Happy #TechnologyTuesday! Today’s #FiberFact: Fiber is more SECURE. It’s much easier for uninvited guests (hackers!) to tap into electrical wiring than it is for them to tap into fiber optics. Since fiber doesn’t radiate electromagnetic energy, data cannot be intercepted. Physically tapping fiber takes great skill and cost to go undetected. So rest easy ALLO customers, your information is SAFER with FIBER!

It’s #TechnologyTuesday and it’s time for another #fiberfact! Fiber is FASTER. Data is transmitted faster because of the increased capacity of fiber optic cables. Fiber can theoretically send terabytes per second of data without so much as a 3% data loss over 100 meters. Copper cabling suffers significant signal loss, up to 94% over 100 meters. Further proof your data goes the distance with ALLO.

Happy #TechnologyTuesday, here’s your #FiberFact for the day…
Did you know fiber is GREEN? The energy cost to send an electrical signal over miles of wiring is dozens of times the amount of energy needed to send a brief flash of light over the same distance with fiber. Lower energy = lower carbon footprint. Just one more reason to feel good about ALLO service.
