Fibre internet can increase the output of ones business in terms of productivity and ease of communication.

Fibre internet

What is fibre Internet?

Fibre internet commonly referred to as fiber optic internet or simply “fiber optics”, is a broadband connection that can achieve speeds of up to 940 megabits per second (Mbps), with little delay. This technology uses fiber optic cables, which amazingly can transmit data at speeds of 70% of the speed of light. In addition, fiber optic cables are not as susceptible to extreme weather conditions as other traditional cable types, which helps minimize outages. They are also highly resistant to electrical interference.

How is fibre internet different from other internet?

The main difference is that fibre optic cables do not use electricity like other types of internet connections. They use light that is transmitted through the fibre optic core.

Internet technologies have evolved dramatically over time. Below is a brief overview of the main types of connectins still in use and how they work:

  • Dial-up internet

Dial-up, which is far less common today than it was 20 years ago, uses existing telephone lines, which are usually made of copper. Dial-up uses the audible frequency of the landline, so you hear a series of beeps and noises when the connection is made. Also, you cannot make a phone call and access the internet at the same time, as they share the same line.

The average speed of dial-up connections is 56 Kbps (which is about 0.05 Mbps) for downloading and uploading.

  • DSL

The DSL Internet (Digital Subscriber Line) also uses telephone lines for data transmission. Unlike the dial-up connection, however, DSL uses non-audible frequencies, so it doesn’t compete with your telephone service.

Average speeds for DSL range from 1 to 100 Mbit/s for downloading and up to 20 Mbit/s for uploading.

The DSL Internet (Digital Subscriber Line) also uses telephone lines for data transmission. Unlike the dial-up connection, however, DSL uses non-audible frequencies, so it doesn’t compete with your telephone service.

  • Cable Internet

Cable internet uses the same line (or at least the same type of line) that your cable connection TV uses, the so-called “coaxial cable”.

Cable internet speeds can vary widely, on average up to 940 Mbit/s for downloading and up to 50 Mbit/s for uploading.

Four ways fibre internet affect your business

Fibre internet services are absolutely essential for a business or enterprise, especially for those using data storage or cloud. Certain factors such as bandwidth, security, speed, reliability, signal strength and cloud access are the main advantages of fibre internet that make it so popular.

  • Security

Unlike wireless connections or copper lines, which can be tapped, your data is safe with fibre optic cable. It does not emit signals and is almost impossible to eavesdrop on. If the cable is tapped, it is very easy to monitor as the cable emits light, causing the entire system to fail. If an attempt is made to breach the physical security of your fibre network, it will be immediately apparent. Fibre networks also allow you to house all your electronics and hardware in one central location, rather than having cabinets of equipment all over the building.

  • Cost

The cost of fibre optic cables, components and equipment has steadily declined. Although fibre optic cables are more expensive than copper cables in the short term, they can be more cost effective in the long term. Fibre optic cables typically require less maintenance, have less downtime and require less network hardware. In addition, advances in on-site connection technology have reduced the cost of fibre installation.

  • Higher Reliability

It’s hard to imagine a business not relying on the most reliable internet service possible these days. Fortunately, the way fibre optic lines and switches work means that uptime is almost constant.

  • Minimal Latency

Fibre internet does indeed give you far faster cloud access than any other type of connection. Your upload and download speeds are naturally much faster thanks to the symmetrical speeds of fibre, but you also have less to worry about in terms of latency, and lower latency over fibre means that packets of information are sent over the network much faster and more reliably.

Using bandwidth-hogging tools is far smoother when you maximise your data transfer and access the cloud with world-class connectivity.

Is fibre internet faster?

High-speed internet connections transmit data at different speeds. Fibre connections aren’t only faster, but are also considered more reliable and are an excellent choice for telecommuters, gamers, multi-user households and businesses.

CityFibre Service can deliver symmetrical download/upload speeds of up to 940 megabits per second (Mbps) over a wired connection to your router.

When you think about speed, you can’t ignore the impact of WiFi. The speed you experience on a daily basis can be limited by the use of wireless technology, which tends to lose signal strength (meaning lower bandwidth) compared to the wired connection entering your router.

Benefit of fibre internet for business

Fibre optic internet is a good choice for high-bandwidth households where multiple users want to stream videos, play online games, back up data or send and receive large files simultaneously, especially over long distances.

A home with fibre can provide an exceptional experience for all devices and internet-connected systems, from home security to smart thermostats, ovens, refrigerators and other appliances.

With faster speeds, there’s also less buffering when streaming on demand. “Buffering” refers to the loading time that occurs when a video is paused and needs to be caught up. For example, with Cityfibre internet, you can download a full-length 4K or HD movie in seconds.

Fibre is ideal for multiple users to connect multiple devices at the same time. CityFibre limited you can:

  • Upload and download files quickly
  • Enjoy smooth online gaming and video chats with friends and family
  • Back up your entire hard drive to the cloud, including large photos and videos, in minutes instead of hours
  • Download a 2-hour movie from HD in seconds, compared to waiting 30 minutes or more on a traditional 20 Mbps Internet service.

How does fibre internet work?

Fibre optic internet is a complex technology that allows information to be transmitted in the form of light rather than electricity. This advanced technology consists of many parts, but two key components are optical fibres and the so-called “last mile” of the fibre optic network.

  • Optical fibres

Optical fibres are tiny – they are about 125 micrometres in diameter, making them slightly larger than a human hair. Many of these fibres are bundled into cables (not to be confused with coaxial cables, which are made of copper). The optical fibres pass laser or LED light pulses through the cable and transmit information in “binary” form, similar to the 0 and 1 in electronics.
