Which to choose - cable provider such as Spectrum or fiber such as FIOS? Verizon FIOS












You just moved and are trying to decide what to choose - cable or fiber.   Opinions may vary but fiber in my experience is more reliable than cable modem although it may differ in your neighborhood.    Fiber uploads are currently much faster than most cable providers offer.   Fiber is often cheaper for higher bandwidth than cable.   Fiber often offers better quality if you are implementing a VOIP system.  However fiber is not available in all neighborhoods and if you have to have it installed in an area that isn't already lit for fiber it can be costly.

Most ISPs such as Spectrum and Verizon are no longer charging huge differences in high speed internet to the home and lower speeds.   For most homes 100mbit down and 10mbit up is fine.   For businesses higher upload speeds are recommended.

Every year, I would recommend calling your ISP and asking if they can increase the speed without raising the price.   Most of my clients save a significant amount or drastically increase their speed just by having me call their ISP for them.
