Last Mile Fibre Connectivity
The physical connection from your business premises to our network is commonly called the Last Mile.
Fibre is a favourite as a medium for the last mile because this is the connection you, as a business, rely on the most. It is usually the Last Mile which is affected by severe weather, interference and theft. Fibre is robust and can withstand the elements. Fibre is made of glass strands, unlike its legacy competitor ADSL which is comprised of Copper, which is why it is invulnerable to theft. Glass is an excellent conductor of light, which is why Fibre is capable of such incredible speeds. Your data is literally transmitted at the speed of light. Glass is also a poor conductor of electricity, which is why Fibre does not suffer from electromagnetic interference.
A single glass Fibre strand is able to transmit a large amount of data as well. Each Fibre pipe you see being laid in the ground already has hundreds of strands in it. This means that there is a vast amount of available capacity in the Fibre which already physically exists, making remote upgrades easier and almost instant. If the existing Fibre reaches full capacity, the pipes are built in such a way, that more strands can be added, without having to dig up the roads again. This is the real beauty of Fibre, it is Future-ready. Businesses won’t have to provision exorbitant amounts of money for upgrades in the future. Your initial costs to connect Fibre to your business will pretty much be the most expensive part of the rest of your Fibre-life.
Future proof Fibre.
Fibre capabilities continue to improve, without replacement technology on the horizon. Current research is promising Fibre which is able to transmit data at 1 Terabyte per second! This is why we refer to Fibre as future-proof.
