Full fibre broadband

What is full fibre broadband ?

Full fibre broadband, also known as FTTP (Fibre-to-the-premises) or FTTH (Fibre-to-the-home), is a type of broadband connection that uses fibre optic cables to transmit data directly to a user's premises. This means that the entire broadband connection, from the exchange to the user's router, is made up of fibre optic cables. Full fibre broadband is the future of UK Broadband and is currently being rolled out across the country.
