Broadband technology in Brownhills

The Brownhills exchange supports the following technologies;

Basic Broadband

We use the term Basic Broadband to describe the first version of ADSL generally distributed over short distances from the telephone exchange, usually up to 2 miles (4km) producing download speeds of up to 8Mbs, although much more commonly 2Mbs. In the UK, due to the gauge of the infrastructure beployed by BT, 2Mbs ADSL connectivity can exceed 5 miles (8km).

Next Generation Access

BT's Next Generation Access (or 21CN) which is more typically known as Very fast DSL (VDSL) achieving download speeds of up to 24Mbs. This technology is still a Traditional Copper Local Loop with Fibre from the Brownhills exchange to the Internet.

Super Fast Broadband

Super Fast Broadband (as defined by Ofcom) describes Broadband connectivity with download speeds of between 30Mbs and 100Mbs, typically (but not exclusively) delivered by means of Fibre to the Cabinet (FttC). BT's deployment of this involves a copper connection between the household and the Cabinet and then a fibre connection between the Cabinet and the Brownhills exchange and the Internet.

Ultra Fast Broadband

In the UK, Ultra Fast Broadband describes download speeds in excess of 100Mbs. This can be delivered via a number of technologies including Fibre to the Building (FttB), used for Multi-Dwelling units and Multi-Occupancy units, and Fibre to the Property (FTTP), or more commonly known outside the UK as Fibre to the Household (FttH). Note that GEA-FTTP is currently available while FttP on Demand is in Early Market Deployment.

Virgin Media Super Fast Fibre Broadband

Virgin Media offer an up to 76MBs service over conventional ADSL (Broadband and Super Fast Broadband) and FTTC (Ultra Fast Broadband) via Unbundled Local Loop Services in the same way as BT, TalkTalk, Sky, etc via BT Openreach where they cannot provide true Fibre. Where they can provide true Fibre (which is not a given as their lack-luster coverage a real eye-opener) over infrastructure acquired when Virgin Media merged/bought National Transcommunications Limited (NTL:) which in turn was created as a result of NTL: acquiring all the regional Cable providers in the UK such as Diamond Cable, CableTel, Comcast, Telewest and so on. Virgin Media's Fibre Service can give you a blistering 200MBs service which will effortlessly support simultaneous applications such as (S)UHDTV, online gaming, web browsing and more. The fibre service is also special because it is more (although not completely) of a synchronous service than is on offer form many of the competing products, such as FTTC, which means you have outstanding upload capabilities as well as download. Although this is not important for the majority of Internet users at the moment it will become more and more important when Cloud backups, photo and movie sharing, HD Video (Skype) and similar applications become ubiquitous.

Plusnet Broadband

Plus.net is BT's Sheffield based consumer broadband offering. Plus.net has been formed as a result of merger and acquisition over the last 10 or more years of a number of companies including Force9 and Free-online. As a domestic broadband offering Plus.net has attempted to focus on customer service and and low friction connection (arguably facilitating a land grab) by supplying low cost easy to use routers, easy access Value Added Services like email, Voip calling, etc. Plus.net offers the full range of products available to any other Unbundled Local Loop ISP that might be accessible via TalkTalk, Sky or even BT. As a result there are no service or performance advantages to be gained from using Plus.net over any other provider.

What is ADSL?

ADSL is Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, a data communications technology that enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines rather than that which a conventional voiceband modem can provide. ADSL works by utilizing frequencies that are not used by a voice telephone call. A splitter (DSL filter), allows a single telephone connection to be used for both ADSL and voice at the same time.
ADSL is Asymmetric as the download speed is usually many time greater than the upload speed, which benefits normal web related activities such as receiving email, web browsing and streaming TV. When it comes to sending email, uploading video, pictures and music or backup files to cloud service like DropBox, iCloud, etc then an asymmetric connection is suboptimal.

How to Switch Broadband Providers

Are you looking for a broadband provider offering the best broadband deals that better suit your needs? If yes, then you need to have some advanced knowledge and a good understanding of the specifics involved before making a decision. The things you should know before switching broadband providers include:

Analyze Your Preferences and Needs

The first step is to know your requirements. What do you want in a broadband package? Are you looking for high speed broadband, possibly fiber broadband? Do you want a higher download limit for data? Do you need a cheaper internet connection? Know what your preferences are and then compare broadband deals on our site at Broadband Compare UK to find the best broadband.

What Are The Common Reasons To Switch?

  • Inexpensive and less costly options,
  • Increased download speeds (maybe fibre broadband),
  • Better customer service and reliability,
  • Shorter durations of contract or no contract broadband deals.

Check with Your Current Internet Provider

The first step before switching broadband providers is to check your current contract. Have you completed the minimum term to end the contract? You can also contact your provider if you are confused about the deadline. It is important to get free from one service provider before moving to another one.

Start Looking For New Options

Start looking for the best broadband provider possible. You can make a list of all the possible options you have. It is important to have all the essential details before making any decision. Take into consideration the connection charges, monthly cost, line rental and any hidden charges there may be. Sometimes its possible to find broadband without line rental charges.

Compare Different Broadband Offers and Service Providers

If you decide to leave your current service provider, there is a high chance that they will offer you an improved package with better add-ons or at the least cheap broadband. Therefore, it is very important to compare all the options. Most of the broadband services are contract based and you will have to complete a minimum given duration. The three main factors you should do your broadband comparison on include price, bandwidth and usage limit (look for unlimited broadband packages). Don't forget to ask every service provider for the details below:

  • Speed of the connection - ideally superfast broadband,
  • Method of billing and availability of discounts,
  • Customer services,
  • Availability of technical support,
  • Duration of contract.

Switching To the New Provider

If you are switching home broadband providers, then it will be easier for the new provider to make the arrangements. The new service provider will communicate with the old provider and both of the parties will issue you notification letters.
However, if you are planning to switch broadband from, or to a cable network, which are not connected to each other, you will have to end your current service first and then begin another one. After that, you will receive notification from your previous provider that the contract has ended. Then, you can apply for a new contract with a new internet provider after paying the required fee.
