High-speed internet with fiber optics

Fiber makes it possible: super-fast and stable internet for binge-watchers, home office heroes, gaming nerds and everyone who enjoys a speedy online experience.

Fiber optics – what is it and how does it work?

With fiber optic cables, data races through the network at the speed of light. Conventional telephone cables made of copper, on the other hand, transmit the data electronically. Fiber optic connections for private households reach up to 1 Gbit/s in Germany, with the latest connections reaching more than 2 Gbit/s – for both upload and download speeds! 

With a real fiber optic connection, you not only browse and stream faster, you also have stable internet and maximum bandwidth. The perfect ping also ensures stress-free gaming.

AON or GPON – what's that?

No, they're not new electricity suppliers, but two different fiber optic technologies: With an Active Optical Network (AON), you have your "own line" to the network operator and can enjoy full bandwidth.

With a Gigabit-capable Passive Network (GPON), you share a line with your neighbors – but can still stream and browse at high speeds. Find out more in this guide.

With the FRITZ!Box 5530 Fiber, you don't have to choose. The enclosed SFP module means it can support both AON and GPON!
