ADSL, fibre optics, Wi-Fi, 4G, for trading, there are different ways to be connected. Here are some tips to optimize your Internet connection.
If you have ever encountered connection problems during a Trading session, you most certainly know how damaging these inconveniences can be. So let’s take stock of the different connection options, without forgetting some practical advice to avoid being caught off guard in the event of an Internet cut. This is why promosi Unifi is the best solution.
The second wired option, optical fibre is used for high-speed data transmission. It crushes all competition with a theoretical speed of 1 Gbit / s (Gigabit per second) for downloading and up to 300 Mbit / s for sending. This outperformance is explained by the fact that the optical fibre uses its own network (unlike ADSL) and technology based on light.
Wireless Connections: Wi-Fi, 4G
Wireless networks are convenient for nomads. They can also be used as a backup in the event of an interruption in the wired voice connection. However, the speed of the wireless network is lower than that of the optical fibre.
Wi-Fi can connect by radio to multiple devices within a computer network. The speed depends on the standard you have, either by your computer which is equipped with a Wi-Fi card or by a Wi-Fi USB key.
Wired connections: ADSL, optical fibre
Wired connections are still the best option for connecting to the Internet. Thanks to them, you receive a higher Internet speed (via optical fibre) than with wireless connections.
- Downlink speeds of over 10 Mbit / s
- Lower upstream (transmit) rates
- Guaranteed speed connection or not
Fast file download and internet browsing
The first wired option, ADSL uses the traditional telephone line with part of the signal reserved for ADSL and the other for telephony, hence the need to use a filter to separate the signals. Set up in 1999 in France, ADSL has made it possible to display a theoretical speed of 512 Kbit / s (Kilobit per second), retiring our good old first 56 Kbit / s modems. Today, there are other variants such as ADSL2 + announcing a theoretical speed of 25 Mbit / s (Megabit per second) or VDSL.
