ScottNET IT Management Solutions offer a range of reliable Connectivity Solutions to suit your business needs with a team of experts who are able to advise you on the right Connectivity option for you.

Internet connectivity options include: Wireless Broadband Internet, LTE / Fixed LTE and Fibre.


Fibre is a great product for internet connectivity.

We try and explain it as best we can below because it is sometimes unclear why business fibre costs are significantly more than home fibre when, on face value, both products often offer uncapped data and comparable speeds.

Terms that affect the different options for Fibre:

This refers to the number of users that can access or share the network simultaneously at the same line speed. You will often see symbols like 1:1, 1:10 etc.

Best-effort service offerings are not predictable—they are based on the state of the network at any given time. There is little or no prior knowledge about available performance, and there is no control over the network at any time.

A service-level agreement (SLA) defines the level of service you expect from a vendor, laying out the metrics by which service is measured, as well as remedies or penalties should agreed-on service levels not be achieved.

It is a critical component of any technology vendor contract.

Symmetrical connections are exactly what they sound like; a connection with equal download and upload speeds. For example, with a 500/500 Mbps fibre nternet connection you get 500 Mbps of download AND 500 Mbps of upload speeds.

An asymmetrical connection, however, does NOT have equal download/upload speeds. For example, 60/3 means 60 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speed. Asymmetrical speeds are usually found in traditional internet connections, like ADSL.

We have a host of Fibre Provider Partners in the country that offer various types of fibre.

Typically, your best effort service that can be asymmetrical and have the lowest cost of any fibre link.


Broadband fibre – Contended Service, Symmetrical Bandwidth and the cheapest of the business fibre products.


Uncontended Service, Symmetrical Bandwidth, Backed by Service Level Agreements.

Microwave Wireless Point to Point (PtP) Links

Microwave Internet connectivity is a wireless internet solution that functions as a worthy alternative to fibre connectivity. It uses radio waves (rather than fixed lines) to transmit data in a wireless connection.

Fixed Wireless is communication between multiple points of presence that utilizes Microwave RF to transmit high-speed data. These frequencies permit high bandwidth and low latency, which increases end user productivity. By utilizing fixed wireless, companies eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming installation of cable or local phone lines. There are many advantages for companies that use fixed wireless such as scalable bandwidth, network diversity, and quick installation.

Long Term Evolution or LTE, as it’s commonly called, refers to the 4G technology or 4th generation wireless broadband standard. It is typically a wireless connection from your device to one of the Cellular Providers. The speed of the links are influenced by the signal strength of your device to the nearest cellular tower.

LTE services are a best effort service and are contended. They are therefore recommended where there is no fibre coverage or as a backup solution in case your Primary Internet link goes down.

LTE vs Fixed LTE

With LTE you can connect to any tower with the ability to roam - you also can connect to 3G.etc

With Fixed LTE, you're only allowed to connect to towers that have been allocated for this use, you won't be able to roam on other networks, also majority of the time it's either 4G or no Internet.
