More information on 'what is what'

FTTC or ‘Fibre To The Cabinet’ provides a super-fast broadband connection over fibre optic cable from the Telephone Exchange to the green street-side box. Then the shorter run of cable between the street-side box and the end user premises uses a copper telephone line. This provides much higher speeds than ADSL broadband. Downsteam can be up to 80 Mbps and upstream speed of up to 19 Mbps.

FTTC has various other common names – Super Fast Broadband, Fibre Broadband & Infinity.

Satellite Broadband

Satellite broadband is an option available to businesses in rural areas where traditional fixed-line based broadband services aren’t yet available.

The main advantage of satellite broadband is that it can be provided virtually anywhere in the world, so long as you have a clear line of sight to the south generally.

Considerations

Latency: Due to the long distances involved (up to a satellite in geo-stationary orbit) some data transfer latency is introduced. It can limit the use of real-time applications but video conferencing and VoIP will work so long as you allow for some additional lag.

Weather: Satellite broadband can be affected by the weather. It requires line of sight between the dish and the satellite orbiting above earth. Although a general rain shower shouldn’t affect things, a large storm should cause disruption to your broadband link.

But when no other internet services are available, the benefits usually outweigh the latency drawbacks!
