What is fiber-optic TV?

Fiber-optic TV uses thin cables made of glass or plastic to transmit information via pulses of light. This technology gives fiber-optic TV providers the bandwidth needed to send large amounts of data, perfect for delivering high channel counts, HD picture and a reliable signal. Popular TV providers that use fiber-optic technology include AT&T, Frontier and Verizon. Shop fiber-optic TV plans from these providers and more with Allconnect®.

How does fiber-optic compare to cable?

Fiber-optic and cable services are similar, but they use different cables to bring you TV and internet. Here’s a look at how fiber-optic and cable TV services compare:

  • Availability: Fiber is only available to about 30% of the population, whereas cable is available to nearly 90%, according to the FCC.
  • Pricing: Fiber-optic and cable TV bundles are priced fairly evenly. However, fiber typically delivers higher channel counts and faster speeds for the cost, which can make fiber-optic the more cost-effective choice.
  • Channel counts: Since fiber-optic cables generally provide more bandwidth, fiber-optic TV packages often give you more channel options with up to 550+ channels available in some areas.
  • Picture quality: Both service types offer HD channels and programming, but reliability and total HD channels is generally higher with fiber-optic.
  • Bundle options: The high channel counts and fast internet speeds you get with fiber-optics make it a great choice for quality TV and internet bundles. If you don’t need a lot of channels or very fast internet speeds, consider a low-cost cable bundle.
