Fiber Internet Benefits

Super Fast

Fiber internet outperforms any other broadband technology, reaching unmatched speeds with low lag time and sending data as fast as about 70% the speed of light.

Improved Connectivity

Fiber connections can easily support remote work, education, telehealth, video conferencing, streaming, gaming, e-commerce, and more for individuals and families.

More Reliable

Fiber is the most reliable internet technology, delivering a signal less susceptible than cable, copper, or spectrum-based services to interference or deterioration of performance due to distance or climate conditions.

Future-Proof

Fiber is capable of handling the increasing demand for bandwidth, allowing service to remain affordable and efficient for years to come. 

Supports Businesses

Fiber gives businesses access to the bandwidth needed to quickly store and access information in the cloud, connect with remote employees and clients through video calls, maintain their online presence through websites and social media, and more.

Home Values Increase

Fiber makes your home more marketable to future homebuyers. Home values can increase by 3% to 7% with fiber connectivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who will I see working in my area while this project is underway?

    SKT technicians will perform portions of the work; however, due to the scope of this project, SKT has hired contractors to assist with the engineering design and construction. All SKT contractors will have an “SKT Contractor” identification on their vehicles.

  • What is fiber internet?

    Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) refers to the installation and use of fiber optic cables to carry digital information directly to homes and businesses. These cables can contain anywhere from one to hundreds of individual fibers, which are long, thin strands of pure glass about the diameter of a human hair.
