The internet is an indispensable part of our daily lives. Work, entertainment and communication, we rely on a stable and speedy internet connection to get things done efficiently. Because each internet user is different, they do not have the same line speed requirements. Optimal internet line speed varies based on usage patterns and specific needs. Faircom offers tailored fibre solutions for each.

How is line speed measured?
Megabits per second (Mbps) is the unit used to express the rate at which data travels along fibre optic cables. The higher the number of Mbps, the faster the data is transmitted and received. Gigabits per second (Gbps), is the fastest speed available, and higher than Megabits per second (Mbps).
The perfect line speed for every user
Casual users browse social media, check emails, and stream videos and movies. The best line speed for casual browsing would be 10-25 Mbps. This speed guarantees seamless browsing and uninterrupted standard-definition streaming.
Remote workers need high-speed internet. Video conferencing, file sharing, and quickly accessing cloud-based applications are requirements of remote work. Faircom recommends a line speed of 25-50 Mbps, for seamless virtual meetings, easy upload and download of files, and effortless collaboration with team members.
For a lag-free gaming experience, gamers require low latency and high-speed internet. Therefore, a 50-100 Mbps speed line is best. This means smooth gaming, quick response times, and minimised latency. Faircom’s specialised packages are optimised for low latency and high-speed data transmission.
Content creators are continually online, collaborating and engaging with their online audience. They stream content, upload large video and image files, and ‘go live’, meaning they require a robust internet connection with a line speed of 100+ Mbps. Our fibre packages empower content creators to upload and stream their content seamlessly, enhancing their productivity and reach.
Busy households mean numerous internet users all engaging with different content and activities on multiple platforms simultaneously; this means a higher internet speed if necessary to carry the load. This means fibre packages with speeds ranging from 100-500 Mbps to accommodate video streaming, online gaming, video conferencing, and more.
