Ahhh yes, the age old internet concern… speed. Here are several facts regarding fibre and ADSL (which is probably what you’re currently sporting).
Fibre internet is many times faster than the highest-speed offered by copper internet connections with options that range from 5Mbps to 100Mbps. That’s right, One Hundred Mbps! And what’s more, during periods of high demand for internet access – your business or household shouldn’t notice the internet slow down.
Research shows that slow internet can cause you to lose one week of productivity per year. That might seem minimal, but it’s a figure which adds up significantly.
Like a 1980s Toyato Hilux, fibre internet is significantly more dependable than its copper connectivity counterparts. Fibre is stronger than copper, un-susceptible to varying weather conditions and furthermore, fibre is resistant to human or electrical interference, unless, of course, the fibres are physically cut.
If you’re working from home, studying, or if you simply just have the whole family including your 5 children, all using the internet at the same time – it becomes very easy to hit that cap limit on your internet. Home-Connect offers you unlimited fibre internet and also speed doesn’t decrease as the demand on the network increases.
4.) Symmetric Speeds
Is there anything worse than having internet that downloads things quickly, but you dare even try to upload something and suddenly your internet slows down to the pace of snail on a Sunday afternoon drive? You can say friendly goodbye to those days with Home-Connect’s fibre internet. Fibre internet benefits from symmetric speed, which means you have access to equal upload and download speed. Which is great! If you work from home, or study – you’re probably just as likely to be uploading files than downloading them. Symmetric speeds enables users to accommodate heavy demands on downloads and uploads simultaneously.
Latency is a term used to describe delays that occur while processing data over an internet connection. Fibre internet eliminates many of the latency issues user’s experience on ADSL internet, particularly when downloading or uploading video or high-definition content.
What are the benefits to your or your business of lowering your latency issues you ask? Well, they include:
– Improved voice quality for VOIP users
– You can now move more of your apps to the cloud.
– You can download extensive files without disruption.
– You can experience better collaboration between employees.
6.) Signal Strength
With traditional ADSL internet over copper, the signal degrades as the user moves away from the switch. When it comes to fibre internet, signal strength does not degrade as quickly over distance. If you abide in a fairly large house, or your offices are big, you will benefit from better signal strength throughout your home or office with our fibre internet.
