No

What is the difference between wired and wireless broadband access?

A wired connection is what is normally referred to as an ethernet connection normally via CAT 5 cable, wireless connectivity or (wifi) as it is normally referred to will fluctuate depending on the integrity of the internal network and can be compromised by the fabric of the structure and the distance from the ONT, this can enhance with the installation of access points.

What speed do I need?

Most domestic users will not use more than 20MB for standard usage such as phones, tablets, streaming, gaming etc

How do I know what speed I am getting?

When installed the technician will carry out a speedtest by connecting a laptop via ethernet cable to the ONT and complete a test using speedtest.net app this will verify the speed being delivered to the ONT, he will also record this screen test for Lazer records, we can also test remotely the speed being delivered.

Starting bundle starts at 100Mb, however, we also have 200Mb, 300 Mb bundles to domestic users and can offer up to 1Gb for business users

Why does my Internet connection seem slower at some times of the day than others?

Lazer delivers what is contracted within your bundle, the connection may appear to be slower at peak times whenever there is a lot of internal users. However, this will most likely occur through wi-fi and not directly through the ONT. Your wifi coverage will depend on other factors such as the size of the property, location of the ONT and indeed the fabric of the internal walls and ceilings.
