Benefits of Fiber for Virtual Calls

In recent years, more aspects of people’s professional lives have moved online due to the pandemic. This telework trend is continuing as people and businesses have noticed many positive results of remote working like improved mental health and increased productivity. With 44 percent of Americans working from home (1), the demand for powerful internet in both urban and rural communities has also increased. Whether you’re a full-time work-from-homer or a hybrid employee, you’re going to need fast, reliable internet out there to keep up with your workload and virtual meetings.

If you are a work-from-homer, you are probably very familiar with virtual calls. For many companies, videoconferencing is a vital tool for employee training, marketing, and sales. Apps like Zoom, Skype, and Teams allow you to connect online for video conference meetings, webinars, and live chat. What else do these apps have in common? The need for quality internet connection from WAVE Rural Connect.

All internet is not created equally. Fiber internet is vastly different from traditional copper phone lines, cable, or fixed wireless technology. Fiber enables symmetrical upload and download speeds, so your computer can send data as quickly as it receives it. This means your team can have lag-free, productive online meetings because everyone will be able to see and hear each other in real-time. Fiber allows you to chat with colleagues and clients via HD video conference with extreme clarity.

Furthermore, fiber provides users with an exclusive connection which means your network will have less disruption and more security. Fiber internet is faster, more reliable, and more secure, making it the best choice for connecting you to your important meetings. That’s why WAVE Rural Connect provides an internet connection that will keep up with videoconferences all day long. Get connected at waveruralconnect.com!
