    Well, I have 5 Different Connections. So I can say best Connection is Fibre. After That for Me, Wi-Less Device work Better. After that ADSL Connections

    well I still on ADSL ....
    many of my colleagues and friends shift to fibre...

    price rang

    my 15mbps adsl cost SG 30++

    cheapest fibre in fact i just need to pay close to 10 bucks..

    i know many will comment is quite a bargain....

    but I didn't do much download.....
    next on IM I see don't need much bandwidth perhaps maybe some do a lot on video will need a fast upload , download speed.

    that why I still stick to ADSL ...
    in future well I don't know..perhaps.one day my telecom will force me upgrade or "conspiracy decrease fibre plan" thus I will upgrade...

    in general there is no difference in having services over Fiber or ADSL. technically Fiber can support huge bandwidth to a long distance, on the other hand ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber line or Loop) or copper network has limits. normally a copper network in current scenario can support 16mb upto a 3KM distance in most cases but still need some amplified devices to install at exchange sides due to DB (DECIBEL LOSES). however in Fiber medium, the same bandwidth can be achieved even at 25km distance.

    In Fiber Network information travels in light emitted from exchange side and this medium have huge capacity to cater this light to a long distance with less DB loses. the information travels in packets in Fiber Network which allow to transmit hundred of different information in no time and can be separated through sampling devices. like on a single fiber, 1000's of subscribers can get services like TV, Phone, Internet, Games etc. simultaneously without any trouble with better quality. Fiber has no limits to transfer any bandwidth.

    yup ,
    but I just curious ..those full time IM out there ,
    which connection they use?

    I saw some ..geee have few PCs ...surely need some bandwidth
    My concern does getting high speed fibre home network aid you on IM?

    I doubt so right???
    Unless you more on videos or giving training via Skype yet want to open many applications using the networks behind perhaps..

    In the UK it depends where you live, as to the best connection you can get.

    At home I'm on terrible 4mb ADSL, but at work it's fibre all the way on 20mb :D
