Fiber optics are long thin strands of pure glass about the diameter of a human hair.

Fiber optics carry voice, video and data signals at speeds as much as 20 times faster than copper cables. Fiber optic cables are lighter in weight, more flexible and less vulnerable to glitches or interference. Using laser generated pulses of light, fiber provides clearer phone conversations and TV signals along with quicker Internet transmissions. Plus voice and data transmissions over fiber are more secure than when they are sent over other connections.

Farmers Mutual Telephone Company and Federated Telephone Cooperative members are owners of the cooperative and receive capital credit dividends based on their patronage with their cooperative. All members have a 100% dedicated fiber connection all the way to their home or office. This means your telephone conversations are on a private connection and your Internet service isn't shared with your neighbors.
