There’s an enormous range of acronym-heavy technologies available to business broadband customers – ADSL, SDSL,  and wireless to name but a few. The consequences of choosing the wrong access technology for your business could be an unnecessary bill running to tens of thousands of pounds.

So to help Newcastle businesses understand better about broadband types, we will explain each technique. This will help to get the best out of your Connection Vouchers!

Types of Broadband

ADSL

ADSL broadband uses telephone lines to provide broadband access which is up to 140 times faster than dial up and ADSL2+ can reach speeds of up to 24Mbps. It’s currently the most popular type of broadband in Australia and is available in most areas.

Naked DSL

What makes Naked DSL broadband different to ADSL and ADSL2+ is that you don’t need a separate telephone line service. Your telephone line rental is now incorporated into the Naked DSL service and it often has a VOIP option.

Cable Modem

Cable modem service enables cable operators to provide broadband using the same coaxial cables that deliver pictures and sound to your TV set. Most cable modems are external devices that have two connections: one to the cable wall outlet, the other to a computer. They provide transmission speeds of 1.5 Mbps or more.

Broadband

This high-speed Internet connection is provided through either cable or telephone companies. One of the fastest options available, broadband Internet uses multiple data channels to send large quantities of information. The term broadband is shorthand for broad bandwidth. Broadband Internet connections such as DSL and cable are considered high-bandwidth connections. Although many DSL connections can be considered broadband, not all broadband connections are DSL.

Satellite

In certain areas where broadband connection is not yet offered, a satellite Internet option may be available. Similar to wireless access, satellite connection utilizes a modem.

Mobile Broadband

Mobile broadband is a form of wireless internet technology that gives users the freedom and flexibility of broadband on the move. Built in network cards and add-ons such as USB modems and adapters provide the ability of Internet access at the office, in the car or down at your local cafe.

Wireless

Wireless broadband connects a home or business to the Internet using a radio link between the customer’s location and the service provider’s facility. Wireless broadband can be mobile or fixed.

Wireless technologies using longer-range directional equipment provide broadband service in remote or sparsely populated areas where DSL or cable modem service would be costly to provide. Speeds are generally comparable to DSL and cable modem. An external antenna is usually required.
