Wireless Internet provides a high speed connection from the
customer's premises to the service provider. Speeds of up to 1 Gbps can be achieved, although the actual
speed varies depending on radio protocol overhead, distance, and how much bandwidth the service provider has allocated to the customer. Setup and installation is relatively quick and straight forward.
On wireless links there is no third party
telecommunication costs. Wireless requires line of sight with Megasurf's high site.
Fibre is less expensive over time
With no high-voltage electrical transmitters needed, fibre
can help save your service provider, and you, money.
Fibre is greener
Fibre is also more durable than copper and will last longer.
The raw materials to make fibre is plentiful (since fibre is
glass it is made from sand!) whereas copper supplies are
dwindling. Say goodbye to copper mining.
Fibre is thinner
More fibres can be bundled together in the same space as a
Fibre is clearer
Fibre won’t lose the signal the way copper does. And because
light signals don’t interfere with other fibres in the same
cable, you get clearer conversations. Fibre optic cables are
safe from lightning strikes or electrical interference.
As you can see, fibre has significant benefits and due to
much lower attenuation and interference, optical fibre has large
advantages over existing copper wire in long-distance and
high-demand applications. In most countries fibre also increases
the value of your property, and since fibre is considered an
asset it also makes your community a more desirable
location. Fibre allows us to turn our homes into smart-homes and
it has the capacity to offer us triple play services. With a
fibre connection you can download a movie in a matter of
seconds, manage your home remotely and have video surveillance,
to name a few benefits.
