Yes. Fiber-optic internet is a completely different technology than DSL or cable internet, and therefore requires a different type of modem. In many cases, you can get the required modem from your internet provider at no extra cost.

There are many factors that can influence internet speed. In many cases, restarting your router will resolve speed and connectivity issues. Other factors, such as peak usage times and speed throttling can also cause temporary speed issues.

Fiber and cable internet are similar internet service types, but fiber offers a few advantages over cable. Fiber internet can deliver faster upload and download speeds than cable in most areas, and is less vulnerable to slowed speeds during peak usage times. Cable does have the advantage over fiber in terms of availability, covering 89% of U.S. households compared to fiber’s 38%.

If you suspect your slow speeds are the result of your internet provider throttling your connection, the easiest way to determine if you’re being throttled is to perform two speed tests. Run the first test on your regular network, then run the second one on a VPN. If the two speeds are drastically different (and the VPN test was higher), your internet provider may be throttling your speeds.
