What is Fiber Internet? Internet fiber offers symmetrical speeds, which means downloading and downloading are equally fast. Connectivity challenges faced by users when using video conferencing associated with telecommuting, e-learning and telemedicine have highlighted the importance of fast download speeds. Upstate Fiber Networks offers the fastest residential Internet speeds available, ranging from 250 Mbps to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps). For businesses, Upstate Fiber Networks can customize speeds beyond Gigabit capacity if needed.
