Fibre broadband is the fastest and most secure widely available form of internet communications. Fibre optics essentially mean light passed through a cable to deliver communications, in this cast fast broadband.
This is in contrast to standard copper wires (e.g. an ADSL connection) used since the early days of the internet – wires which have since proved to be inadequate when it comes to supporting masses of bandwidth traffic.
In fibre broadband, the internet signal is sent down a transparent fibre made of glass which transmits information at the speed of light, far faster than typical copper wires.
As such, fibre is particularly suitable (and represents the trusted soluition) for heavy bandwidth users. Do you stream a lot of videos? Do you play games online? Do you download and upload plenty of files? Supanet Fibre is the best UK internet deal for you. Even if you are a light user, Supanet Fibre represents a noticeable upgrade!
Fibre-to-the-Cabinet broadband (FTTC) explained
FTTC stands for Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) which means that the fibre optic cable connects the telephone exchange with a street cabinet local to you.
The street cabinet then connects to your home via standard copper cable which uses VDSL or a similar upgraded technology designed to result in very fast speeds over short distances.
