What equipment is recommended to maximize 1 Gbps service?

1 Gbps internet service is so fast that older computers may not be able to process all of the available data as fast as Fioptics transmits it – leading to slower speeds. In order to take full advantage of 1 Gbps speeds, you’ll need a computer, laptop, or portable device that supports a gigabit (1Gbps 1000BaseT network interface card). As a reminder, a wired connection from your device (computer) to your gateway will provide faster speeds than a wireless connection.

The good news is that most new computers and laptops already support gigabits speeds! If you’re not sure whether your computer or laptop supports these speeds, consult your computer documentation and look for the following terms:

  • 1000BaseTx
  • 1000Mbps
  • 1Gbp
  • 1 Gig 
  • GigE
