A fast and reliable internet connection is one of, if not the, most important things a business now requires. And, there’s a never-ending list of broadband providers out there.
So, why choose Yello’s business broadband?
Depending on the size of your business, the exact setup required will vary. Any plan you take out with Yello will fall into one of the following four service types:
ADSL – Speeds of up to 16Mbps
A basic but secure broadband connection. ADSL connections are served over the same copper wire as phone lines and separated at the end destination via microfilter to allow for both to be used simultaneously. Whilst 16Mbps might be sufficient for small home broadband, businesses of anything above one or two employees should consider more robust service.
FTTC – Speeds of up to 76Mbps
FTTC (Fibre to The Cabinet) broadband is where a fibre cable runs from an exchange to a cabinet in your vicinity. From there, it’s linked to buildings via an existing copper network. This results in fast download speeds with more resilience and stability than ADSL connections. However, copper networking elements can restrict the speeds of which fibre is capable of. FTTC is ideal for most small businesses, allowing for heavy email usage, web applications and basic streaming for small teams.
FTTP – Speeds of up to 500Mbps
FTTP (Fibre to The Premises) broadband is a more complete solution than FTTC. With fibre cable running from your provider all the way to your business. For digital-centric sole traders or SMEs with multiple users all utilising internet-dependent platforms and services. FTTP is the ideal solution, as there’s no interference from copper wiring. Yello can arrange for simple installation of FTTP broadband, so even if you’re in a listed building, we can sort it out for you.
Leased Lines – Speeds of up to 1Gbps
ADSL, FTTC and FTTP services are shared through your local exchange, so the primary connection is shared with other premises in your areas. This means the speeds you receive can vary, depending on overall usage at a given moment. For instance, if everyone in your broadband box vicinity started streaming movies at the same time, it’s likely your bandwidth will be affected. A leased line is a dedicated fibre connection between your business and your internet provider, with no other services from that line. This means you always take advantage of the full bandwidth available as no one else can use it. For larger organisations or small companies where connection and speed are business-critical, a leased line is the ultimate reassurance.
