Welcome to the fibre optic cable era – it’s much faster and more reliable than copper cables. Also known as full fibre, with this type of connection the cable is run all the way into your home or business rather than just to the street (this is called Fibre To The Premises).
The upcoming landline switch off will necessitate you having a good broadband connection as your telephone lines, whether at the office or home will require this to work. Read our blog on the upcoming pstn switch off here.
Full fibre offers speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (1 Gbps) – that’s 10x faster than the fastest copper-based networks. This speed allows you to download a full HD movie in just a few minutes or send large files from office to office in seconds.
- Full Fibre is more reliable. Not only does it provide consistently fast speeds, but it’s also less likely to suffer faults.
- It’s more resilient. Even if an issue does arise, outages are few and far between.
- It’s more robust. Using the latest technology means it’s designed to withstand pretty much anything that gets thrown at it.
- It’s future-proofed for years to come. With symmetrical upload and download speeds that are ideal for cloud storage, video conferencing, online gaming and other activities that require high-speed internet access both ways.
Cheaper in the long run
It’s possible to provide the same amount of bandwidth at a lower cost by deploying full fibre. Full fibre costs less over time because it requires less maintenance and replacement, whereas copper-based networks must be replaced every 10 years or so.
