What is Fibre Internet?
Fibre internet, also known as fibre-optic internet, is the latest innovation in internet technology. Unlike traditional copper-wire networks, fibre internet uses fibre-optic cables to transmit data. These cables are made of glass or plastic and use light to carry information at incredibly high speeds. This means that fibre internet can deliver faster and more reliable internet speeds than traditional networks. Best of all, your speed stays consistent, day or night!
Why is Fibre Internet Important?
Fibre internet is a game-changer for businesses and households alike. With faster speeds and more reliable connections, fibre internet makes it possible for users to stream high-definition videos, play online games, and work remotely without any interruptions. Fibre internet also supports multiple devices and users simultaneously, making it ideal for households with multiple users or businesses with multiple employees.

Fibre to the Home FAQs
A. Fibre internet uses strands of glass or plastic to transfer data through pulses of light. This technology allows fibre internet to provide users with upload and download speeds of up to about 1Gbps. Fibre internet is currently the best type of internet, topping cable, DSL, and satellite in terms of speed and reliability. Fibre to the Home transfers your data at the ‘Speed of Light’!
With Fibre to the Home, you’ll have your own personal internet connection to your home, which is not shared with others in your neighbourhood. This means your speed will stay consistent, day or night, and no matter how many of your neighbours are online or using their devices.
A. Fibre optics provides the most robust, secure, and cost-effective solution for bringing truly high-speed internet to individual homes.
