What is Fibre Internet?
 
Fiber” refers to. the thin glass wires inside the larger protective cable. “Optic” refers to the way the type of data transferred – light signals. So, an Internet connection using fiber optic cables is an Internet connection in which data is delivered in light signals via small, flexible glass wires.
 
How does Fibre work?
 
Fibre is a bundle of fibre optic threads made of pure glass each about the diameter of a human hair. It uses light instead of electricity to carry a digital data signal. Fibre is able to transmit information at virtually unlimited speed and capacity, delivering superfast speeds.
 
How long does it take to install Fibre Internet?
 
The waiting period can be anything from 1-3 weeks and the physical installation will take between 2-4 hours depending on the complexity of the installation. A Consumer Premises Equipment device (CPE) will be installed in your home. Please note that their are outlying cases where the installation can take much longer.
 
How fast Fibre internet?
 
LTE at Home can achieve speeds of up to 50Mbps. It's not quite as fast as Fibre, and because it's airborne, a little more prone to external factors such as bad weather playing a part in the speeds you get. That said, it's still worlds faster than ADSL and far more reliable.
