What makes Fibre Internet different?

March 12, 2015

Optical FibreYou want to ensure your business has the Internet horsepower it needs to keep your team as productive as possible. Service providers tout a fibre connection as the superior choice, but you’re not sure how it differs from more traditional DSL and cable Internet services.

The backbone of the global Internet is fibre-optic cable – strands of glass or plastic that can be almost as thin as a human hair. Data on fibre literally moves at the speed of light, and the capacity of fibre is staggering.

Fibre is more reliable, durable and consistent. Compared to copper-based technologies, there is far less signal loss during transmission. This allows data to move at higher speeds and over greater distances without degradation. Nor is it subject to electrical or environmental interferences that result in noise or crosstalk.

Fibre is also more secure – information sent via fibre-optic cables is more difficult to intercept and read. Stability, uptime, and throughput – these are terms synonymous with fibre optic connections.

These are of course, the lowest latency and highest throughput connections in the world today. They are the foundation of the internet, the digital bridges between continents, and one of the most important communication technology discoveries in the world. If your company needs the best connectivity, fibre is your solution.

The fibre connection comes all the way to your premises – a single direct link with your service provider’s CO. You enjoy the ultimate combination of speed, reliability, consistency and security. Bandwidth speeds are also symmetrical, which means your upload and download speeds are the same.
