Fiber-optics is the best technology in the world for delivering Internet service to homes and businesses. Fiber Internet is 100x faster than anything else and you're going to love it!
In Helena, we've been waiting longer for Fiber Internet than most other cities in Montana. Our area's geography is challenging, and our city fairly small, so we've been left with old-fashioned, slower connections to the rest of the world. It's bad enough to have to wait for a video or a web page, but when slow speeds affect our medical facilities, or schools, or put local businesses at a disadvantage, clearly the situation is serious. It's about time we did something about our Internet connections --- we are the state Capitol after all!
Fiber optic cables are made of spun glass, surrounded by protective insulation. They can carry almost infinite amounts of data at -- literally -- the speed of light. They don't require much power and hold a signal for a really long distance. We need to replace, or at least augment, the old copper cables that currently go to our homes and office buildings with fiber optics, or "fiber."
With the support of the community behind us, we believe that Montana Internet can successfully bring the Fiber Revolution to Helena and beyond! Ready to rock your Internet? We thought so!
