It is time to move to Fibre

If your business still relies on copper for its connectivity, it may be time to move to high-speed fibre.

Businesses need a robust and reliable communications network, and constant connectivity is essential.

To serve these needs, Telkom has introduced fibre-to-the-business (FTTB) for companies of all sizes in all sectors.

Fibre offers much higher speeds than copper-based ADSL and VDSL, which is needed to support intelligent offices, factories of the future, and the Internet of Things.

Here are 8 reasons why you should choose fibre-to-the-business:

  1. Telkom fibre boasts Internet speeds of up to 100Mbps.
  2. Operating costs can be brought down because fibre is lower-maintenance, less demanding on electricity, and more reliable than copper.
  3. Fibre has lower latency, meaning no noticeable information exchange delays, particularly useful in communication technologies.
  4. Communications are clearer and more reliable because fibre networks are not affected by electrical interference.
  5. Unlike copper, fibre will not corrode.
  6. Physical restrictions will not affect fibre access and speed, no matter how far away you are from the central switching points.
  7. Fibre is able to carry larger information loads further because the signal is not lost over longer distances.
  8. Fibre is much safer than copper because it uses light instead of electrical currents that create heat and could be a fire hazard.
