Why is fiber preferred to copper or coaxial cable?

Optical fiber is unique because it can carry a high-bandwidth signal for an enormous distance. The longer the distance the signal travels on copper or coaxial cable, the lower the bandwidth. Fiber networks can also be upgraded by changing the electronics or using different lasers that increase the bandwidth without changing the fiber itself. That’s why fiber networks are said to be “future proof.”
