At Caleycom We offer both Fixed Wireless broadband and Fibre Optic broadband
Fibre optic broadband and fixed wireless broadband are both high-speed internet options, but they differ in how they deliver data.
Fibre optic broadband uses fibre optic cables made of glass or plastic strands to transmit data as pulses of light. These cables provide a direct, physical connection between the internet service provider and the customer, enabling fast and reliable internet speeds. fibre optic broadband can transmit data at very high speeds and is typically the fastest and most reliable type of broadband available.
Fixed wireless broadband, on the other hand, uses radio signals to transmit data from a fixed antenna on a tower or mast to a receiver on the customer's property. Fixed wireless broadband relies on line of sight, meaning that there must be a clear path between the tower or mast and the receiver. As such, fixed wireless broadband may be subject to interference from trees, buildings, and other obstacles. Despite this limitation, fixed wireless broadband can still provide high-speed internet access in areas where fibre optic broadband is not available or too expensive to install.
Copper broadband, also known as ADSL, uses copper wires to transmit data over telephone lines. Copper broadband is typically slower and less reliable than fibre optic or fixed wireless broadband, and its performance may be affected by distance from the exchange, the quality of phone lines, and interference from other electronic devices.
In summary, fibre optic broadband offers the fastest and most reliable internet speeds, while fixed wireless broadband provides a high-speed alternative in areas where fibre is not available or too expensive to install. Copper broadband is generally slower and less reliable than both fibre and fixed wireless broadband. The choice between the three depends on individual needs and circumstances, such as location, internet usage requirements, and availability of broadband options.
