‘Fibre’ is shorthand for fibre optic cabling. A fibre optic cable consists of tiny tubes, each tube as thick as a human hair.
They are reflective on the inside and transfer information by sending flashes of light that is interpreted as data. It’s much more reliable and very quick compared to other technologies such as copper.
Removing copper cabling and providing end-to-end fibre connectivity ensures consistency of performance and enables services to be introduced and expanded without the need for any physical upgrades to the fibre that connects to your household or business premises.
Fibre connectivity ensures that networking speeds are maintained from the internet all the way to your premises with no loss of performance. It also increases capacity, so your connection can run multiple devices and online services at the same time, with no drop in performance.
