What is the difference between Wireless connectivity and WiFi?

The term wireless can be defined as using radio signals or microwaves to broadcast or transmit signals wirelessly.

WiFi is a facility which allows computers, smartphones, tablets and other devices to connect to the internet. WiFi also allows these devices to communicate with one another over a private network.

What does synchronous and asynchronous mean?

Synchronous means that upload and downloads speeds are the same (Transmitting and receiving are equal). i.e. 10Mbps download speed and 10Mbps Upload speed. Asynchronous transmits and receives at different speeds. i.e. 10Mbs download speed and 2 Mbps Upload speed.

What does uncapped Internet mean?

Uncapped means you have an unlimited amount of data available to consume. There is no overall limit to how much data you can use. It is important to note that some Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) have a monthly “threshold” value. Although you can still consume data past the threshold, your line speed may be affected through throttling or shaping policies. Consider the vehicle example below. The only difference is that the petrol tank contains an unlimited amount of petrol (Uncapped), effectively meaning that it can drive forever. However, once a certain distance (threshold) has been reached, the vehicles speed will be reduced.

A capped connection means you have a limited amount of data available to consume over a specific time period (usually a month). Your capped amount is not the same as your line speed. Your line speed determines how quickly a webpage will load or how quickly a file will download whereas your “capped” value determines how many files you can download. Imagine a vehicle – the size of the engine (line speed) determines how fast the vehicle will travel and the size of the petrol tank (capped value) determines how far the vehicle can travel.

What does uncontended Internet mean?

Uncontended means that you get a fixed connection speed regardless of how many other companies share the pipe. Contended means that speeds are not fixed and will fluctuate depending on how many companies or people are connecting.

The contention ratio is actually very important when considering what type of internet service is required. The higher the ratio the lower the maximum bandwidth will be, or the slower your connection will be. BitCo Fibre offers a 1 : 1 contention ratio on our Fibre services so we can guarantee a fixed connection speed regardless of the time of day that it’s being used or regardless of how many people / business’ share the pipe to the local exchange.

What is an Acceptable and Fair Usage Policy? (AFUP)

An A&FUP is a document that sets out rules for an owner, creator or administrator of a network. It defines what users on the network may and may not do. Basically, it’s a guideline of how the network can be used. Terms that may appear in an A&FUP document (but are not limited to):

  • Unlawful use
  • Prohibited activities
  • Uncapped & Capped, Shaping and Throttling procedures
  • Notice and Take down Procedures
  • Complaints procedures
  • Etc.
