The Advantage of Hooking Your Business Up to Fiber-Optics

Fiber optic cable is not necessarily better because light is faster than electricity (please, no angry responses from physicists), but because it overcomes some of the inherent disadvantages of coaxial cable.

It has much more bandwidth (ability to carry data) than coaxial cable so it can carry that traffic much **bleep**her, and is not subject to electromagnetic interference (EMI) from lightning storms, electrical wiring, or fluorescent lights.
