How To Change Wifi Password On MyFiosGateway [Guide]


FIOS is a term for Verizon’s fiber-optic network. It stands for Fiber Optic Service and in Irish FIOS means ‘Knowledge’.

Fiber Optic system

Fiber optic system is the transmission of signals through tiny fiber-like strands of glass or plastic. These fiber optic cables have knowledge transmission and download at a quicker rate and with fewer signal noises as they’re less at risk of magnetic attraction interference.
They are created by taking glass or plastic and processing it through a machine so that it becomes an extended strand that’s slightly thicker than that of a person’s hair.

It’s through this that light-weight is transmitted in pulses, just like how electricity is transferred in pulses down copper wires.

This can be then wrapped in protection so that light-weight reflects back and forth among the glass strand and continues to maneuver forward rather than refracting out of the core and being lost.

There’s a transmitter at one end that guides the signals down the cable from the receiver bouncing around and moving forward among the cable and a receiver at the opposite end which is converting  them back into data. FIOS is far quicker, more cost-effective and is reliable.
