Shaping is the technology used to control the speed and amount of data used during a certain time. So, during periods of high traffic, when there are a lot of people using the internet, the service provider will shape the line. This will mean that they are slowing down the service to certain sites. An uncapped, unshaped Fibre line gives you constant, reliable and fast access to the internet at all times, meaning that you will experience no drop in your connection speed and you will have access to fast and reliable internet at all times.
Eskom’s continued load-shedding means many broadband subscribers and smartphone users will experience downtime. Even when a company or tower has batteries they eventually run out of power and blackouts occur. Apart from the impact of batteries running down during load-shedding, there is a big increase in theft and vandalism of base stations by criminals when load-shedding
In most cases, WiFi is not its own Internet connection, it shares an Internet connection with the entire network. Theoretically, just having devices connected to WiFi does not slow the speed. But the more devices connected and doing something, the bandwidth has to be shared, thus affecting the speed.
Fibre optic Internet is an Internet connection that transfers data fully or partially via fibre optic cables. “Fibre” refers to the thin glass wires inside the larger protective cable. “Optic” refers to the way the type of data transferred – light signals.
Fibre is faster than average broadband speeds in South Africa. It allows greater capacity of data transmission – it can transfer from minimum 10 Gbps up to unlimited amounts (if you take into consideration how fast the technology is developing). Fibre optic is considered to be considerably faster than copper because its signal is not affected by time or weather degradation.
Fibre is now available in more areas in South Africa than ever before. If you live in one of the main suburbs of Johannesburg, Durban or Cape Town there’s a good chance your home is already covered by a Fibre network or could be soon. The Fibre coverage network is growing every day.
Wireless Fibre uses a combination of fixed wireless, high speed microwave and fibre optic technology to deliver broadband directly to your home or business. You’ll need a small antenna dish which is placed on your roof and aimed towards one of the wireless fibre towers.
Some of the benefits of wireless fibre include quick installation time and reliable internet connections. Due to its satellite coverage wireless fibre is an advanced technology to implement in your home or business for connectivity.
Voice over Internet Protocol, also called IP telephony, is a method and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol networks, such as the Internet.
VoIP allows multiple calls, including conference and group calls, which is an important advantage to many businesses. This makes it easier for employees, management, and business associates to collaborate with each other and to communicate with clients. It’s also faster for clients to connect
with customer support.
Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is the most popular operating system for web servers. Since Linux-based hosting is more popular, it has more of the features web designers expect. So unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is the preferred choice.
There are areas, however, where both Linux and Windows servers are equally matched, is in speed and stability.
Being an open-source platform, Linux is free of cost. Linux hosting offered by web hosting providers is therefore more affordable than Windows hosting.
PHP is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development.
ASP stands for Active Server Page. It is a technology that enables you to make dynamic and interactive web pages.
