How contention ratios affect you
Contention is a technical term you may have heard in relation to broadband. We liken it to the difference between first class and economy on flights. It’s basically the ratio of active internet users to the amount of available bandwidth resources. If an ISP tries to assign too many people to a certain amount of bandwidth it can result in a very noticeable degradation of performance. This unfortunately is a common scenario – but not at Lightning Broadband. We assign resources based on maximizing our customers’ internet experience, not our profit margins.
As a local business we believe in supporting other local businesses as a shared community.
