What is “fiber” internet and do i need it

Question: I was recently contacted that fiber internet service will soon be available in my area. The company representative said it depends on the price I pay. What are the pros and cons of switching to fiber? Would it be better to wait for this company for a while? Thank you.

Answer: From where this Geek sits, it’s just a matter of technological progress. The question you asked was probably asked when everyone was dialing in, and broadband service began to operate as Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and cable. At the time, both of these technologies existed and were stable, but they were not well known to the average user, so many questions were raised about them. Today, they are considered a solid, tried and true method of connecting to the Internet, but it depends more on the quality of the service provider than the underlying technology.
