Considering network technologies in use across the Far Hills area, the most widespread wired Internet technology types are Fiber (88.44 percent coverage) and DSL (88.50 percent coverage). Fiber is built on more modern Fiber-optical cables composed of dense glass strands which can deliver Internet data as light. Fiber network technology outputs better downloads and reliability, but sometimes switch over to coaxial cables in the "last mile" near a subscriber. As a result, some fiber connections might not offer true "gigabit" speeds. DSL is transmitted over phone lines by providers such as Verizon High Speed Internet that own copper phone wires. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted and bundled copper construction of telephone lines outputs lower performance compared to more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.
