In recent years, we’ve witnessed ADSL getting less and less popular because of better and faster technologies entering the connectivity market.

The earliest adopters of these new technologies were, of course, businesses.

We can all attest to the benefits ripped by businesses with high-speed connectivity, such as Fibre.

With automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) becoming more prevalent and taking over the monotonous tasks in our homes, it is becoming increasingly important for every home to have a Fibre connection.

Why Fibre to the Home?

Apart from the fact that Fibre offers stupendous speeds in comparison to Wireless and ADSL, it is more reliable, less invasive once laid and future-proof. One may argue that the incoming 5G promises just as much speed, however, this technology’s equipment can be easily affected by changing weather conditions, buildings, trees etc.
