If you’re looking for a new business broadband solution you may have seen the term fibre broadband commonly being used. 

But what is fibre and how will it benefit your business? 

In this article we will cover everything you need to know about fibre broadband to help you make the right choice for your business. 

Let’s begin!

What is Fibre Broadband?

Fibre broadband is an internet connection that is transferred through fibre optic cables underground. 

How is it Different to a Standard Broadband Connection?

A standard broadband connection will use your business’ existing broadband and phone line connections. 

Due to this, standard business broadband connections are more common. Fibre broadband connections aren’t currently available in all parts of the UK. A fibre check will need to be conducted in order to see if your area has access to fibre broadband. 

What are the Benefits of Fibre Broadband?

With a fibre broadband connection you will experience many benefits including much faster speeds. 

By having fast internet speeds your team will be able to work more efficiently, which will help to increase the productivity of your workforce. 

A more productive workforce will inevitably result in greater profit levels and a more successful business. 

Are There Any Disadvantages?

The main disadvantage of fibre broadband is that it is not yet available in all parts of the UK which means that not all businesses will have access to it. 

However the government are rolling out schemes to get fibre across more areas. 

Fibre may also be slightly more expensive than a standard business broadband connection (but not bank breaking) and the productivity you will experience thanks to supefast speeds will be well worth the extra pennies.

How do you Know if Fibre Broadband is Right for Your Business?

There are some simple questions to ask yourself to find out if fibre broadband is right for your business. 

The first being whether the internet is crucial for the running of your business. Now this may seem like a silly question as the internet is needed for almost everything these days.

If you’re just using your internet connection to send a few emails and for the odd Google search here and there, it’s likely that you’ll be fine with just a standard connection as the demand wont be that great. 

However If you have lots of employees or customers (or both) that are trying to access the internet at the same time, fibre broadband will be a good choice for you. 

The other important question will be whether fibre is available in your area. 

If you find that fibre broadband is not available where your business is located - don’t worry! Yo Telecom supply standard business broadband connections that will give you great speeds and will cover your entire building!
