Does Fibre optic broadband use a phone line
Although the majority of your broadband connection would be fibre optic, the bit between your local street cabinet and your home is still the old copper phone line. That’s why line rental is almost always included in a broadband package. Virgin Media is an exception to that though, since it uses its own kind of cables.
How is Fibre connected to your house
First, they need to lay a cable from the street to your house. They then install a box (optical network terminal) inside your house which connects your home to the fibre network. Your router then plugs into this.
Do all Fibre broadband providers use the same line
Sky, TalkTalk and most other providers operate their fibre through the BT network, which launched in January 2010. While Virgin Media, who took over NTL Telewest in March 2006, use their own fibre broadband network, which they do not have to share.
Does Fibre broadband make a difference
It’s actually extremely simple – standard broadband (ADSL) uses existing copper phone lines for transferring data, while fibre uses a newer network of high-speed fibre optic cables that are better able to deliver high-speed data across greater distances, resulting in much faster download speeds for fibre packages.
Is Fibre better than ADSL
Fibre broadband is better, faster and more reliable than standard ADSL internet and is delivered to homes and businesses through fibre optic cables. Most FTTC fibre connections offer average speeds of around 35Mb (4MB per second) or 65Mb (8MB per second).
Is ADSL cheaper than Fibre
Telkom fibre now cheaper than ADSL. Apart from faster speeds and a more stable connection, Telkom’s FTTH service has a big advantage over ADSL and VDSL products: no forced analogue line rental. The absence of forced line rental means that Telkom’s FTTH lines are more affordable than ADSL services.

Is fiber better than broadband
Like any Internet service, fiber optic Internet download speeds depend on your connection. Not all fiber services are created equal, much like broadband. Fiber is not distance sensitive like copper based services, but speeds can vary. Fiber is faster than average broadband speeds in the USA.
Is Fibre broadband worth
Fibre broadband can make surfing the web much faster, but is it worth the extra cost? However, if you’re not enjoying these services due to slow internet speeds, you could consider upgrading to fibre broadband.
Is BT Fibre broadband any good
Fibre broadband is ideal for large homes that go online a lot. With BT Unlimited Superfast Fibre 1 (previously known as BT Infinity 1), with its 50Mbps download speed, you can share your broadband around dozens of devices without any problems. The only other provider who offers 50Mbps is Virgin Media.
