How does fibre optic broadband work?

Fibre broadband uses fibre optic cables, which are run underground, to deliver superfast broadband to homes and businesses. These fibre optic cables transmit data faster, hence the boost in broadband speed. There are a two main types of Fibre broadband connections:

  1. Fibre-to the-Home (FTTH)/ Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) is the fastest type of fibre connection as it delivers fibre directly into your home via fibre-optic cables giving speeds of up to 1,000Mbps.

  2. Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) is more common throughout Ireland. It delivers the fibre connection via fibre optic cables to your nearest cabinet or exchange and then the connection from here to your home is delivered via older copper cables which do not deliver speeds as fast making FTTC connections slower than ‘full fibre’. Providers advertise ‘up to’ speeds, but the actual speed you get will depend on whether or not you have a FTTH or FTTC connection, and - if you have FTTC - your distance from the exchange.
