Comparison Of Broadband And Fiber Connectivity

Posted by SEOEngineer on June 21st, 2022

You may have seen the phrases "fibre" and "broadband" used interchangeably and puzzled why pricing seemed to differ so much between them. As a commercial Internet Repair Service Provider, Telcofast connects all types of businesses and can explain the various broadband and fibre technologies you may encounter, as well as the appropriate applications for each.


To transfer data, a broadband connection, whether, ADSL, FTTC Phone Line Installation, or FTTP, utilize some common infrastructure. Simply put, when you download a file, the data travels down a pipe alongside numerous other files destined for different users. This means that even if your connection is capable of downloading at 80Mbps, you may not be able to do so, or only a few times.


With a fibre optic leased line, the fibre pipeline is exclusive to your company, and your traveling data is not shared with anybody else's. That means it arrives faster and more securely; the speed you pay for is the speed you get. So, here are the 5 major differences btw broadband and fibre connectivity.


Firstly, "Fibre" refers to fibre optic cable, which can transfer data at the speed of light — a significant improvement over the copper connections used in previous internet connectivity.


Secondly, service level agreements. If you are a Beaming subscriber, any broadband problem should be resolved within two working days. When you choose a fibre leased line, you almost always get 24x7x365 uptime guaranteed, and if there is a problem, the target fix time is within 5 hours of the issue being notified.


Thirdly, reliability. This varies depending on the provider, but in general, broadband is fairly reliable. It is, however, less dependable than a Fibre Optic Installation Adelaide due to shared infrastructure and more points of failure.


Fourthly, security. Because of shared infrastructure and more potential points of access, broadband isn't as secure as a fibre leased line, which will normally come with monitoring that can detect and deflect threats.


And lastly, the time required for installation. Most businesses in Australia will already have ADSL or FTTC internet infrastructure in place, so you can be up and running in a matter of days. When it comes to FTTP, you are limited by whether providers have already established infrastructure, so you may have to wait a while before FTTP reaches you.
