Find out More about Fibre and LTE Products from Mweb

  • With all of the new types of connectivity hitting the market, people often ask us what the difference is between Fibre and LTE. Read on to find out more.

    What is Fibre?

    Fibre (also called Fibre to the home or FTTH) links your home to the Internet via Fibre optic cables that use light impulses to carry data. These impulses bounce along thin glass Fibre tubes at the speed of light, which makes Fibre very fast and stable and results in a more reliable, buffer free, experience for you. Unlike ADSL, the Fibre network has no copper cables, making it theft and weather-proof. With Fibre you no longer need a landline (voice line) from Telkom that you don’t want or use.

    What is LTE?

    LTE is one of the newer types of connectivity and uses wireless networks and SIM card technology to connect you to the Internet. It is quick and easy to install, doesn’t require any fixed line installation and is a great option for people who want flexibility and a quick set up. Once you've got an LTE router and activated your SIM card, you're good to go.
