What is Fiber?

 Fiber optic technology consists of a bundle of tubes, each of which is capable of transmitting messages modulated onto light waves. This allows communication to be sent and received at a much higher, more consistent speed. Those with fiber optic internet no longer need to suffer through slow internet speeds or buffering. They can download and send large files in seconds, stream high quality video seamlessly, download entire HD movies in minutes or stream multiple videos simultaneously while still having enough connectivity to browse the internet.  Although this type of communication is usually only located in larger cities, Tombigbee Communications Is working to bring this service to Northwest Alabama.
