Infographic titled "History of Fiber"

You may already know what Socket Fiber is, but may not understand exactly how it works.

Basically, it's all about feeding data through tiny pieces of glass near the speed of light. But who came up with this idea, and how?

Earlier this month, Socketeers visited Mizzou's Student Center as part of the Off-Campus Housing Fair!

In addition to handing out t-shirts, pens, candy, and raffling off a Chromebook, we also answered questions about Internet service and discussed things for first-time customers to look out for (like fine print and data caps).
