Full fibre

Go to solution

What is full fibre? I have been offered a free upgrade from Halo3+ but the email doesn't tell me what the upgrade will give in terms of speed...

Full fibre also known as fibre to the premises (FTTP) or fibre to the home (FTTH) means the fibreoptic connection runs direct to your home, previous technology such as fibre to the cab (FTTC) means the fibre ends at the cabinet, the remaing leg typically runs on copper or aluminum, over distance the speed degrades and can be slow if you're far away.

FTTP is typically more reliable, it's a newer network and less prone to outages but with anything in life, things can go wrong and it's not 100% fault free

Halo3+ will see you get a minimum of 80 mbps down and 20 mbps upload, faster Halo 3+ package exist all the way up to FF900
