A CONNECTION THAT’S BUILT TO LAST
Bridgenet is now offering Fiber optic Internet in Mpumalanga, and soon the whole of South Africa. Fibre internet is the connection that transfers data fully or partially via fiber optic cables. “Fiber” refers to the thin glass wires inside the larger protective cable. “Optic” refers to the way the type of data transferred – light signals. So, an Internet connection using fiber optic cables is an Internet connection in which data is delivered in light signals via small, flexible glass wires. Think about the speed of light. Your fiber-optic connection won’t deliver data quite that fast because the signal bounces around the wire many times on the way to its destination, but it is still very fast.
