What is full fibre broadband?
To understand what full fibre-optic broadband is, you first have to understand where the terms 'broadband' and 'fibre optic' come from. Firstly, 'broadband' is simply the term used to describe a wide bandwidth of data transmissions across the internet, enabling users to download, access, and stream data at fast speeds. Broadband promises a permanent connection, unlike some other methods, and is faster than dial-up internet access like traditional analogue.
Full fibre broadband, then, refers to the type of broadband installed. Fibre optic wires are made out of either glass or plastic, and transmit data through pulses of light - nothing is faster than light!
What is ITS Technology Group?
ITS is a broadband provider that offers customers a whole new level of full fibre-optic broadband. ITS offers a diverse portfolio of broadband products, from fibre to the premises (FTPP) to full fibre leased lines. So no matter whether you're a small residency or the owner of a larger building, ITS is the go-to choice of state-of-the-art broadband services.
What makes ITS different?
When it comes to setting itself apart from other broadband providers, ITS goes above and beyond - quite literally! As well as the traditional FTTP service, ITS also proudly offers a "fibre through the air" installation too. This is cutting-edge wireless equipment that offers minimum disruption during installation while offering the same gigabit capacity.
Unlike many other providers, ITS has a 'dig once' approach to the installation of any of their products. What this means is that, wherever possible, ITS will use existing ducts and infrastructure to place their cables. Not only does this promise a far quicker installation than the substantial 90 days as is the industry norm, but this also lowers the impact on the environment by minimising the necessity for a "civil dig".
How is ITS making a difference?
ITS is making a difference at every stage of the broadband lifecycle; from the creation of new pioneering broadband products such as "fibre through the air" to working conscientiously to minimise the environmental impact that the installation of broadband products can cause, ITS strives to continually improve itself as a business. ITS is also a member of the government's 2018 Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, which helps qualifying customers to access the funds to subsidise the cost of initial connection. These vouchers can be used by small businesses and their surrounding local communities, and have proven invaluable for many that could otherwise not afford the full cost.
What does ITS offer?
ITS offers a wide range of broadband products. With full fibre broadband capable of delivering impressive speeds of up to 1Gbps, ITS installs cables right at your household boundary (FTTP). ITS promises consistent connection and excellent bandwidth no matter where in the house you are.
ITS full fibre broadband boasts many benefits, including low contention, unlimited data transfer, the potential for upgrades, premium support, and download speeds of up to 1Gbps. Showcasing a versatile portfolio of products, just a few of the choices you can expect to pick from when opting for ITS installation include dark fibre, fibre broadband, fibre leased lines, wireless broadband, and wireless leased lines. Each of these options reaps their own benefits and are suitable for different types of household buildings and needs. Brief summaries of the different ITS products are below.
Dark fibre: This is a broadband choice ideal for those that prioritise privacy. It enables you to create your own private network, which offers you control over connectivity. Dark fibre also offers near limitless bandwidth and ultimate security.
Fibre broadband: This is the most common type of broadband being installed when upgrading from the older copper lines. As mentioned above, full fibre broadband features cables that are made out of plastic or glass, and transmit data through pulses of light. It's currently the quickest method of data transmission across the internet that we know of.
Fibre Leased Lines
This is the same as fibre broadband, but instead of being accessible to anyone, you invest in a private line installed on your property that only users within that household can access. This could mean more bandwidth on every device, as well as fasting loading times when streaming or loading data.
As broadband is the network for everyone, wireless broadband has the same concepts - just without cables installed. At the time of writing, most wireless broadbands operate through 4G, which is an ideal choice for those properties where the installation of cables is not advised, for whatever environmental reason that may be.
Wireless Leased Lines
The antennae for wireless leased lines are privately installed on your building, whether it be a home, business site, or school campus. Like fibre leased lines, this broadband isn't available to the public - only people you want to access the broadband can do so.
These are the main types of broadband offered by ITS - we'll be more than happy to run you through them in more detail if you're struggling to decide which one is best for you!
