you need, evaluate your internet habits and the number of devices in use in your location. The results may surprise you.

Coax speed:


In contrast, the data speeds offered by coaxial cables cannot compete with the speeds of fiber optics. As mentioned earlier, the service provided by coaxial cable is usually a shared connection. When users in the specified group are online at the same time, the speed may be slowed down by throttling.



The required modem can be connected to the router to provide a wireless connection. In some cases, one device acts as both a modem and a router.Multi Coax Connector RF CableOther considerations:


Optical fiber is also more attractive to consumers than coaxial cable for many other reasons. Below are just a few examples.


Reliability - No power outages or interruptions during severe weather conditions.


Sustainability - Fiber can adapt to the introduction of new equipment and technologies and is future-proof. As data demands increase, the same fiber optics of today will adapt, while coax service will undoubtedly regress further.


Symmetrical Bandwidth – Uniform upload and download speeds are a significant advantage of fiber optics. Compared to coaxial cable service, the balanced speed of fiber eliminates lag time and allows data to be sent as fast as it is received.


Affordability - Yes! It costs less than or equal to other services, but you get more!


Security - Fiber optics provide maximum security. The only way to penetrate it is to break it.


Increased Property Value - Statistics on fiber's positive impact on property value are readily available.



Fiber is by far the better option. It provides a dedicated connection with stable speed, higher bandwidth and many other advantages.



We are committed to providing high-performing fiber optic cables through professional and reliable capabilities.
