Should Your Business Use ADSL or Fibre Internet?

October 06, 2016

Fibre Internet is fast gaining popularity among South African businesses, thanks to its potential to offer light-speed connectivity and enhanced stability for larger numbers of users. There’s a lot of water-cooler talk around this new technology, but how do you know if it’s right for your company?




Here, we compare ADSL and Fibre Internet – two of the major players in the business connectivity space – to help you decide which would better suit your company’s needs. For some businesses, ADSL is the clear front-runner, while for others, switching to Fibre is the way forward.

To get a quick overview of the difference between ADSL and Fibre, read Fibre vs ADSL: Which is best for your businesses? This article also talks about the availability, reliability, speed and cost of both options – all critical factors to consider when making your choice.


Getting down to brass tacks: which businesses are best suited to ADSL, and which to Fibre?

Now that you’re all clued up, this table can help you make your final decision.




Choose Fibre Internet if:

  • You have a large workforce that is regularly connected to the Internet.
  • All work depends on having an Internet connection (i.e. cloud-based businesses).
  • Speed and reliability is more critical than cost.


Choose ADSL if:

  • You have a smaller workforce.
