“TEC offers the fastest Internet available in today’s business world.  Local companies will be able to transfer large amounts of data quickly and seamlessly,” said Joey F. Garner, Executive Vice President. “The single and simplest thing that any business can do to unlock their productivity potential is to have technology that works really well for their entire company.”

According to the FCC in Measuring Broadband Report 2014, companies providing fiber optic Internet connections offer 113 percent of the advertised speed during peak times.  Additionally, the FCC found that fiber Internet has the lowest latency of all of service types tested.    

Garner added, “Even if broadband speeds become 1000 times faster in 10 years, a single existing fiber optic connection will still be able to support it.”

Fiber optic technology uses light instead of electricity to transmit data utilizing higher frequencies and greater capacity levels.  Made from glass or plastic, this allows data to travel greater distances with limited interference and energy loss.
