Velocity Broadband FAQs
- Fiber offers the fastest internet speeds - Fiber-optic Broadband Internet is the Gold standard of the industry.

- More reliable and resilient, fiber uses technology that allows for future expansion of technology and speed.
Made of very thin strands of glass or plastic called optical fibers help carry the light signals regardless of bends or curves in the cable. Each cable can hold several optical fibers. Fiber uses light signals to carry internet data, which is better for data transmission over long distances than cable’s electrical signals. Fiber cables can carry much more bandwidth than similarly sized copper cables and are less prone to signal interference.

We are very pleased with Velocity's gigabit broadband service in our new Hudson, Ohio location. We increased our downstream bandwidth by more than 10x on average and our upstream by more than 100x at about the same price we were paying before for Time Warner's Business Class service. Of course, speed is of limited value without reliability. We have been using Velocity Broadband for more than three months now, and the reliability has been excellent so far.Managing Director at Informediate Mark D. Kaucic
