WHAT IS A FIBER LIT BUILDING?

Fiber Lit Buildings or FLBs is wired real estate that is capable of providing high-speed internet connectivity. These buildings can do this via fiber optic cable laid within the building connecting it directly to nearby central offices. Large telecom companies like AT&T see the value in this style of real estate and work to acquire many of these fiber-enhanced commercial buildings.

Why Is a Fiber Lit Building Essential to Business?

Businesses can operate much more efficiently with higher speeds and larger bandwidth, which ultimately creates more revenue.

Another advantage of setting up your business in a fiber lit building is that you can easily change your current Internet Service Provider. FLBs generally have multiple service providers offering a range of high-speed services and bandwidth to the building’s tenants. This means that demand is low, and the service pricing will often be competitive.

Fiber optic cables can support much higher Ethernet connections and with multiplexing of wavelength, numerous gigabit services can be put together into a single optical fiber. If a business were to be operating in a non-lit building, then it would not be able to access this fast Ethernet and traditional broadband networking may be the only option.fiber lit building
