Fiber Optic Cable is made up of small strands of glass that use light instead of electricity to carry data. Data travels over fiber much like copper cable, except fiber offers a vast amount of bandwidth for delivery of cutting edge service.
Next Gen technology that keeps you moving.
Fiber optic cable is less susceptable to weather related issues, electrical interference, or other outside sources. This allows PennBroadband to provide you with a more dependable phone, TV or internet service.
A value boost of nearly $5k
Not installing fiber optic when you have the chance would be similar to not having electricity 80 years ago. A recent study found that access to fiber may increase a home's value by up to 3%. The boost to a typical home is almost $5,000. That is roughly equivalent to adding a fireplace or half of a bathroom!
Fiber optic is not dependant on distance. Light can travel far without any weakening of the signal. Increased bandwidth on fiber optic cable allows for the possiblity of higher download and upload speeds. This gives PBB the capacity to allow you to do things much faster over the internet!
