5G Wiring Installed Below Ground Has Venetians Curious
By Nick Antonicello
For the last several weeks VERIZON has been installing underground fiber optic tubing with a 5G upgrade on Washington Blvd west of Lincoln and just blocks from the beach.
Fiber optic internet is a data connection carried by a cable filled with thin glass or plastic fibers. Data travels through them as beams of light pulsed in a pattern. Fiber optic internet speeds are about 20 times faster than regular cable at 1 Gbps.
The work will continue Monday thru Friday from 9AM to 3PM for at least through the end of January.
