How to get super-fast broadband without phone line rental

When looking for a new broadband provider, it is easy to assume that this would also include phone line rental within the fee, but this isn’t necessary with the most modern and up-to-date broadband providers.

Wireless fibre technology can be used to take high-speed fibre-optic broadband, transfer it to microwave data and then transmit a secure wireless signal between distribution sites to homes and businesses without the need for a phone line or line rental.

Instead of cable, a small dish can be used to provide wireless fibre technology to anyone within a clear line of sight of the distribution points.

Most broadband packages use your phone line to deliver broadband, however, some internet providers give you the option so you can choose to have a phone line as an add on if you require this or you can use their VOIP system.

What is a VOIP system?

VoIP is also known as internet telephony which is a way of making phone calls that, believe it or not, doesn’t use a phone line.

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol which means phone calls that are made through the internet, rather than through a regular landline or a mobile network.

A VoIP system works by taking your analogue voice signals, converting them into digital signals, then sending them as data over your broadband line.

It’s a very useful way of making calls – for a start, once it’s set up it’s a lot cheaper than using normal phone lines. It means that, depending on your setup, you may not have to pay for your phone calls based on distance, which country you’re calling, or how much time you spend chatting.

Due to modern and advanced technology, with Wave Internet, compared to traditional providers there is no phone line needed and no overseas call centres too!

Whether you are looking for Residential or Business solutions, Wave Internet can help you to get superfast broadband without line rental!

How to check your broadband speed

Are you actually getting the speeds you were promised?

Are you making the most of your broadband speed and checking this regularly? If not, you could be missing out on the super-fast, reliable broadband, that you were promised. You are not alone, many providers promise unrealistic speeds to draw you in, but due to the way their delivery their internet, often from old and tired exchanges, this is never going to be the speed you actually get!

When you buy wifi services from an internet service provider they are responsible for the service delivered to the router at your premises and it’s worth noting that if some providers offer ‘up’ to a certain speed, this can often be the best-case scenario.

Broadband speeds can be reduced by many different factors including;

  • The distance from the exchange

  • The quality of the wiring

  • The quality of the router

  • The time of day – You may experience that you get faster speeds late at night than during the day as fewer people will be contending for the available bandwidth.

Speed Up Slow WIFI

What’s the best way to test your speed?

For the best results, you could try the following online software including: 

Firstly, to do a basic test you can go to any broadband speed checker and run the test yourself in a browser. In most cases the results may be good enough but for a more accurate result you must turn off your PC or laptop’s wifi and connect it to the router using an ethernet cable.

If you turn off any other devices that are using the connection, such as TVs, tablet devices, smartphones and restart your router, you may after a few minutes restart your PC and close down as many programs as possible, including any anti-virus software.

Once you have done this you will need to open a clean browser and follow a bookmark to your chosen broadband speed testers.

Possible issues when testing

When you run a speed test, there are a number of issues that could cause the online speed test to measure a lower speed than the actual connection, so here are some top tips for you to think about prior to testing your internet:

  • Ensure that there are no other programs or applications running in the background when running an online speed test. Another program running on your device at the same time such as a software download, could be using your Internet connection while you are trying to run a speed test.

  • Be aware that the speed test server may be highly loaded. Particularly at peak times, the servers used to provide online speed tests could be at their maximum capacity so the results may not be as accurate!

  • Try to run speed tests at different times of the day, and on different days and note the best results as generally, the highest results will be the most accurate.

  • Directly connect your device to your router by Ethernet cable. Avoid running an online speed test if connected to your router by wifi as your wifi network could be the weak link in your broadband chain so you’ll end up measuring the speed of your WiFi connection rather than your broadband connection.

  • Wifi interference issues can often cause rapid fluctuations in online speed test results. If you have no alternative than to use Wifi, then ensure that your WiFi is optimised and be located next to your wifi router when you do these tests!
