With speeds up to four times faster than traditional copper-wired broadband, there are a range of broadband speeds to suit different budgets and lifestyle needs. Fibre optic cables have the ability to transmit data as fast as 1000 Megabits per second (mbps) versus 200 mbps that is available with traditional broadband.
While traditional copper services are more prone to faults (such as those brought on by inclement weather), this isn’t an issue for fibre-based services.
Switching to a significantly faster fibre-based broadband service is particularly useful for high bandwidth users e.g. if you stream online content from providers such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer etc., play online games, upload or download large files, make video calls or have a number of smart devices/users in your household.
With fibre broadband you can choose to keep or do away with your existing landline number as it is not required to connect your home to fibre. You can keep your landline number as an additional service if you prefer to.
