Fiber optic in the Netherlands
More and more households in the Netherlands are connected to the fiber optic network, which realizes a much faster internet connection. The technology transmits the data within the fiber optic cable in the form of short infrared light pulses. In addition, fiber optic technology is highly resistant to electrical and magnetic disturbances and offers symmetrical downstream and upstream speeds. With fiber optic technology upload and download speeds of more than 1 gigabit per second are already possible, and speeds of a few gigabits per second are also possible.
The FRITZ! Box 5530 is already available from various providers and will soon be available from retailers.
