Getting Fast Internet? You are in the Right Place! Trust Your Computer Services To The Pros!
Broadband is a generic term used for quick Internet and can refer to Cable, ADSL2+, ADSL, Satellite, 4G, 3G, ISDN or other types of reasonably fast Internet.
The fastest Internet available to us locally in Australia is definitely fibre-optic cable, which is currently supplied through Telstra, Optus and now the Governments NBN (National Broadband Network) Service. The speeds range from 100MB/second to 1000MB/second and this is mainly available to residential users. There are business solutions available, but they are expensive, however these will become readily available and economically feasible in time.
ADSL2+ is a good second choice, as we can get a private line connection to the local exchange and provided we live reasonably close to their DSLAM, we may get up to 24 MB/sec. Interestingly some 3G wireless networks can run between 7MB/second and 21 MB/second and whilst 4G claims 65MB/sec, actual download speed is between 21MB/sec and 40 MB/second. The copper solution (ADSL based) is generally perceived as more reliable than the 3/4G wireless option, as we are connected with a physical cable and therefore my sandstone house or unit that has many concrete layers will not affect reception and speed as with wireless broadband 3G and 4G solutions.
Looking at a home or office, this is definitely the place to start and we are after really reliable equipment with a fast throughput at the modem and wirelessly, if we are extending the coverage of our Internet to other devices in the location. A plan that allows the greatest speed and a reasonable download quota with rock solid reliability is the goal. I currently have a Telstra fibre-optic cable connection.
