What is contention ratio?

If you’ve ever read about internet speeds, you may have come across the term “contention ratio”. Contention ratio refers to the number of users sharing the same data capacity. In other words, it refers to the number of people who have to contend with each other in terms of bandwidth. When it comes to contention ratio, lower is better.

If you feel like the previous paragraph was just tech jargon that you do not understand, let us explain some more.

Think of your internet connection as a highway. At any given time, you are not the only “driver” on the highway, as you have to share it with other “road users”. When there are more users, traffic gets progressively more congested, leading to an overall slower speed for each individual “driver”. If you leave work during times of peak traffic, it’ll take you longer to get home – as anyone that uses the N1 in Johannesburg to commute will confirm. Leaving when traffic is not at its peak will allow you to travel home at higher speed, simply because the road is open and there are fewer people that you have to share the limited amount of lanes with.

Contention ratio works on the same principle. A greater amount of users means that the contention ratio for users that are on the same data capacity is higher, leading to slower connection speeds. A smaller amount of users means that the contention ratio is lower and that connection speeds are, consequently, higher. But what does all of this have to do with fibre?
