5. Sharing the connection with multiple devices
“Stop watching movies online! You’re slowing down the whole connection!”
Sound familiar? Internet connections used to be very limited in bandwidth, so any intensive online activity greatly reduces line performance. If you have multiple people using the same line, the limited resources are split even further.
Bandwidth is determined by the height of the frequency range that a cable can carry. Fibre optic cables have much higher bandwidth than traditional copper cables as they carry light, which is a very high frequency signal.
Therefore, fibre broadband can cater to the demands of multiple devices without issue. Now everyone from Grandma to Mike Jr can watch movies to their heart’s content – at the same time!
