Fibre Broadband is…

Fibre broadband is an incredibly fast type of broadband. While the majority of broadband connections in Ireland use mobile networks or telephone lines, fibre broadband uses fibre optic cables to carry data at extremely high speeds.  A fibre optic cable is thinner than a human hair!

Benefits of Fibre Broadband:

The speeds offered by Fibre Broadband open up a whole new range of applications and software that can benefit your business.

Fibre Broadband Improves Communication Capabilities:

Video conference platforms require a lot of data but fibre broadband can make business communications between colleagues and clients easier and faster than ever. The speeds provided by Fibre Broadband are unequalled and allow businesses to use bandwidth intensive applications such as video conferencing a lot more effectively. This in turn can reduce the need for international travel, reduce costs whilst providing a sound platform for building and sustaining business partnerships around the world.

Improve Efficiency, Productivity and Reliability with Fibre Broadband:

As we all know, time is money. Faster upload, download and transfer times as well as easier document sharing means companies become more efficient.  Company productivity also improves as a large number of users can simultaneously use the internet with little to no effect on the overall performance of the broadband connection. This contrasts very favourably with standard ADSL broadband which happens to be Ireland’s most commonly used business broadband connection type.

Cost-Savings achieved from Fibre Broadband:

As well as reducing travel costs and improving efficiency and productivity for businesses, the speed and reliability of fibre broadband allow a company to swap expensive data storage hardware for the cloud. This means companies can make impressive savings by completely removing the capital costs of buying and maintaining their data hardware.

* Ping is the reaction time of your internet connection–how fast you get a response after you’ve sent out a request. A fast ping means a more responsive connection, especially in applications where timing is everything (like video games). Ping is measured in milliseconds (ms).

** Latency is the delay from input into a system to desired outcome i.e. wasted time.
