ADSL vs Full Fibre Broadband

Full Fibre broadband is proving to be the popular choice for businesses requiring new broadband connections because of its availability and fast speeds however, for some, ADSL is all that there is available, particularly in rural areas.

In this article, we’ve given you a breakdown of both connections to inform you a little more…

ADSL broadband

ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is a broadband connection that is still available in many areas and works through standard copper telephone lines. You will mostly find it is used within small businesses or homes.

ADSL isn’t the fastest broadband as it depends on how far your business or home is from the telephone exchange, however, it is the more affordable option. To delve further, there are two types of ADSL connections: ADSL and ADS2+. ADSL delivers speeds up to 8Mbps, and ADSL2+ delivers slightly faster speeds of up to 24Mbps.

As it still runs on traditional copper lines, everyone who currently uses ADSL will need to find an alternative in time for the 2025 switch-off.

Fibre Broadband

Full fibre is mainly the connection of choice as it delivers speeds of up to 1Gbps and it doesn’t matter how far you are from the exchange. In addition, it allows multiple devices to be connected to it, can cope with large files, and works well with cloud services whilst remaining speedy, making it the appropriate option for modern businesses.

Unlike ADSL, full fibre runs on fibre optic wires directly from the exchange to your business premises, meaning it is 10x faster than your standard broadband, unlimited, and unrestricted.
