A. Fibre to the Home uses glass fibre to carry communications signals. It replaces existing copper infrastructure, such as telephone wires and TV cable, with a faster, more reliable method of delivering internet, TV, and phone services.
A. Fibre optics provides the most robust, secure, and cost-effective solution for bringing truly high-speed internet to individual homes. It can manage significantly faster internet speeds over greater distances, and it is not subject to transmission interference like copper, coaxial cable, and wireless. Fibre optics offers more transmission security, requires less maintenance, and has a significantly longer lifespan than other technologies.
