Where is OnlineNW Fiber Available?
What is OnlineNW Fiber Internet?
The OnlineNW Fiber Network consists of miles of fiber optic cables. Inside these cables there are many strands of fiber optic cables, about as thin as a human hair. We use one single strand of fiber to deliver data at speeds up to 1 Gbps (1000Mbps), roughly 100 times faster than the average home in the US today.
If you are on the Internet, you are using fiber for some portion of your connection. Both DSL and cable modem system networks rely heavily on fiber for parts of their network, but the actual connection to your house (frequently called the ‘last mile‘) uses copper phone lines or coaxial cable lines. The bottleneck generally occurs over the last-mile.
Neither phone lines or cable can offer the speeds we need to remain competitive in the digital economy. DSL over phone lines is limited by distance; the signal degrades for those living more than 1 mile away from the central office. Even for those living close to a central office, the top speeds are not comparable to speeds commonly offered with an all fiber connection.
Cable systems tend to offer faster download speeds than DSL but cable systems use a shared network to cover the last mile. In most situations, the loop is shared by many houses. If a few of them are hogs, everyone’s performance suffers.
The OnlineNW fiber network offers the fastest speeds at prices similar or below the prices you are currently paying for slower speeds.
What Speed Should I Get?
What are my options if I cancel my cable TV?
There are several options for watching TV other than through a cable subscription. The first option is the simplest one, which is by using a HD antenna. This solution doesn’t provide a way to watch streaming videos, but if you only want to watch live TV, it’s the cheapest way to go. You can get a good HD antenna for less than $40, and there are no subscription fees. However, your channel selection depends a lot on where you live. You may want to check with surrounding neighbors to see what others in your area are able to receive.
If you want to take advantage of streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and so forth, you’ll need a way to display them on your TV. If you have a smart TV these apps are usually built in. If not, setting up your TV for streaming is still be simple and inexpensive. Some of the most popular devices are Roku, Google Chromecast, Xbox One and Apple TV.
There are more expensive, but more comprehensive, streaming services known as cable replacements. These services include Sling TV and Playstation Vue. These stream live channels in real time over the Internet. Sling TV carries multiple ESPN stations, plus Cartoon Network, TBS, Bloomberg, CNN, History and dozens of others. You can also record programs to watch later just like you would with a cable DVR box.

How reliable is OnlineNW Fiber Internet Service?
How does Fiber compare to Cable or DSL?
OnlineNW Fiber speeds are symmetric, they operate at the same speed when downloading or uploading. Cable and DSL are asymmetric, they operate at a slower speed when uploading than when downloading, usually 1/10th the speed.
The upload portion of your bandwidth is very important, especially when working from home, backing up to the iCloud, Gaming, Video Conferencing, and emailing large files. We don’t restrict that portion of your bandwidth like they do.
