The lower the contention ratio the higher the quality of service. For instance, a 50:1 contention ratio would mean that up to 50 broadband users could be sharing the same bandwidth or ‘pipe’ to the local exchange at any one time. You may notice this slowdown at ‘peak times’ when more users are using the Internet in the organisation or local area. An uncontended Internet connection with a 1:1 ratio is essentially a service where the provider can guarantee a fixed connection speed regardless of the time of day that it’s being used, or regardless of how many people share the pipe to the local exchange.
Uncapped Internet also referred to as unlimited Internet provides unlimited access to the Internet for downloading, gaming, watching and listening to music and videos and giving you the freedom to use as much bandwidth as you like, when you like.
Shaped bandwidth is when certain browsing activities take priority over other activities and is dependent on how busy the network is. Unshaped bandwidth is when your Internet experience is constant and will be fast no matter what the activity is.
Unthrottled means you won’t be punished by us limiting your speed based on usage.
LET’S SEE WHAT SYMMETRICAL
This is a connection that has different upload and download speeds where your uploading effects your downloading and vice versa. A perfect example of hardware used in this case will be
SO WHAT IS SYMMETRICAL BANDWIDTH AND WHY IS IT SO COOL TO HAVE!
This is a connection that has the SAME upload and download speeds.
With SYMMETRICAL BANDWIDTH you are able to have consistency during downloading and uploading without experiencing slow service.
A perfect example of SYMMETRICAL BANDWIDTH SOLUTIONS is the use of VTS FIBER based internet solutions.
