What are the Benefits of Full Fibre Broadband for Businesses…

By 7th May 2021 July 19th, 2021 General News

Full Fibre broadband uses fibre optic lines from the exchange direct to your business. Compared to traditional copper based broadband connectivity, the speed you receive is not affected by the length and quality of the copper line, and as such the broadband performance id off the charts. This gives you the fastest, highest quality broadband with the least possible lag. So you and your employees can be as productive and responsive as possible.

Fibre Internet uses thin bundles of optical fibres, or strands of extremely pure glass, to transmit data using pulses of infrared laser light. This makes fibre the optimum option for weather, fire and electromagnetic resistant connectivity.

Full Fibre broadband allows HD videos to be streamed easily, large files to be uploaded and downloaded quickly and video calls to be held seamlessly without lag or buffering. What’s more impressive is, they can all be done at the same time.

Improved Reliability

Fibre is much stronger than copper cabling and is less likely to be affected by bad weather conditions, whereas copper can be damaged and can completely cut off your connection if the weather gets too bad- which can happen often in some parts of the UK.

Cloud-Capable Connectivity

Any cloud-based system needs a fibre broadband connection to work effectively and efficiently. It’s been estimated that 82% of businesses are using the cloud in some capacity. In order to use cloud-based services such as Google Drive or hosted VoIP products, without experiencing bad connections or delays, it’s essential to have business Full Fibre broadband.

Increased Productivity

Research by Sandisk estimated that slow internet could cost each employee one weeks work of productivity every year. Fibre broadband offers faster internet speeds than ADSL (copper cabling), eliminating the possibility of your connection reducing productivity levels in your business and hearing the dreading phrase ‘my internet is really slow today’. A good internet connection should improve productivity in the work place, not hinder it.

Cost Savings

Initially, the cost of moving to business fibre broadband will probably be more expensive than sticking with an ADSL connection(copper cabling), but the long-term cost benefits of switching could be substantial. Having fibre broadband cuts your risk of internet downtime, meaning you’re less likely to lose possible revenue due to an unreliable connection, and tine getting the connection fixed.

Increased Bandwidth

For businesses with greater data needs, it’s relatively easy to hit the limit on your ADSL bandwidth. Think about a bottle of wine, if you had to share it with everyone in the office, you wouldn’t get much, and it’s the same with broadband. ADSL has relatively low bandwidth whereas business fibre broadband packages have much higher bandwidth, in simple terms it’s like everyone gets their own bottle!

Better Signal Strength

The further away your business is from the local exchange the more affected and degraded the signal becomes. In comparison to fibre-optic wires, these don’t degrade as quickly over distance, meaning you’ll have a stronger, more reliable connection over fibre than you ever would over ADSL.

Speeds

Business Full Fibre broadband packages give you faster speeds, a quicker connection and enable you to run your business at a much more effective and productive rate. Check out what products and packages we have or contact our Connectivity Specialists for details on how they can help you.

Low Latency

As a result of increased reliability and increased speeds, fibre broadband also helps eliminate latency issues. Latency describes the delays that occur when you’re processing data over the internet, or also known as buffering. A service with low latency enables you to download and upload without disruption and hold better quality VoIP calls.

Resistance to Interference

Copper cables are vulnerable to hacking using methods such as tapping. Not only that, copper is sensitive to electromagnetic interference which can be caused by heavy machinery being used in close range. Fibre can resist both threats, with security threats reduced and machinery interference unable to degrade or disrupt the fibre cables.
