Online Backup is set to benefit from an improvement in a key area of internet use which is broadband. Fibre optic broadband is an exciting new phenomenon sweeping across the country, and it is this which could massively benefit the users of online backup. For example with some online backup vendors it can take a long time to back up big files like movies or albums, but with fibre optic broadband this could soon be a thing of the past. Fibre Optic broadband works by refracting light signals through a wire, instead of using the copper wire we are used to now, however all you need to know is that it will make internet usage quicker and therefore online backup will be quicker. Online Backup could be made 4x faster with the help of fibre optic broadband, as well as the general internet browsing experience. At the moment fibre optic facilities are only available in some parts of the country however it is likely that fibre optic broadband will spread quickly this year and everyone will be able to benefit from faster online backup. It is likely that this will lead to even more online backup success which is good news for everybody.
