Broadband is a phrase used to describe high-speed Internet connectivity that is always available and faster than traditional dial-up access. Several high-speed transmission technologies are included in Jom Apply 300Mbps Unifi broadband. A variety of factors will influence which broadband technology you choose. These factors could include where you live (urban or rural), how broadband Internet connection is combined with additional services (such as voice telephone and home entertainment), price, and availability
Subscriber Line in Digital Format (DSL)
DSL is a wireline transmission technology that allows data to be transmitted more quickly over existing copper telephone lines in households and businesses. The transmission speeds of DSL-based broadband range from a few hundred Kbps to millions of bits per second (Mbps). The distance between your house or business and the nearest telephone provider facility may affect the availability and speed of your DSL connection.
DSL transmission technologies include the following:
Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) – Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is generally used by household customers, such as Internet surfers, who receive a lot of data but don’t send much. The downstream direction of ADSL is often faster than the upstream direction. ADSL enables for quicker downstream data transmission over the same line that is used for voice service, without interfering with conventional phone calls.
SDSL (Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Line) – Typically used by enterprises for video conferencing and other services that require a lot of bandwidth both upstream and downstream.
Modem through cable
Cable modem service allows cable companies to transmit broadband through the same coaxial lines that deliver video and audio to your television.
The majority of cable modems are external devices with two connections: one to a cable outlet and the other to a PC. They offer 1.5 Mbps or higher transmission speeds.
Subscribers can use their cable modem connection without dialling up an ISP by simply turning on their PCs. While utilising it, you can still watch cable television. The type of cable modem, cable network, and traffic load all influence transmission speeds. The speeds are comparable to those of DSL.
Fiber optic technology turns data-carrying electrical signals into light, which is then transmitted through clear glass fibres with a diameter of about a human hair. Fiber transfers data at speeds that are tens or even hundreds of times faster than existing DSL or cable modem speeds.
The speed you get depends on a number of things, including how close the service provider connects the fibre to your computer and how the service provider configures the service, including the quantity of bandwidth used. The same fibre that delivers your broadband can also supply talk (VoIP) and video services, including video-on-demand, at the same time.
The fibre can be run all the way to the customer’s home or company, to the curb outside, or to a position halfway between the provider’s facilities and the customer, depending on the technology used.
Wireless broadband uses a radio link between the customer’s location and the service provider’s facility to connect a home or business to the Internet. Mobile or fixed wireless broadband is available.
Broadband service is provided via wireless technologies using longer-range directional equipment in rural or sparsely inhabited locations where DSL or cable modem service would be prohibitively expensive. DSL and cable modem speeds are often comparable. In most cases, an external antenna is necessary.
Consumers can access the Internet from a fixed point while stationary using wireless broadband Internet access services offered over fixed networks, which often need a direct line-of-sight between the wireless transmitter and receiver. Both licenced and unauthorised devices have been used to provide these services. Thousands of tiny Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), for example, use unlicensed devices to provide wireless broadband at speeds of roughly one megabit per second, often in rural areas not served by cable or wireline broadband networks.
WLANs (Wireless Local Area Networks) are used to extend the reach of a “last-mile” wireline or fixed wireless broadband connection within a house, building, or university environment. Unlicensed devices are used in Wi-Fi networks, which can be configured for private access within a house or business or for public Internet access at “hot spots” including restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, airports, conference centres, and city parks.
Mobile telephone service companies and others are now offering mobile wireless broadband services. These services are typically intended for highly mobile consumers and require a specific PC card with an integrated antenna that is plugged into the user’s laptop computer. In general, they offer slower speeds, typically in the hundreds of Kbps range.
