Residential What Is Fios

What is Verizon Fios Internet?

Fios is a 100% fiber-optic network that delivers state-of-the-art TV, internet, and digital phone straight to your home.

Why is Fios Internet better?

How does Fios work?

Using the power of fiber-optic lines that transmit data more efficiently than copper cable, Fios sends high-capacity internet, TV, and phone signals straight to your home.

Fiber to the home vs fiber to the node.

Many cable TV and internet service providers run a fiber-optic line into a neighborhood hub called a node. Copper wires then transmit data and TV signals from the node to the home but these copper wires don’t have the same bandwidth capacity or speed efficiency of a fiber-optic line. In contrast, Fios runs fiber directly to your home for unbeatable reliability.

Why is fiber service faster?

Unlike copper cable lines, fiber-optic lines are made up of strands of glass. These strands transmit information at almost the speed of light and transfer vast amounts of data much more efficiently than copper wire.
