Optic fibre internet uses cutting edge technology. Information is sent via small, flexible strands of glass that transmit light. This allows data to be sent faster over greater distances.
It is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fibre. It is delivered through thin glass pipes known as fibre optic cables, using waves of light. This technology is generally regarded as the successor to DSL broadband, which is delivered over the copper telephone network. DSL broadband speeds are limited to around 24 Mbps.
Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) and Fibre to the home (FTTH) are the two main methods of fibre broadband deployment in the UK. Current fibre services on the market offer speeds ranging from 20 Mbps to 100 Mbps, with faster services being trialled.
