What is fibre optic broadband?

Fibre optic broadband gives you access to significantly greater speeds than traditional internet connections, thanks to the type of cable used. In the past, all internet connections were based on ADSL - they ran on the copper wires used for phone lines. The problem with these lines was that the further from the exchange your house happened to be, the slower the connection would become. This is still true to a degree with fibre optic broadband, but the dedicated cabling used vastly reduces the slow down caused by these additional distances.

A few years ago broadband speeds were so slow that downloading an album would take up to an hour. Downloading that same album right now would take less than a minute with fibre optic broadband. As with any internet connection speeds can vary but with fibre broadband it's rare to see a connection drop below an average of 24Mbps.

Fibre optic broadband providers

There are plenty of providers that offer fibre optic broadband as part of their packages. Virgin Media, BT, Plusnet, Sky, TalkTalk among others all now offer fibre optic broadband which is good news for the consumer as more competition means fairer prices.
