You’ve probably heard that different premises are getting access to different types of Fibre technologies. Here at Nextelle, we offer the following Fibre technologies:
- Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
- Fibre to the Node (FTTN)
- Fibre to the Basement (FTTB)
- Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC)
Your maximum attainable line speed is dependent on the type of Fibre technology connected to your home. Your maximum attainable line speed will be the same across plans and across providers. Remember, this is a different measurement to the minimum typical busy period speed – which is the minimum speed we commit to.
Your Fibre service can never go faster than your maximum attainable line speed – even if you switch broadband providers or upgrade to a higher Fibre speed. It may be the case that your service will not even reach the maximum attainable line speed – and we will contact you if this is the case.
Generally, the maximum attainable line speed of technologies using copper (FTTN, FTTB and HFC) may be affected by the length and quality of the copper line connecting your home to the network.
FTTN and FTTB services may also be affected if there is an Fibre co-existence period in your area. Co-existence occurs when both copper and fibre infrastructure is being used simultaneously in the same area, slowing speeds until the Fibre roll-out in that area is completed.
We can’t test your maximum attainable line speed until your Broadband service has been activated. For FTTN and FTTBcustomers, we will contact you to confirm your actual speeds and eligibility for a speed upgrade following activation.
