About Fiber

Fast and Dependable

The F&B Communications Fiber Optic network allows customers to receive advanced internet, video and phone services. Some providers use a “shared” network concept while F&B has designed a system with a dedicated fiber optic strand to each home and business. These connections can deliver up to 1 gigabit of bandwidth to every subscriber on the network.

Benefits of Fiber Fiber Internet Expansion Project

F&B fiber service is available in 100% of our service area in Bennett, Calamus, Delmar, Lowden, Massillon, Toronto, Wheatland and surrounding rural areas.

F&B has been recognized by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association as a Certified Gig-Capable Provider for delivering gigabit broadband speeds and enabling technological innovation. As a Certified Gig-Capable Provider, F&B joins a national campaign to build awareness and industry recognition of community-based telecom providers that have built communications networks capable of delivering Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, which is 100 times faster than those currently available in many U.S. households.

Benefits Of Fiber

  • Faster Data Transfer – Information transferred over fiber optic connections is super-fast. Fiber connections offer low latency and have the capability of offering synchronous download and upload speeds.
  • Highly Secure – Fiber cables are made of thin strands of glass and not prone to electromagnetic interference. F&B’s fiber cables are buried; protecting them from harsh environmental factors such as storms, snow and winds.
  • Ample Bandwidth – Fiber optic technology provides lots of bandwidth to support multiple devices. There is sufficient power to connect multiple laptops, tablets, mobile devices and other smart-home technology.
  • Dedicated Connection – F&B’s network is architected with a dedicated fiber to each subscriber. This eliminates congestion and other bottlenecks that can impact performance on traditional shared networks.
