What is Fibre Broadband?
It means that more of the journey a broadband signal takes to get to your home is through a fibre-optic cable as opposed to a copper one. That’s why this kind of broadband is also known as fibre-optic broadband.
There are a few ways a fibre broadband connection can reach your house but the most common way is known as FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) which is when the signal comes through a fibre cable to the local green cabinet you see on the street and then through non-fibre wires to your home. It is possible to get fibre cables even closer to your house – which is known as FTTP (fibre to the property) - but this isn’t very common so it’s generally more expensive.
