Fibre

What is Fibre and Why you need it?

In today’s advanced day and age, it is almost impossible to go a day without needing an Internet connection. Staying connected is important for various reasons. Not only do we need a steady connection in order to stay in touch with family during the day, but we also need a connection to do basic research, watch television, do homework, skype, etc. Fibre is your best option for all of this.

There are various different kinds of Internet connection technologies available to us today. One of the oldest internet technologies is dial-up. Do you remember when you had to wait for your connection to boot, which would take what felt like hours? Everything we tried to do took hours. Luckily, we don’t live in that age anymore. Today, we can get ADSL, LTE, Wireless and Fibre. ADSL is the slowest option available today. ADSL, or Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, is a type of connection that enables data transmission over copper telephone lines. Wireless Internet / connectivity is the next best solution. It is faster than ADSL, but still not as fast as LTE or Fibre. LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and is a 4G Wireless Broadband standard. This is the connection that your phone uses. LTE is fast and reliable, but not as much as Fibre. LTE can be limited to the coverage in your area. Most services providers offer capped packages, therefore making it an expensive solution.

Fibre is the latest advancement in broadband technology. Fibre optics is a flexible, transparent Fibre made by drawing glass to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. Fibre Internet works by sending data in a beam of light down a glass pipe; this is the transferring of data. That is why it is the fastest Internet solution today; it literally transmits and / or transfers data at the speed of light. It is the most sought-after Internet solution technology today. Due to its speed and reliability, it has become increasingly popular over the last few years.

Home Fibre Internet lines can run at speeds of between 10Mbps and 200Mbps. LTE can only reach speeds of 50Mbps. It is by far the fastest option available, and this is largely due to the optic technology used.

Fibre optic broadband is a super-fast that uses cables to transfer data. It is the best option if you want a super-fast and reliable Internet connection to your home or your business. Here are a few reasons why you need Fibre Optic broadband:

  • It is super fast. Due to the Fibre Optic technology that is used in the cables, data is transferred by the use of light and glass. Line speeds available in Fibre deals range between 10Mbps and 1000Mbps.
  • It is reliable. Other Internet connection cables, like copper, are affected by bad weather, degradation, theft, other signals and frequencies. Optic cables are not affected by any of this, meaning your connection will be more reliable and steady.
  • Uncapped Internet. Packages often offer uncapped Internet connection deals. Uncapped means that you cannot run out of data, so your connection will not be interrupted or stopped.
