Fibre broadband is the next generation of broadband - faster, more reliable and uses a different technology. Traditional ADSL broadband is delivered via copper telephone lines, whereas fibre broadband commonly uses fibre optic cable to link between the customer and the exchange. Fibre broadband can be delivered as either Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) or Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP).
