Copper (DSL)

The most poplar way to wire a home for Internet communication but not the fastest. DSL type internet connection uses copper telephone lines to transmit data. With limited bandwith, companies that have a huge demand for internet usage should not use copper for their internet infrastructure.


The superior choice over copper for Internet communication for multiple reasons. Fiber optic cables are faster, more durable, and more stable. Just how fast are fiber optic cables? 31 percent slower than the speed a light according to research.

Mobile (Wireless)

Convenient but limited bandwith. Mobile Internet is for personal use.
