This article is to help new start-ups with advice on how to ensure everything runs smoothly, including the internet connection throughout the building.
Fibre optic cabling and internet is extremely popular in businesses and there is a good reason for it. The speed dominates the internet market and is unmatched by other connections. However, that isn’t the only benefit of having fibre optics for your business.
Fibre optic cabling is almost hack proof, making it one of the most secure networks on the market. Whilst very rare, copper cabling can be hacked into to steal internet, but fibre cannot be tapped this way as the wires would have to be cut, which would take the service down. Advice about preventing hacks.
Also, dedicated fibre optic networks aren’t shared with customers, which provide an extra layer of security.
Internet providers can upgrade the speed of a fibre network with just a single phone call, which makes it easier to meet the needs of a company at any stage throughout their growth. Additional bandwidth and speed helps to power all devices a business may need, such as printers, desktops, card machines and terminals.
Fibre optics allows for enough bandwidth to power all of these devices.
Copper wiring can degrade as the distance between the connection and devices increase, especially when a business grows. Fibre networking doesn’t have this issue as the signal is carried with light, which results in minimal signal loss regardless of the distance. Fibre optic cable speed is fast, no matter the distance.

Fibre cabling is much studier compared to other options which means it is less likely to be damaged, unless it is purposely cut. These internet connections are built to last and some have even been in use for over 30 years. Find out more.
