What is Dedicated Internet Access?
Accessing the internet can be done by wired or wireless methods.
Wired internet access is typically provided in the form of cable or fibre. These systems use either a shared or dedicated copper or fibre line. The connection typically runs from a local exchange to your property via a broadband cabinet. It is also possible to get a faster service by running the line directly from the exchange to the premises which results in a faster connection.
A dedicated internet connection is when you do not have to share either the fibre optic or copper cable with other premises, it is for your sole use.
Wireless internet access is typically provided via 4G, 5G or Satellite networks. When it comes to getting your property connected to the internet, choosing a wireless or wired connection depends greatly on the location of the property. Having a dedicated wireless network means the internet access is for the dedicated use of one property.
What is the difference between broadband and dedicated Internet access?
Typically a dedicated internet connection is a fibre connection that runs from the local network exchange directly to your premises. If your business is in a suitable location to have a dedicated fibre connection, this is one of the most efficient methods at guaranteeing a superfast internet connection.
These are the three ways you can connect your property to a wired connection.
FTTP – Fibre to the Premises
FTTP refers to a wired connection that is wired directly to your premises from the exchange. FTTP uses fibre optic cables. Fibre optic cables transmit tiny pulses of light which, as light is the fastest thing on earth, means they deliver a high speed internet connection. FTTP services run directly from the exchange straight to your premises. FTTP services typically provide the fastest upload and download speeds to a property, which are typically five times faster than ADSL services.
FTTC – Fibre to the Cabinet
Fibre to the cabinet means that fibre optic cables are used directly from the exchange to your closest broadband cabinet. A copper wire then delivers the internet from the cabinet to your premises.
ADSL – Copper Wires
Basic broadband access requires a copper phone line connected to the exchange. Telecommunications companies throughout the UK have been working on gradually replacing all copper wires in the ground to fibre optic ones to make the connection faster.
ADSL comes from your local exchange via the old copper wires. ADSL is currently one of the most outdated connectivity methods, and we would recommend accessing a fibre connection whenever possible to achieve faster download and upload speeds.
Is Dedicated Internet Faster than Broadband?
Dedicated internet access provides the highest level of performance. Using a dedicated internet access provider guarantees superfast internet for your business. It is the perfect way to link your business premises to the internet, to ensure you have the reliable, high speed solution your business deserves.
When you use a dedicated internet connection, bandwidth is not shared with anyone else. Speeds are guaranteed and won’t slow down, even at peak times. If you have a dedicated service, you can be sure you will constantly remain online with high bandwidths and fast upload speeds.
