How Do Fiber-Optics Work?

It's Fast, Really Fast - Limited by the electronics we connect to the ends. The current record is 15.5 Terabits per second over a distance of 7,000 km. That’s the equivalent of 10.3 million 1.5Mbps T1 Connections.

It's Secure - It’s far easier to tap into copper or electrical wiring than it is to tap into fiber-optic wiring in a surreptitious manner. Also, the financial investment of tapping into fiber is far greater than tapping into copper.

It Isn’t Affected by Weather - Because fiber cables carry light instead of electricity it's not disturbed by changes in temperature, rain, or virtually any other environmental condition. That being said, it is not immune to everything like a tree limb, a wayward automobile, or a backhoe.

Why choose ACD?

ACD also provides 1000Mbps Internet to homes and businesses with Active Ethernet over fiber. Active Ethernet is faster and much more reliable than our competitors antiquated cable TV and DSL networks, and less robust fiber GPON networks. Using Active Ethernet ACD services have tremendously increased Internet download and upload speeds to 1,000 Mbps.

“We really look forward to doing business with Sturgis and optimizing fiber and safe and reliable networks in their area to help grow their businesses.” said ACD’s CEO Kevin Schoen.
