Fiber optics cable is a high-tech cable that contains or more optical fibers that transmits light. The optical fibers are individually coated with an exterior plastic shell to protect against moisture and interference. Just a single optical fiber has the ability to transmit more than 3 million full-duplex voice calls and 90,000 TV channels.
A single optical fiber can carry over 3,000,000 full-duplex voice calls or 90,000 TV channels. But the real beauty of fiber optics is its fast speed. Cable typically offers speeds of up to 18.2 Mbps (download), whereas fiber optics can yield speeds of 150-500 Mbps.
