What is Optic Fiber?

Optic fiber is flexible transparent fiber that has waves of light transmitted through it to communicate to computer systems. Since light is the fastest thing we know of, this makes fiber optic communication a good choice for massive data centers and business needing massive amounts of bandwidth. Plastic fibers also lose less energy over time, and are not affected by electromagnetic interference.

Cogent has some of the world’s largest fiber optic cables stretching in all different areas across the globe, their goal to give cheap bandwidth to absolutely anyone on either side of the world. Check out our Bandwidth Pricing page to see if it would be right for your business!
