3 Major Signs It’s Time to Upgrade to Fiber

when to upgrade to fiber

Is your network frustrating and failing you? It may be time to upgrade to fiber.

Every office space requires reliable and extensive network cabling. This network needs to support the operations and equipment of your employees and facilitate fast data transfer and communications required for daily business. Ultimately, you need your network to work for you, not against you. If you are experiencing the following significant problems, it may be time to upgrade your cabling to a faster and more reliable fiber-optic network.

Mediocre Performance

If your Internet and network are sluggish on a good day, this could be due to two reasons. First, you may not have the best Internet plan for the number of users and devices on your network. Or, your cable infrastructure may not be able to support your required download speeds. Fiber-optic cables are designed to support high-speed Internet connections, which every business can benefit from.

Frequent Downtime

If you experience network downtime frequently, this is not acceptable. Downtime from a network outage can be caused by weather, server issues, and accidental cable unplugging but is often the fault of insufficient cables. When you upgrade to fiber cabling, you benefit from cables that can handle frequent and constant use by multiple devices and users. When you upgrade to fiber, select high-quality cables and have a professional cable installer do the upgrade for you.

Damaged Cables

A number of companies may be using outdated cables or worn, frayed, or poorly connected cables in their network system. These cables are not going to give you the performance you require from them. Your business network needs cables that can endure a lot of wear and tear over the years, as well as help you avoid unstable connections and expensive downtime. 

If your business cabling system is experiencing any of these significant problems, it may be the best time for you to upgrade to fiber cabling.
