ADSL is the oldest of the 4 broadband services we provide, and has the lowest capacity of the 4 as it’s maximum speed is 8Mbps. The vast majority of business premises can receive ADSL 2+ (explained below) but a few locations will continue to be served by the original ADSL as their exchanges have to be upgraded which would allow them to utilise ADSL 2 or fibre connections.
ADSL 2+ is now the most common broadband connectivity option, despite the growth of fibre connections, and provides speeds of up to 24Mbps thanks to upgraded exchanges across the country. Alongside these faster download speeds, ADSL 2+ also allows for upgraded uploads speeds, making them more suitable for those working with large digital files such as design houses for example.
Fibre Optic Broadband
In the last 5 years, fibre optic broadband has become the connection of choice for personal and business broadband alike. This is thanks to the fact it can provide download speeds of up to 80Mbps download and 20Mbps upload, making it considerably faster than ADSL and ADSL 2+. We offer two fibre option connection options, Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). The decision on which fibre option you can take will depend on what infrastructure has been installed in your area. For more information, visit our dedicated fibre connections page.
