We can do better
According to Microsoft, 162 million Americans lack broadband internet — that is nearly half the U.S. population. With more of our everyday lives moving online, such as work and school, that could cause serious problems for large groups of people.

Microbending: how we contribute to make a more connected world
Microbending happens when small bends in the fiber axis cause attenuation and signal transmission loss. This is usually caused by fiber being forced onto cabling materials and fiber-to-fiber contacting points, or fiber being pressed onto a rough surface.
It is a major challenge for the industry, but the quality of a field-tested coating system can make a huge difference in tackling microbending performance.
