Essentially, fiber optics are microscopic strands of glass. However, this glass is somewhat more sophisticated than normal glass. When connected to a transmitter at one end and a receiver at the other end, digital bytes of information travel along the fiber strands at the speed of light - 186,000 miles per second!

Think UPLOAD Speed?
DSL and Cable Modems offer very limited upload speed (sometimes less than 10% of the download speed). How important is the infomation that you send? High Upload Speeds are critical to remote access to your network from home or while traveling.
The wide and growing influence of the Internet and large computer file sharing have made high speed telecommunications a critical service for business. Unfortunately, most communities do not have the ability to provide the benefits of a fiber optic system to its businesses or citizens. As a municipally-owned utility, HMP&L can offer fiber optic services at affordable rates. This allows Henderson to implement the latest technology and keep their costs low to compete in a global economy.
