Fiber optic cables allow signals to travel much greater distances (up to 5,000 miles) and at quicker speeds (up to 10 GB a second) than their coaxial counterparts. Less vulnerable to electrical interference as well, fiber-optic cables are able to deliver these signals much more smoothly, often without having to boost or clean a signal that has traveled even a great distance.
However, special care is needed when installing fiber optic cable. Take a look at today's post for helpful tips and guidelines.
