What is the contention ratio?
A. Contention ratio of say 20:1 means that in the worst case you may only get one 20th of the bandwidth that you expect. When you are a Smart Telecom customer, you don't have to worry about contention ratios because you will be connected to the Smart Telecom Next Generation network - the Smart NGN which is designed for high speed data, voice and video services. What this means for you is unrestricted high-speed Internet access all the time. Read more about Smart Telecom's Next Generation Network.
