YOUR DATA IS HOPPING! JITTER AND LATENCY ARE KILLING YOUR INTERNET EXPERIENCE. VoIP PHONE CALLS SOUND THIN OR DROP. YOUR DATA IS SUBJECT TO HACK WITH EVERY HOP! WE DON'T HOP!
On your computer or device, how does your internet send you on your destination? Is it direct to Facebook.com or Whitehouse.gov? Or does your journey take you on a circuitous route? Should you travel to Chicago, you would drive directly there. You would not go by way of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, New York, London and a dozen other places on your way to Chicago. But, your present carrier does just that. You cannot teach an old dog new tricks!
North Texas Fiber would have taken you to Chicago. No other stops, just Chicago. Each time you "hop" to another location on way to your destination, your data must bounce through another router. While routers are usually quick, each builds "latency." Multiple routers are like multiple "stop signs" on your path. Stop internet hopping. The more you hop, the more latency, the worse the quality of the trip. If that path is on your phone system's VoIP system, that call will not be clear, or might even drop. Your carrier might hop 25 to 35 times on the way to the simplest and most traveled sites. We go direct, one-hopping to the almost 300 most visited sites you travel.
*A "hop" is the path a packet travels from a router to then next, to the next as it runs through a carrier's network on its way to your selected site.
If you open your Command Prompt, you can execute a trace route to an IP address of your chosen destination. You will see hops "live," and get a true hop count. Your typical network might be as many as 30+. North Texas Fiber "hotwires" you directly where you are going. No Latency, no Jitter.
**Your current Internet connection takes 20 to 30 hops to the most visited sites you use daily. Every hop passes through another router. The less hops, the less latency. Each router slows your route and builds network problems. You need your internet backbone to have the least amount of hops.
***Are your phone calls dropping? Is Office365 a problem? Are your data backups slow or "timing out" and failing?
