Residential Data Fiber
When it comes to high-speed internet, you haven’t seen anything yet. Fiber is the newest, fastest internet technology, outpacing DSL by the speed of light. Literally. The Fiber optic cables used to transmit the data for fiber internet can deliver speeds up to 1 Gbps or 1000 Mbps. The average DSL internet taps out around 6 Mbps. Not only is fiber internet faster, it’s more durable, reliable, and creates an overall better experience for the user.
We are excited to help promote fiber as your Utah internet service provider! With a fiber residential internet connection from Beehive Broadband, you can look forward to experiencing speeds up to 100x faster than most internet providers in Utah. Even better, there won’t be the slowdown that often occurs with shared internet connections. Beehive Broadband also doesn’t believe in data caps, so you can enjoy better streaming quality, and faster downloading speeds in your home. Upload pictures and videos in a flash. Download music and files nearly instantaneously. Stream video or game online with no buffering or lag time.
Couple our crystal clear Digital Voice service and the ultimate in television entertainment, BEEtv, with your fiber service and you have a winning combo that the whole family will love!
We’re constantly expanding our network to provide internet to more homes and businesses in the Western Utah and Eastern Nevada regions. Check to see if Beehive Broadband fiber is available in your area.
Hybrid Fiber Over Coaxial
Our HFOC (Hybrid Fiber Over Coaxial) network leverages fiber to provide high-speed data closer to each customer, reducing the noise and other common problems inherent in longer cable runs. This offers higher speed cable data connections to customer modems, comparable to our low- and mid-tier fiber packages.
HFOC works through combining fiber optic and coaxial cables to carry the broadband data. Beehive installs the fiber optic cable to the cable head-end and to the serving nodes that are near the users. The nodes are where the coaxial cables reach to each resident’s home or business on the network. It’s a good alternative to completely replacing existing coaxial cables with new fiber optic ones.
The lookup tool can help you see if Beehive Broadband provides HFOC at your address.
Think high-speed internet is out of reach because of where you live? Think again.
Beehive Broadband provides high-speed DSL internet connections in rural communities within Western Utah and Eastern Nevada. Ditch dial-up for faster, smoother DSL broadband with speeds up to 20Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up. All you need is a phone landline for Beehive to install DSL internet.

*In areas where DSL is available, a landline home phone is also required in order to receive a high-speed DSL connection
The term data cap is frequently used when talking about internet services. To help you understand exactly what Beehive Broadband means when we say we have no data caps here’s a breakdown of what data caps are referring to. Data caps limit the amount of data you can use, either over a period of time — like a monthly data cap — or by limiting your bandwidth, which affects your internet speed. On occasion companies will limit both.
Each and every device connected to your internet service — computers, smartphones, TVs, game consoles, smart home devices like thermostats, refrigerators, doorbells and more — uses data and takes up a portion of your bandwidth. If an internet service provider is placing monthly caps or slowing your data down, it affects how well your devices work.
With all of Beehive Broadband’s internet service options (Fiber, HFOC, and DSL), there are no data caps. You will never be charged for overages and you won’t be arbitrarily slowed down. You’ll never be restricted in how or when you can use your internet connection, giving you the freedom to do what you want online. We value the opportunity to be your Utah internet providers and strive to make sure you get high-speed service at unbeatable value!
What are Fiber Optics?
Fiber optics are thin strands of very pure glass about the diameter of a human hair. They are arranged in bundles called fiber optic cables. They use light instead of electricity to carry a signal.
What is Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH)?
Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is the installation and use of fiber optical cable directly to your home (or business).
Why is FTTH important to me?
Fiber technology is unique because it can carry virtually unlimited amounts of information over extreme distances. There is no known upper limit. Copper wire data rates are limited to a very miniscule fraction of what fiber can do and even then only for a few thousand yards; after which the data rate dramatically slows and eventually ceases to function as you extend the distance.
Connecting homes with fiber optic cables instead of copper and coaxial cables enables homes to receive the full spectrum of the world of data–information, communication and entertainment without limits.
What are the advantages of a dedicated fiber connection?
Greater Capacity: Today’s homeowners are using technologies that require more and more bandwidth. Fiber optics is the only medium that can supply the current and continually growing bandwidth demand.
Greater Reliability: Because fiber is made of glass, it is not affected by certain weather conditions, such as lightning. It does not degrade due to weathering, and because the network is underground, it is immune to storms, fires and pole damage.
Cost Effective: Extreme speed allows a more cost-effective method to transmit large amounts of data to everyone’s homes. This eliminates delay for file transfer, web pages to load, videos to stream. It provides what you need when you need it, without the expense of waiting.
Future-Proof: Once installed, upgrades, if ever needed, are only involving the electronics at the end and not replacing the cable itself. That’s why fiber networks are said to be “future-proof.”
This means more bandwidth than ever before, phone service with more features and benefits than ever before, and television with better picture quality. TV images are not compressed as they are with satellite and cable providers, so the quality is as high as the broadcasters choose to deliver. Moreover, there are no antennas that will collect snow and cause outages. Nothing to visually clutter your rooftop, no overhead wires across your property.
Will getting a dedicated fiber connection destroy my yard?
We will make all efforts to minimize any disturbances of your property. By using directional boring methods we keep most of the construction totally underground without disturbing the surface. Some surface disturbance will be needed to bring the cable out of the ground. We don’t stop any necessary restoration until you are happy. Our goal is to leave your yard and landscaping equal to or better than before we came.
Will installing fiber make my home more valuable?
Absolutely. A dedicated fiber connection is considered an upgrade to the property. In some cases, it is the most valued utility connection. Market Researchers at the Fiber-to-the-Home Council estimated that a fiber connection can add up to $5,000 to your home value.
Why do I need a battery in my home?
Unlike old copper wire-based technology, the fiber network does not power itself. The only signal in the fiber cable from the central office to your home is light. So, the electronics need a battery to keep them alive during power outages.
How long will the battery last if the power goes out in my home?
Under continous use, the battery will last 8 hours or longer. Once the power is back on it will recharge itself.
Can I choose not to have a battery?
The optical device on the outisde of your home is connected to a power supply we put inside your home. That power supply has the battery built-in. It’s not an optional part.
Your service isn't currently available in my area. When will it be available?
We are constantly working on expanding our network. In order for us to bring our service to an area, we require a 40% take rate. This means that 40% of the residents in that particular neighborhood must express interest in obtaining our broadband service. There is no pre-payment or contact required, simply add your address to our map. Once we reach that 40% threshold, the neighborhood becomes an actionable project and we may begin the planning and permitting phase.
What Internet Speed Do I Need?
Obviously, the faster your internet is the better. But do you actually need the best high-speed internet package available, or will something a little bit less expensive still work fine? Check out the Beehive Broadband internet speed testing tool and see how your current internet speed meets your needs.
What is Broadband Internet?
Broadband really means an internet connection that is continuously active and faster than dial-up. Most internet connections today are broadband internet.
What is the Difference Between Wifi and Internet?
Internet, which is provided through wires and cable connections, allows for the sharing of information online. Wifi is the means of tapping into the internet without a wired connection. In short, Wifi is a local wireless network that uses a router to pass information between your Wifi-enabled device and the actual internet connection.
