At C Spire, we spend all day thinking about home internet. So much that we can forget how little the rest of the world thinks about it. And that’s fair. Who really has the time to wonder if the internet will be working tomorrow when they have to complete a school or work project, or stream the grandkids’ dance recital? It should just work.
There is a simple fix, though, and it’s called fiber internet—the most reliable internet connection you can get. And these days, it’s as essential as traditional utilities like electricity, gas and water to enjoying a modern lifestyle.
Here are five times you’ll be glad you have fiber.
Rainy days are the perfect excuse to stay indoors and put that couch to good use. And if you’re going to take it easy, why not binge-watch your favorite shows and movies? Unfortunately, inclement weather can cause your cable or DSL internet to blink, stall and lag, adding unwelcome frustration to the mix. Fiber internet—especially when it’s buried—can eliminate those issues and keep you streaming for as long as you want.
One thing the pandemic taught us is that we can often work or learn from anywhere, as long as there’s a reliable internet connection. School projects involving video calls and online research can be completed at home, as well, and since many schools are becoming more reliant on devices in general, internet reliability is now vital for your (or your kids’) success. Our recommendation? Get always-on fiber internet and stay connected.
When your health and mobility rely on home medical devices, you can’t afford to gamble on your internet. Most of these devices now connect to the internet to deliver real-time reports to your doctor about your vital signs, like heart rate and levels of oxygen and sugars in your blood. While using lesser methods of delivering internet service may save you a few bucks, fiber’s 99.99 percent reliability could save your life.
Birthdays and holidays bring family and friends together to reconnect, celebrate and share our time with the people most important in our lives. These days, though, one of the first questions you may hear is, “What’s your WiFi password?” Fiber internet is your ticket to a hassle-free holiday, with more than enough capacity to handle your entire family and guests without breaking a sweat. Get fiber and hand over that WiFi like a boss.
At the end of a long week, we all need something to look forward to. For lots of households, hosting a movie night is just the ticket for unwinding with your spouse and kids, or even solo. But if you’re using cable, DSL or some fiber providers, your fun might be interrupted by the swirl of the buffering wheel as your internet struggles to keep up. This can be due to weather or having to share some of the signal with your neighbors. Avoid it all with a reliable, direct fiber line.
