The Ethernet Over Copper Internet Connection
Why do business owners love Ethernet over copper internet so much? After all, it's not as "flashy" as a fiber connection!
However, the majority of U.S. businesses aren't taking advantage of all that flash. Instead, they're looking for a more affordable option that doesn't force them to throw quality out the window. Here's why Ethernet over copper internet offers exactly that:
- It uses telephone wires
This may not seem very "wave of the future" to you, but hang on! Copper telephone wires can be very powerful when they're installed the right way (you'll see that down below). And, as an added benefit, using telephone wires -- as opposed to expensive fiber -- can save you a ton of money. In fact, Ethernet over copper internet is considered to be the "bridge" between traditional telecom lines and fiber connections!
- It can have as much -- or as little -- Internet Bandwidth as you want
Even though we're talking about plain ol' telephone wires, Ethernet over copper internet can come with a ton of bandwidth. That’s because those copper wires are formed into "dry pairs", and each dry pair can carry up to 5 Mbps of bandwidth. As a result, you can choose exactly how much speed you want -- and only pay for that specific amount.
Best of all, your Ethernet over copper internet will be able to handle all of the "fancy" requirements you throw at it. For example, it can accommodate giant file transfers, live audio streams, and video conferences with no problems. Try doing any of those with cable or DSL!
- It uses a basic router
When you think of today's high-speed internet options, you probably think of fancy routers, a ton of other expensive equipment, and even special build outs to get your facility ready for it all. However, that's not the case with Ethernet over copper internet!
Instead, this technology uses a basic router that plugs into an Ethernet jack. You'll never have to worry about spending money on a bunch of "special" equipment just to get your service up and running.
And, odds are you're already set up for Ethernet service. After all, many businesses use Ethernet to connect their internal computers together. Now, you're simply taking the same technology and using it to access the world wide web.
- It can link everyone together
One of the most frustrating things for bigger companies (or businesses where the employees work from all over the place) is having each location on a separate network. Luckily, Ethernet over copper internet allows you to connect all of your office locations together through a WAN.
