Rocket Broadband, why we are different….
Here at Rocket Broadband we operate our own network and do not use, or sell NBN connected services. This means we bypass the need to use the in ground fibre and copper network and connect apartment buildings, office buildings, student accommodation, and industrial business parks directly to our network via our own fibre or fixed wireless network.
As this is our network the distribution speeds are designed by us to build more speed into the network, and after all, speed is the the priority.
Unlike traditional DSL networks which had a contention ration of 80:1, or the NBN network with a estimated minimum of 300:1 contention. Our residential services are no higher than 25:1, and our business services are maximum of 10:1
So what does contention actually mean?
Simply put, on the Rocket Broadband network residential users share the internet access with 25 other people at the same time.
NBN network can be as high as 300:1 or higher. So you are sharing it with 300 other connections at the same time. This explains why at peak times, things can slow down.
We like to call it your own private super fast freeway lane, getting you to your destination quickly with less traffic congestion. Nice huh !
