What is fibre broadband?

Fibre broadband is one of the most important advances in broadband technology. It gives users higher download and upload speeds than traditional fixed-line broadband, and can transform what you’re able to do online.

So, what is it, why do you need it, how does it work, and can you get it? Our guide explains the basics of fibre optic broadband so you’ll be much more up to speed when you decide to go for it.

How it works

Fibre broadband takes its name from the cables it uses to transmit data. Fibre optic cables contain up to 1,000 individual fibres of silica glass, each approximately the thickness of a human hair.

Now, here's the science bit. Each fibre's signal (which is really just light) is always reflected back to the fibre's centre, meaning there's very little reduction in speed, regardless of distance or even corners. So to keep sci-fi fans happy, fibre customers are getting their broadband at almost the speed of light. Not quite warp speed, Star Trek lovers, but pretty close.

In the real world this means your household can download, stream, VoIP-call or just plain old browse, much more reliably and without the risk of the connection grinding to a halt.

Types of fibre broadband

If you’re looking for a fibre optic connection, you’ll encounter two different types: fibre to the premises (FTTP) and fibre to the cabinet (FTTC). These two delivery methods differ slightly, and produce different results.

Fibre to the premises (FTTP)

The best option in terms of speed is fibre to the premises (FTTP). With FTTP, broadband is carried on a fibre optic cable from your nearest telephone exchange to a box most often found on an external wall of your home or business.

The final stage from the box to inside your home or workplace then uses copper cabling, but because this is proportionally such a small part of the journey, FTTP broadband offers the fastest connection.

Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC)

By far the most common connection is fibre to the cabinet (FTTC), where fibre optic cables reach your local telecoms cabinet before your broadband travels the remaining distance to your house on copper cabling.

Obviously this differs from property to property, but speed is influenced by how close your cabinet is to your home – an unmarked green box on a street near you is most likely your local telecoms cabinet.

How to choose a fibre broadband deal

The sheer number of speeds, bundles, providers, home phones and optional extras make the ever-changing UK broadband market somewhat confusing. While it’s fair to say that if you take the pot luck approach, chances are you’ll come out happy, you’ll never know how much happier you could have been had you put aside ten minutes of your time to read this section on how to choose.

Further down this page, you’ll find a lot more in-depth stuff about individual providers – who’s best for what and so forth – but in terms of the information you actually need, this section is the only one that matters. So without further ado…

1. Check what you can get in your postcode

This point is somewhat chicken and egg: To know what you should get, you first have to know what you can get. No point getting all excited about 200Mbps of Virgin VIVID if there’s no Virgin cabling running outside your property.

By the same token, putting your postcode into the box above takes you away from this page, onto one that at first might seem pretty determined to overwhelm you with choice – choice that, at this stage, since you have not yet discovered the ins and outs of how to choose, might not make a lot of sense to you.

To help with what follows, then, punch in your postcode and look for just two things: Can you get Virgin Media broadband, and can you get BT Infinity broadband. Don’t worry if you’re not interested in either – whether you can get either, both or none of these only serves to demonstrate what type of cabling you have running past your house (Virgin has its own network and everyone else operates on BT’s). Jot down which are available then jump back to this page to continue reading.

2. How to find out what speed you need

Choosing a speed will take you a big step closer to choosing a provider, because certain speeds are only available from certain providers. It might not get you all that way there, but it will narrow things down a bit. Choosing the right speed will also help ensure you don’t choose a fibre package with either less or more than you need.

Gather your household together and establish the sort of things each household member uses the internet for. Ensure they include everything from updating apps on their phone, to videogame updates to streaming movies and using social media.

Streaming, gaming and downloading are the highest-usage activities, especially streaming in high definition (HD), while surfing the internet and using social media are the lowest. Try to categorise each household member, including yourself, into light, moderate and heavy.

This chart offers a clear idea of which speed your household should be thinking of going for. Most of us with more than two or three people in our households will have discovered that it’s a bit of a hotchpotch when it comes to understanding the needs of each individual.

The temptation, then, is to weight things more towards the heavy users ‘just in case’. Resist that temptation. Broadband providers love it when you upgrade your speed – you can usually do it online and your new speed will be available within a few hours, often less. However, providers throw a lot of barriers your way if you want to downgrade. No provider allows you to do this online, many will put a lot of energy into dissuading you, and some broadband deals won’t let you do it at all. Remember: Get the minimum, upgrade if you have to.

Digging into the details, you might have already noticed that upload speeds are in all cases a mere fraction of the available download speed. While download speed determines how long it takes data to get from the internet to your devices, upload speed determines how long it takes you to send data to the internet.

There are some tasks for which you might need a good upload speed. If you rely on cloud computing to store all your personal files, run a home office, or regularly broadcast live video to the likes of Twitch. If all that sounds foreign to you, however, you can forget upload speeds exist. Which is why they’re so slow in comparison to download speeds: There are a lot less uses for upload and they tend to be quite specialist.

Interesting picture, isn’t it? The lower your required speed the greater the choice still available to you. The more you need, however, the easier it becomes. Notice how, at the very top end, Virgin Media stands alone.

Time to take a look at the notes you made in step one. If you can get BT Infinity, you can get fibre from any provider who offers it except Virgin Media and the Post Office (which only offers non-fibre ADSL broadband). If you can get Virgin Media either instead of or as well as BT Infinity, then the choice becomes a little harder.

Fret not. The purpose of taking you through this is not so you can make a choice here and now, it’s so you have a keener idea of what you’re looking at when you begin comparing deals. Stick with us, we’re nearly there.
