What is the difference between a fiber-optic connection and a conventional broadband connection?
The most significant difference lies in reliability. Conventional broadband connections are more likely to be affected by electricity outages, data losses, and adverse weather conditions. Fiber-Optic connections operate on GPON, which is a passive medium and hence doesn’t require any power supply for data transmission, only the Optical Network Terminal (Device) that is installed at your home needs to be powered. In addition, fiber-optic connections are highly scalable for future bandwidth hungry applications, providing bandwidth capacity up to 1 Gbps.
