If you haven’t had the good fortune of fiber optics yet, that could all change soon. There are a proliferation of home and business owners now obtaining access to fiber optics thanks to services like fiber to the home (FTTH), which is also sometimes called fiber to the premises (FTTP). Fiber to the home is allowing more people than ever before to enjoy better connection speeds with computers and other forms of technology.
How Fiber to the Home Works
So, what is fiber to the home, and more importantly, how does it work? Well, fiber to the home is a process that involves installing optical fiber at a central location before running fiber optic cables to homes, apartments, and businesses that surround it. It’s important for the initial optical fiber to be put in a position that will allow it to deliver the benefits of fiber optics to as many people as it possibly can.
Once the central location has been established and the right designs for it are in place, it’ll be up to a company that specializes in fiber optics to use the right materials to put the location together. It’ll also be up to them to then run fiber optic cables from the central location to homes, apartments, and businesses in the surrounding area. The company may opt to use what’s called fiber to the curb (FTTC) service in some instances, which involves running fiber optic cables to the curbs of homes and businesses before using copper cables to go from the curb to the homes and businesses. But fiber to the home is the better option whenever possible.
