Fiber technology has been around for quite some time, but prior to today‟s world it was used to transport services between cities, government and/or large corporations/schools. Today, a growing trend is for communications companies to replace existing infrastructure with fiber. It is said to be the technology of the future because it can provide services to customers that neither DSL or Cable can.
Basically, fiber can carry a very large amount of information on one tiny strand of fiber for a long distance. In the past few years the world‟s internet usage habits have changed dramatically. Previously the Internet was used to read articles, send short text only e-mails and that was about it. Now we are in the video age and want SPEED! This needed speed needs to be given to consumers via a different method, as DSL and Cable Internet connections can be upgraded but eventually will run out of room to grow.
