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.

ADSL Broadband

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.

I thought you were Amelix Telecom, why are you selling BT and Talk Talk products?
We don’t want to bore you with a long history lesson but in 1998 the government deregulated the telecoms industry at this point BT were split in to two separate companies known today as BT retail (Who currently send you a bill) and Openreach (Who maintain all the lines on the network for BT and also act as a wholesaler). What this means is that we can buy BT and Talk Talk products and then sell them to you at a cheaper rate than going to BT or Talk Talk directly. We have less overheads than BT or Talk Talk and also buy in bulk which means we don’t need to charge as much as they do. So you get the exact same product that BT or Talk Talk could offer you, but at a much cheaper price.
What is FTTC/FTTP?
FTTC stands for Fibre to the Cabinet. It’s a type of broadband carried the majority of the way to your address by fibre optic cables and then a small distance VIA the old fashioned copper cables. Why does it make a difference? Well, fibre cables carry data faster and more reliably than copper, but they’re more expensive to lay and maintain. FTTP stands for Fibre to the Premises. The whole distance from the data centre to your address is covered with fibre optic cables. It’s incredibly fast because there are no copper cables to slow down the journey.
What is ADSL?
ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. In simple terms, ADSL is a type of broadband provided over copper cables used to carry Line Rental. It’s the cheapest, most common type of broadband but also the slowest.
What is LLU?
LLU stands for Local Loop Unbundling. It means that a provider other than BT can sell internet connections using some of the infrastructure owned by BT. They put their own software in the telephone exchange and rent line space from BT. This is what Talk Talk does for it’s ADSL products.
Why can I only get some types of internet at my address?
The type of internet you can receive depends on what type of cables are surrounding your address. If you’re in an urban area with lots of businesses around you, the chances are Open Reach have dug up the pavement to lay fibre cables, as there will be a high demand of people willing to pay for it. However, if you’re in a rural area the chances of fibre being laid in your area is much lower. However, fibre is being laid all the time, and we can see planned works surrounding an address. Give us a call and we can find out for you.
