We don’t expect you to be an expert in internet connections, if you were, there would be no room for us. We understand the frustration that comes with getting to know the types of internet, so we want to help.
Ultimately, it comes down to your business’ location as to what internet connection will best suit you, the following breakdowns highlight each option and their pros:
Let’s start with ADSL Broadband
An Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line or ADSL is cost effective and gives a fast speed connection when in good range, aka ADSL is location dependant. ADSL allows data to be sent over copper telephone lines, meaning your phone and internet lines can be connected. When choosing this option, it’s important to remember that not all ADSL connections are the same, therefore there may be significant difference in cost and speed depending on your business’ location.
Cable Broadband is highly location depend also, as it isn’t available in many areas around Australia. Cable Broadband can offer download speeds up to 100Mbps, making it one of the fastest connections on the market. It is useful for at-home users and small businesses with an average internet involvement.
You have probably heard NBN Broadband being talked about within the media lately, that is because it’s the newest connection to roll out near Australian homes and businesses with an advertised 100Mbps download speed. It uses a combination of fibre-optic cable, existing copper lines, fixed wires and satellite to deliver the fast speed and reliable connection. NBN is a popular choice, we will have a whole blog post dedicated to NBN available soon.
Fibre Internet offers a 1000/1000Mbps speed as it uses solely fibre optic cables. Fibre is recommended for unique business centred around relying on fast upload and download speeds to increase workflow. Fibre Internet is the most costly option on the market but worth the investment where required- IT companies, we’re looking at you.
