Internet Connections – What Is Fibre Optic?

This article is going to clarify exactly what fibre optic broadband is, an internet connection that is pretty new to the world. We all see that it’s fast, however other than that we don’t know a great deal about this new connection.

Did you know a fibre optic cable is in fact thinner than a single human hair? At extremely high speeds, virtual information is transferred via plastic or glass cables. Now are you ready for some technical information?

We thought we were the bee’s knees when we first had ADSL broadband. Before that we had to dial up to access the internet. The internet landscape has now been changed forever now that fibre optic broadband has been introduced.

There is a fast and optimistic future for the internet because of fibre optic broadband. Faster internet speeds were something we could only dream of years ago. By the end of the year, it is estimated that broadband speeds will be tripled. This is up from the current maximum speed of 100Mbps and the maximum speed of 24Mbps on an ADSL connection.

Some people have said there is no demand for fibre optic broadband. Others have said that fast internet speeds are not suitable for smartphones and other handsets. So this is when the real debate begins.

Fibre optic broadband is a great choice for people who like to watch TV and films on download music online. The only disadvantage of the connection is that it is now as low-priced as standard ADSL broadband.
