What is full-fibre broadband?
There are three main types of broadband connection that link the local telephone exchange to your home or office:
- ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line) uses copper cables to a street-level cabinet or junction box and on to the house
- FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) uses a faster fibre optic cable to the cabinet, but then copper cable from there to the house
- FTTP (fibre to the premises) uses a fibre optic cable to connect to households without using any copper cable
