Some broadband can slow down just when needed most. Virocom Business Broadband delivers consistent connectivity with 24/7 support too.
Virocom Business Broadband can be a cheaper option than leased lines for your smaller office sites or retail premises.
It’s also ideal for home-working. If your home-workers are left to make their own arrangements, your IT team faces troubleshooting with multiple suppliers. Virocom Business Broadband can remove that hassle.
ADSL comes from your local BT phone exchange via the copper telephone wires in your street. It is the most widely available broadband connection in the UK. Virocom will test and activate the line for you.
The speed of ADSL broadband depends on your distance from the local telephone exchange. Signal deteriorates over distance, so the closer you are to your exchange, the higher your speed.
Fibre broadband delivers broadband to your business over fibre optic cables giving you superfast Internet speeds. It is significantly quicker than standard phone line broadband and in some areas fibre options can be hundreds of times faster than ADSL. However, most fibre broadband does not go all the way to your premises and the last few hundred metres will probably be delivered over traditional BT phone lines. This is known as Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) broadband.
FTTC is a where the fibre optic cable runs from the telephone exchange to your local telecoms cabinet — the green box at the end of your street. Many cabinets will have a ‘Fibre broadband available here’ sticker on them where it is available. The connection from the cabinet to your business is via the standard copper telephone line.
Depending on how far your house is from the cabinet you can enjoy Internet speeds of up to 76Mbps download and up to 19.5Mb upload. What is Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) Broadband?
The only true fibre optic to your business services are supplied using Fibre To The Property (FTTP), as the fibre optic cables are used for the entire length of the connection from the exchange to your business.
FTTP is perfect for any business that relies on Internet performance on a daily-basis or has heavy Internet users or big consumers of media who want a consistent experience and speeds up to 330Mbps.
FTTP is available in limited areas so please check your FTTP availability and we’ll show you the broadband options available in your area.
