Powerful Connections that Fuel Transformative Technologies

Strengthen business continuity plans over a high-performance fiber backbone to enable remote work, distance learning, telepresence, virtual classes, telemedicine and more. Fiber internet empowers businesses to adapt and maintain operations, under any circumstances, with the ability to scale bandwidth to the needs at hand. It also helps to future proof business plans with the infrastructure and technology to be prepared for whatever comes next.


How Does Fiber
Internet Work?

Fiber-optic broadband makes up the backbone of the global telecommunications systems, serving as the main connective pathways for most of the world’s internet, TV and telephone services. Historically, fiber optics were used exclusively to connect cities and countries. However, Mediacom has made a significant investment to build a coast-to-coast network spanning over 600K miles to make fiber readily available to our business customers.

Fiber Internet Features

Fiber delivers the fastest and most reliable internet connection, with speeds that can reach up to 10 Gigabit and beyond for downloading and uploading. That’s orders of magnitude faster than the typical DSL connection.

Fiber-optic broadband offers everything you want in an internet connection:
  • Extremely fast download speeds
  • Symmetrical speed – which means equivalent performance whether you’re downloading or uploading
  • Reliability
  • Robust signal strength

Businesses are unlikely to experience the kind of speed drags common to other types of shared connections during peak hours of use. A fiber connection will deliver speedy, consistent performance with nearly imperceptible lag.

How Fast is Fiber Internet?

  • Fiber can deliver speeds up to 40 times faster than the typical broadband connection, based on the FCC benchmark for what constitutes broadband speeds — allowing users to optimize internet use across all devices
  • Fiber internet service transmits data up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) — or 1,000 megabits per second
  • Fiber is distributed using light wave technology through a fiber-optic cable to deliver superior data, voice and video capabilities. It's exceptionally secure and reliable because it runs on a dedicated, private fiber-optic network and not the open public internet

Benefits of Fiber-Optic Broadband:

The most immediate benefit is the astonishing speed – information sharing, transferring & downloading files are instantaneous. Working with remote locations is seamless; staff can access data in real time simultaneously, so communications is never a challenge. Your business will finally have the data throughput it needs via our fiber "pipe".

Scalability is key for a business to be agile and adapt to market changes. The investment in fiber is made once. If there is a need to turn up bandwidth – it’s simply a phone call away and doesn’t require additional construction costs.

100% Fiber Solutions

Not all fiber is created equal. Some providers tout fiber connectivity but in reality, its simply enhanced DSL, a shared
product and not dedicated or worse - a best effort service. Mediacom Business provides a true point-to-point fiber connection.

Transparent LAN Service

Schools, healthcare systems and other institutions can seamlessly connect their point-to-point and multi-point Ethernet networks together in the same campus, city, region, or across states.

Using Mediacom Business’ fiber backbone, allows multi-location operations to work off the same server, no matter where they are. We use Ethernet protocol, so there is no need for additional equipment.

Dedicated Internet Access

Whether you're looking to reduce lag time among simultaneous internet users or seeking faster data downloads without interruption, Dedicated Internet Access enables secure, fast and private connections to the public internet.

You can allocate bandwidth for each of your locations based upon their specific needs. Provisioning additional bandwidth is fast and simple without the need for construction.

Customer Stories

Ceaseless Monitoring

While many providers claim they have the resources and ability to build out a fiber network, few if any, have the expertise that Mediacom Business has gained managing and monitoring such a network for over 15 years. With 24/7/365 network analytics, our fiber network averages 99.999%* reliability.

Our network reliability and performance are checked continually at our Network Operations Center (NOC) by a staff of experienced IP engineers that provide businesses with enterprise level support. They work around the clock to make sure our customers' services are operating efficiently and securely.

Factors That Can Affect Business Internet Speed

The actual speed a subscriber experiences may vary based on a number of factors including, but not limited to:

  • Variances in network usage
  • The capabilities and capacities of the customer’s computer and/or local area network (LAN) devices such as wireless routers
  • Latency (i.e., the time delay in transmitting or receiving packets as impacted in significant part by the distance between points of transmission)
  • The performance of the content and application providers the consumer is accessing, such as a search engine or video streaming site
  • Performance characteristics of transmissions over portions of the internet that are not subject to Mediacom’s control
