Fiber is the future.

And we’re making it happen today.

If you want great, choose Fiber.
If you want awesome, choose us.

How do we love Fiber? Let us count the ways.

  1. More download bandwidth. Like, exponentially more. A fiber-optic cable has about 10,000 times more bandwidth than a traditional copper cable.
  2. Faster upload speeds. Upload speeds are what let you video chat without freezing. Our upload speeds are up to seven times faster than the cable company’s.
  3. Resistant to interference. Unlike copper, Fiber doesn’t conduct electricity. So it’s immune to interference from radio signals, cell towers, power lines, etc.
  4. Better at carrying data long distances. That translates into better performance.

Hawaiian Telcom Fiber offers all those advantages, plus one more huge one:

Hawaiian Telcom is the only true provider of fiber Internet straight to your home.

We call it “Fiber over the last mile,” and it means a faster and more reliable way to access the Internet.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Answers to the questions you want to know.

Is Fiber really faster than Cable?

Fiber-optic Internet services are faster compared to the cable network with a minimum download and upload speed of 300 Mbps. Many people can access the Fiber network at the same time without affecting the overall performance. This makes it ideal for high demand use that needs to stay constant, even during peak periods.

Is Fiber more reliable than Cable?

Fiber-optic Internet access does not experience interruptions from electricity disruptions. You’ll still be able to access your fiber-optic network without electricity because the cables are made of glass and do not conduct electricity. This protects the cables from fluctuating power voltages and risk of fires. Since the Fiber network cannot be interrupted as easily as other types of Internet connectivity, it provides the most reliable and consistent service
