TechnologyFibre Optic [?]
3G & 4G: Mobile phone technology that includes services and applications with faster access to the web.
ADSL: Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line - the technology that allows you to receive broadband using existing telephone networks. It works like a very fast telephone line that is always connected to the internet. By converting data more efficiently over a wider frequency range than a computer´s modem, ADSL makes the line much faster.
Cable broadband: Much like cable television and telephone services, broadband is carried through a fibre optic cable buried under the ground.
Fibre optic: Utilising the latest cable technology Fibre Optic Broadband can deliver speeds up to six times faster than ADSL lines.
Satellite broadband: An alternative to ADSL that uses a satellite connection to provide a permanent connection to the internet.
