What Is Fibre Optic Broadband?

Fibre optic broadband is an exciting new type of cable broadband that runs underground as opposed to traditional ADSL broadband that runs over ageing copper telephone wires. Fibre optic broadband is much faster than ADSL broadband and can offer broadband speeds averaging 362Mbps in some areas - Making it the best option to satisfy our increasing demands for fast wireless broadband, online gaming, social networking and Internet TV like the BBC iPlayer.

How Does Fibre Optic Broadband Work?

Unlike copper telephone wires, fibre optic broadband uses underground cables made up of inner glass or plastic that carry light signals. Using these materials as opposed to copper wire means less broadband speed is lost over long distances as information is sent and retrieved at the speed of light. This means super-fast broadband speeds can still be achieved in houses that are further away from their telephone exchange.

Which Suppliers Offer Fibre Optic Broadband?

Virgin Media's top fibre package now has average broadband speeds of 362Mbps available to around 13 million homes in the UK (half of all UK homes), with prices starting from just £44 a month including phone line rental. BT is building its fibre optic broadband network (via Openreach, a BT Group business) and has so far made its Superfast Fibre Unlimited service (with average download speeds ranging from 50Mbps to 76Mbps), available to over 24 million UK homes (as at July 2018). Openreach's fibre optic network is also being used by TalkTalk , Sky and Plusnet for their new fibre optic broadband services.
