Bandwidth use adds up fast!
The sheet below can give you a rough idea of what your household broadband bandwidth needs may be.

Broadband Internet (FCC defined as 25mbps download/3mbps upload) is ciritcal for today's digital economy, educational resources, public safety, and more.

Fiber-optic broadband infrastructure can support virtually unlimited amounts of bandwidth use and has very little signal degradation over long distances.
For example. copper wire loses about 94% of its bandwidth capacity over 100 meters, where fiber-optic line only loses about 3% over the same distance.
Broadband can also be delivered wirelessly. Wireless can be a good solution when wireline infrastructure is cost-prohibitive due to difficult geography or low building density. However, wireless infrastructure can be impacted by weather, trees, and other environmental factors.
