Dynamic, Reliable, Efficient, Dynamic and Driven
Fredd is anything but your everyday, common or garden broadband service provider. You know the kind of Internet connection where the speed varies between slow and dead slow; and the kind of connection that gives you an uploading speed that’s a tiny fraction of your download speed.
Fredd is a truly world class UFB that few networks can compare with, here in South Africa.
Without getting too technical, here, briefly, are some of the unique benefits of Fredd:
Depending on the package of your choice, Fredd can supply what’s called a symmetrical system. This means that your upload and download speeds are 100% equal, and more to the point, equally fast.
Fredd’s your ultimate one-stop-shop for all things broadband: telephony, including VOIP and video conferencing, cloud computing for all your hosted services from Infrastructure-as-a- Service (IaaS) to Software-as-a- Service (SaaS) to all your storage and back-up needs, IT support services and security services, to name but a few.
Low contention ratio
Fredd offers a substantially low contention ratio compared to other national operators. This refers to the amount of people sharing (or contending for) the same bandwidth leading to your local exchange. The lower the contention ratio the better the service. And as you can see, Fredd is way above the norm when surfing the Internet. When you’re connected to the data centre, there’s zero contention, which means lightning speeds.
Fredd’s fibre network is not affected by latency issues. This refers to the delay or time lapse that occurs between you initiating a command and receiving the response. With Fredd there’s no more buffering and lagging – just pure broadband brilliance!
