Fiber Is for the Future: 3 Tech Trends that Will Demand More Bandwidth
In a span of just a few decades, our world has witnessed a technological revolution that has transformed the way we live, work, and communicate. From the advent of personal computers and the internet to the rise of smartphones and cloud computing, technology has developed rapidly in our lifetime.
But with each innovation comes a need for more internet bandwidth that can handle the increase in data usage. That’s why the dial-up connection that powered your home just fine in the 90’s simply can’t cut it now that your house is full of smart TVs, smart home assistants, smartphones, tablets, and computers.

Traditional copper-based networks, which weren’t originally designed to deliver internet, are already struggling to keep up with the surging traffic. That’s why Kaptel is proud to offer fiber internet, the only technology built for internet and with plenty of room to continue scaling up bandwidth for homes and businesses.
This is only going to become more important as technology continues to evolve and require more bandwidth in the years to come. In today’s blog, we take a peek into the future and consider some of the new technologies on the horizon—exciting innovations that our fiber is built to handle!
