Fiber optics is a decades old technology which has actually been used for the main Internet "trunk" for years, but it is finally working its way into our homes.  Fiber optic service can be one of the fastes services you can get, but actual speeds depend entirely on what the ISP offers you.  It is not yet available in Maquoketa (exept for a very few locations), but is available in some of the surrouding areas.  Since it is not currently offered in this area I cannot say anything about price or speed, but fiber optics connections generally only go down when someone digs through a line.
