What Are the Different Types of Telecom Services?

People are heartily welcoming of digitalisation, which has become highly fashionable up-to-date. For a business, especially in the customer service sector, telecom services can aid in the development and growth; all with the latest technologies. Whether this is through voice, video, telephone, internet or communication services. Telecommunications services are here to ensure a strong connection and fast speeds are delivered throughout the working day.


There are many different types of telecom services. Find out a few of the most common sorts and see how we can help you today! 



Plain Old Telephone Service Lines (POTS) is also known as landlines. However, though they were popular, especially in the 90s, technology has since advanced and many households or businesses do not have them. 


As they have less bandwidth than other newer technologies, they are no longer allowed; as the bandwidth only carries the voice data at a pace of 52 kilobits per second.


Metro Ethernet

In comparison to a POTS line, a metro ethernet connection offers more capacity and capability. The higher bandwidth and functionality are primarily due to telecom services using fibre cables instead of typical copper wires. These networks can transmit data at speeds of up to 3 Gigabytes per second. Compared to POTS, this is a massive leap.


Metro Ethernet is mostly used by small and medium-sized businesses because of its faster speeds and wider bandwidth. This can be a useful tool for data transfer and communication across offices. Read our previous blog here to see how telecoms can benefit your small business.


Optical Telecommunications Service 

Now for the grandfather of the telecom industry. Optical telecom services, perhaps the most traditional sort of telecom transmission, is the framework that started it all. 


Optical communications services are the same as fibre-optic communication. It relies on the conversion of data into light-projecting beams, which are then transferred to fibre-optic lines and used with a more traditional association known as infrared.


T1 Lines

In busy working environments, quick computer communications and data transfer is always required to assist in efficiency. If you are dealing with a customer or client, poor voice quality can affect their experience and result in negative reviews. And that’s where T1 lines can help.


T1 lines are an ideal alternative for computer communications as they have a larger bandwidth than POTS lines. They transmit data signals at a rate of 1.54 megabits per second and are a viable solution for faster and safer data transmission. 


Mobile Telecom Services

Mobile communication is the most advanced and well-established type of telecom service. It has taken the world by storm, with its one-of-a-kind and mind-blowing characteristics. 


With the arrival of the 5G network, and telecommunications service providers focusing on its expansion, everything else has seemed to be pushed aside. However, mobile telecom services include the revenue from mobile data usage and all business mobile or telephone calls. Many businesses have begun incorporating the use of mobiles into the working environment, which can be more convenient than having business phone systems.
