Fibre-optic cables,using very thin glass or plastic material, enable the fastest ever connection speeds (equal to the speed of light) over your broadband line. The maximum speeds can vary depending on the fibre optic broadband technology used. Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) broadband which reaches the street cabinet via fibre cables and then users’ premises via copper wires can offer download speeds around 40Mbps. Fibre to the Home / Premise (FTTH or FTTP) broadband will use fibre for the entire installation of the line, right from the exchange up to the users’premises. This type of connections can offer speeds 100Mbps or above.
