Fibre versus an ADSL line.

0 votes
Hi, I am enquiring about Fibre compared to ADSL. I have an ADSL line with 150 gb data monthly with Afrihost. If I was to sign up with fibre, would I need 150gb data monthly or does fibre use less?

thanks, Megan

Hi Megan

I Trust you are well,

Fibre does not use less data, usage is influenced by the end user patterns.

The benefit of Fibre is that you have a fixed connection speed and a more stable line as opposed to ADSL,

Data consumption is the same however on a faster line it may deplete faster due to high data rate transfer. eg: Youtube HD data stream.
