Question by Tm4409: Can i use fiber optic cable for a regular internet connection?
Hello! I’m an avid online gamer and i HAVE to have an incredible connection all the time. I am just re doing all of my internet set-up. What i was wondering was can i have a router in my room(i have one in my basement) and if i do what benefit would it be to have a router in my room. And can i run fiber optic internet cables from an optimum online connection. (not Verizon fios) Thanks again!

Unless you have a server that needs to have 1Gb/s bandwidth you do not need fiber optic internet cables, anyway switches and hubs that support that cost in excess of 1,000$ Plus you need to have 1Gb/s internet to even use that speed so yeah…
Having a router just increases stability and security, not speed.
