What is Ethernet?

Ethernet is delivered over fibre optic circuits and offers speeds anywhere between 3Mbps to 10Gbps depending on whether circuits are completely fibre from end to end – and what quantity of bandwidth you are willing to pay for.

The difference with optic fibre circuits is that there is no resistance and loss of speed over distance as happens with copper wire, meaning data speeds are extremely reliable and quick over any distance. Ethernet is what we recommend for the majority of business purposes, particularly for multi-site connectivity or organisations with heavy data requirements.

Fibre optic internet, or Ethernet, is not like ordinary broadband. It is a high end, business grade service that comes with guarantees. Guaranteed speeds, guaranteed uptime and guaranteed service levels. It means the difference between your staff being able to access and share data through business applications and the web quickly – or frustration and wasted time due to slow connection speeds and not being able to access current information as it’s needed.
