Fibre Optic Broadband
Fibre connections are a step up from ADSL connections, as they’re much much faster. In fact they’re “super fast”.
Fibre Optic cables are much more efficient at carrying data and that’s why the internet carried using these cables is faster. These types of cables are much less common than copper cables, but every week new fibre cables are laid.
There are two speed options available 40mbps download and 10mpbs upload or 80mbps download and 20mbps upload.
Perfect for home and small businesses, ADSL internet can handle most streaming and office internet needs.
It runs on copper cables, which have been used to carry the internet since it first came about. These cables aren’t the most efficient, but they’re the most common so they’re the cheapest option.
There are two types of ADSL broadband 20CN Max, giving speeds up to 8mbps, and 21CN ADSL2+, giving speeds of up to 24mbps.
If you have a very large office, or have a high demand for data then you will probably need to start looking at a dedicated connection.
ADSL and Fibre connections, mentioned above, are shared between many users, meaning the internet may slow down during busy times.
