Types of Connectivity

There are many types of internet connections available, and not every provider calls the same connection the same name. This can make it difficult to understand which type is right for you! 

We can help you navigate the sea of choice and find the right connectivity for your business. 

Fibre

The fastest and most reliable internet connectivity option. Runs on fibre technology, transmitting signals in pulses of modulated light. This gives it higher bandwidth than any other connectivity type as it isn't bound by the physical limitations of electricity conducting through metal. You can get speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second.

NBN

Rolled out by the Australian Government, the NBN runs on copper technology and can often offer a fast connection. However, there are differences between residential and commercial NBN, so make sure you check what you're signing up to. Residential connection speeds can fluctuate greatly depending on how many people are using it in your area.

Wireless

In theory, satellite powered wireless can give you the same speeds as fibre however, it may not be as reliable. Wireless internet is subject to the elements, meaning during a storm you may experience drop outs. It is a great redundancy option to have alongside a wired internet connection.

ADSL

Did you know ADSL is being phased out? You can read about it in our blog.
ADSL runs on copper lines, the same lines as telephone connections. It is a reliable option however, with ADSL the speed you experience will always fluctuate, depending on how many people in your area are using the internet via ADSL at the same time.
