Superfast internet does have its benefits
For the past two years, the NBN or National Broadband Network has provided some of the fastest known working broadband internet connections. It continues to branch out to other areas, replacing old copper line networks with high-speed, fibre-optic connections. Fibre to the Home is the most common type, and is specifically used for residential connections. It provides high speed services and entertainment far beyond the usual residential broadband can deliver or match.
As more residences and businesses sign up on the fastest broadband network of all, the overall speed and quality that was once unattainable has now become standard. It also comes with some awesome capabilities we can expect see more of as it’s use becomes far and widespread. Here are some of them.
Faster Home Networks – a household with a normal broadband connection when compared to a household with fibre optic internet technology are two very disparate homes. Everything will be accomplished in five times the speed, from normal communications, VoIP or voice over the internet phone calls, remote controlling the house from a different location, to even sending a video message from half the world away. The household network becomes a more efficient and powerful hub that meets family broadband needs in lightning speed.
High Quality, streaming HDTV – Those with HDTV box services or hook up their computers to an HDTV now enjoy High Definition movies, series episodes, videos and online documentaries without any interruptions or lags on their streams direct to the TV. NBN more than makes up for delivering the stream in high quality HD like watching real time TV and in crystal clear resolution. Very soon, blue ray quality viewing will also become the norm, connecting viewers to the best and fastest loaded movies and videos online. This also applies to video, audio or multimedia applications, enabling ultra-fast, real time HD viewing.
Teleconferencing – lags, buffer times and interruptions are now a thing of the past for those who use VoIP, video teleconferencing and video calling. They can now be easily set up and accommodate a number of participants on a voice-over-internet-phone connection with video and digicams set-up without worrying about anyone of the participants falling out of the meeting, adding efficiency and productivity with this reliable connection. Even high speed broadband connections experience a few issues with this technology, and the NBN is the best solution.
Database transfers- a huge database that is more than the average hard drive of several hundreds or even thousands of gigs can be a huge problem to transfer, especially over usual broadband internet connections that can be unreliable and much much slower.
Now, with incredible speeds of fibre-optic technology, huge data transfers are super manageable and take five to even ten times the speed of ordinary uploads and downloads and direct file and copy transfers, especially for recipient computers, drives or networks. Cloud server uploads and access for example is more streamlined and will not experience any delay issues anymore.
Seamless Online Gaming – speaking of huge interconnected networks, the kind also in use with complex online gaming networks and competitions, this higher level of broadband internet enables graphics and gameplay intensive networks online to interact flawlessly and seamlessly, eliminating gaming lags and delay issues to deliver real-time gaming like never before. Very soon, other higher level gaming in 3D Virtual Reality will also benefit from its top shelf, top level speed.
