Obviously, it is advisable to turn to a professional offer to benefit from the best guarantees and the best speed. However, the level of services is different depending on the supplier and the characteristics can be very different.
ADSL, SDSL, what are the differences?
ADSL speaks to everyone, although it is used less and less, even by individuals, it can be sufficient for a company whose Internet use remains occasional. But why is ADSL tending to disappear? The answer is in its name: Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. This means that this solution offers higher upward flow rates than downward flow rates, hence the term asymmetric. Fewer and fewer companies are content with an ADSL offer and are turning to broadband formulas that guarantee symmetrical speeds.
The SDSL, therefore, allows access to a significant flow; it is an offer particularly popular with SMEs. The main advantage is that businesses know for sure the throughput they will benefit from. The symmetry of the flows allows simultaneous and efficient transmission in both directions. These offers make it possible to reach up to 100 Mbit / s and are therefore necessarily more expensive than ADSL offers.
Internet access in business: Fiber, Unifi, FTTO and FTTE offers
Companies are turning more and more to optical fibre for ever more speed and stability. But what type of fibre to choose? Unifi, FTTO and FTTE, what is behind these offers?
Unifi fibre is consumer fibre, intended for individuals (for connecting with people). It can also be chosen by VSEs / SMEs which do not require a guaranteed recovery time. It is connected to a central point and then distributed to several users. It is a solution that offers more stability and speed than copper internet access such as ADSL or SDSL. It is a solution that is seduced by its performance and its affordable price. For companies whose business depends exclusively on the Internet, the shared aspect of Unifi fibre and asymmetric speeds can present risks.
