Fibre is the newest, fastest and most exciting connectivity type out there. But there are a lot of names being thrown around. Fibre is the actual technology, which is named after the fibre optic cables that use light impulses to carry data instead of the electrical impulses transmitted on traditional ADSL copper cables.
The light bounces along thin glass fibre tubes at the speed of light, which makes it very, very fast. And since there are no copper cables, it’s also theft and weather proof. Fibre to the home (or FTTH) is the roll-out of the fibre cables to homes and small businesses.
