Fiber is composed of more modern Fiber-optical lines, which are made of densely packed glass or plastic strands which can transmit binary data as light. Fiber provides better speed and uptime, but sometimes switch over to older copper wires in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Consequently, some fiber connections might not offer "gigabit" performance.

Data Cap Issues Around Murray
Data from our researchers suggests that common ISPs in Murray place some sort of limit on data use for their home Internet connections. Data caps are controversial because consumers see them as a strategy to stop "cord cutting", while providers explain data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
