Frequently asked questions about Fiber to the Home:
What is fiber optic cabling?
Fiber optic cabling contains various quantities of individual fiber optic strands of glass. Each strand is no larger than the width of a human hair, however it is capable of transmitting enormous amounts for data using pulses of light. Every strand is insulated by several lays of durable material ensuring it is well protected from the elements and capable of providing reliable data transmissions.
What does 1 Gigabit-per-second internet access mean?
A Gigabit-per-second (1Gpbs) literally means having the capability to transmit or receiving 1,000,000,000 bits of information a second. These are the fastest connections currently available to residential customers in the United States.
How soon will I be able to receive Fiber to the Home services?
FEPB now has fiber available in the majority of FEPBs service territory. Please call our office if you are not sure if fiber is available in your area.
How will I connect to Fiber to the Home?
A small fiber optic cable, the width of a standard pencil, will be connected your home to the outside network. Typically this will be an aerial connection, similar to your electric connection.
In instances where electric services are provided underground as opposed to overhead, the line will be buried in your yard. We will, as with all of our services, be diligent in providing as little disruption as possible.
In some circumstances, there may be networking equipment in the public easement near your home. However, this will be in rare cases.
Will I use my current computer or laptop?
Yes, you will use the same computers, laptops, tablets or other devices that you are currently using.
Will I need a router?
The equipment provided to you by FEPB will include a router.
Will I be able to use my Wi-Fi?
Yes, you’ll be able to use Wi-Fi throughout your home just as you do now.
