Fioptics is ultra-fast,
future-proof fiber internet.

And we’re making it happen today.

If you want great, choose fiber.
If you want awesome, choose Fioptics.

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. Hawaii's fastest upload speeds. Upload speeds are what let you video chat without freezing. Fioptics upload speeds are up to seven times faster than the cable company’s.
  3. Resistance 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 ability to carry long distances. That translates into better performance.

Fioptics offers all those advantages, plus another huge one:

Fioptics is Hawaii’s only 100% fiber internet. Only Hawaiian Telcom brings the fiber into 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 Fioptics 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 Fioptics Internet 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 Fioptics 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 Fioptics Internet cannot be interrupted as easily as other types of Internet connectivity, it provides the most reliable and consistent service
