How to get Full Fibre Broadband For Your Home

full fibre full fibre installation, fibre broadband, broadband, Full Fibre Broadband is being rolled out throughout the country, and upwards of 85% of homes and businesses should be able to get Full Fibre by 2025. In the meantime more and more homes are being connected, but how do you make sure you’re getting the fastest broadband internet?

First Of All, What Is Full Fibre?

Full Fibre is also called FTTP or FTTH which stands for Fibre To The Property/Premises of Fibre To The Home. What it means is that there is an uninterrupted fibre optic connection from your router to the datacentres which sit at the heart of the World Wide Web. Because copper phone lines are limited to the amount of data they are able to relay any stage of the journey from or to the servers from your router which is over copper phone lines is going to be slower, slowing the entire process. Full Fibre means that your broadband internet service provider is able to give you speeds up to 900 Mbps because there is never a stage at which the signal is slowed down.

How Do You Go About Getting Fibre To The Property?

You can either call your broadband internet service provider directly, or check coverage by visiting their website. Once you input your postcode you’ll be told if FTTP is available at your address. If you can’t get Full Fibre now your service provider should be able to give you a good idea of when it will be available in your area, or if there are any other options they offer.

If you don’t live in a built up area you might be able to request connection under the Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme. If you and your neighbours get together and decide that you want Full Fibre connection you can use this scheme to expedite the process and get connected sooner rather than later.

If You Cant Get Full FTTP

If you can’t get FTTP to your property yet, and your neighbours are uninterested, or there are other reasons why you can’t get Full Fibre to your property there are other options. Copper phone lines, the technology we’ve been using up until now, have a limited amount of data they can deliver at any one time. For many people broadband speeds of 50 Mbps were standard, but it will slow down considerably the further you live from the telephone exchange or data centre your phone line is connected to. A handy solution to these slow speeds is Wireless broadband. Instead of being connected via a cable of any type you will have a receiver attached to your property where it can receive a signal from a nearby transmitter. Wireless broadband can deliver from 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps, which is far faster than the maximum most phone line delivery systems can deliver.
