Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, or the more palatable ADSL, is a type of business broadband that uses copper wires in your telephone line to provide a high-quality, reliable internet connection. As it is provided by Openreach, who own most of the UK’s landline infrastructure, ADSL broadband is the most common type of internet connection in the UK. If your business is located far away from your telephone exchange or if your cable is worn, speeds tend to drop so if you rely on a fast business broadband connection, another option may work best for you.
The newest and fastest business broadband technology available to date, Fibre Optic Broadband uses plastic or glass cables to allow for super-fast data transfer that’s superior to ADSL. There are two different types: FTTC and FTTP. FTTC works by connecting the fibre ready street cabinet to your business’ premises via copper wire and you can expect to receive download speeds of up to 76Mbps. FFTP on the other hand connects your business directly to the internet service provider using a fibre optic cable and as a result, it boasts download speeds of up to 330Mbps. If you’re not sure which option is right for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the experienced team at Town & Country.
Unlike other options, this type of business broadband doesn’t operate over shared lines but instead provides your business with its very own dedicated line to deliver data and broadband directly. This means that your business, and only your business, will be using your connection which gives you super reliable data connectivity in areas that otherwise suffer from poor signal or speeds. So, if your business broadband needs to provide reliable and speedy internet connectivity on a daily basis, a leased line arranged by Town & Country could be your perfect solution.
