Sparklight’s hybrid fiber-cable internet connection plans that have symmetrical download and upload speeds of up to 940 megabits per second. Speeds at this level typically are marketed as 1 Gig service. Hybrid networks can transmit video, audio, internet data, cable TV, and other digital interactive solutions.

How hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) networks combine fiber optic and coaxial cables into one path is ingenious. The optical fiber cable normally runs either underground or along above-ground poles to a point near the home. To get the fiber signal inside the home, a technician installs an Optical Network Terminal (ONT) outside and connects the fiber cable directly to the ONT.

The ONT acts like a modem specifically for fiber internet connections. The ONT converts light fiber network signals into copper and electric signals. These signals travel from the ONT to your Wi-Fi router via a different type of cable; an Ethernet cable that plugs directly into your router or via an Ethernet wall jack. Your router broadcasts the signal to your other devices.

Fiber signals require a fiber optic router that can transmit the signal at the speeds provided by the provider network to your home network. A non-fiber router lacks this capability. Fiber routers work by sending pulses of infrared light through optical cables made of glass fibers. They can carry data at extremely high speeds that a non-fiber router cannot support. A fiber Internet service offers faster speeds, better reliability, and bigger bandwidths than regular routers. Fiber optic connections remain strong, even during peak hours. Sparklight's WiFi ONE service provides enhanced Wi-Fi signal strength to extend and improve the Wi-Fi signal throughout your home.
