Briant Broadband And CityFibre Bring Full Fibre To Worthing

full fibre, fibre installation, cityfibre, fibre broadband, broadband internet, internet service provider, By 2025 the UK should be well into the process of withdrawing copper cables for broadband and phone lines, having replaced a projected minimum 85% with fibre optic cable instead.

The plan is to swap from outdated copper phone lines to gigabit fibre technology with the least interruption possible, so if your current cable comes under the ground that’s where the new line will go. Similarly, if your phone or broadband cable comes via a telegraph pole, that’s how your new fibre connection will be made.

Many homes are already connected to Full Fibre technology. Many others are connected to Fibre to the Cabinet, a broadband system which takes advantage of both copper and fibre to quickly and cheaply give better (but not gigabit broadband) internet to homes and business.

Briant Broadband are working closely with CityFibre to make Full Fibre available to as many people in Adur and Worthing as possible. CityFibre are one of the national infrastructure providers who’ve been retained to make the 2025 broadband rollout a reality. Among others, they are responsible for installing millions of kilometres of fibre optic cable from data centres through exchanges to streets throughout the country. Once it’s in place it’s up to companies such as broadband ISPs like Briant Broadband to connect the end of the fibre filament to a router in your home so you can enjoy up to 900 Mbps with complete reliability.

Full Fibre, FTTP, FTTH and FTTC. What Is Going On!?

fibre, fibre optic, fibre optic cable, FTTP, FTTH, FTTC, Full Fibre, Fibre Broadband, broadband, fast fibre, If you’re shopping around for a new broadband internet provider because your old one was too expensive or unreliable you’ve probably been introduced to some new terms which we shall attempt to explain.

You’ll no doubt have heard of FTTC, FTTP and FTTH. The good news is that Full Fibre, FTTP and FTTH are exactly the same thing. They stand for ‘Fibre To The Property’ and ‘Fibre To the Home’ so essentially they both mean that the fibre connection goes all the way from your local exchange down your street, across your garden, through the wall and into your router. Once its there it can deliver up to 900 Mbps which can then be distributed via Wi-Fi or an ethernet cable directly to a laptop or desktop machine, Smart devices and TV.

So what is FTTC?

FTTC is ‘Fibre To The Cabinet’. The cabinet in question is the green phone cabinet you probably have at the end of your street. Sometimes you’ll see a phone engineer sitting in front of one deftly knitting among a bird’s nest of cables and you wonder how they can possibly make any sense of the jumble of wires in front of them. So the fibre goes from the exchange, down your street, but instead of going across your garden and into your wall, it stops at this cabinet and gets connected to your copper phone line instead. Because the copper wire is already installed right up the phone socket in your home it’s much cheaper to install and far less disruptive as there is much less digging of residential streets involved. Dynamic Line Management takes care of ensuring that your connection remains, error free, fast and stable automatically. Read more

Why are some Full Fibre completions slower than others?

broadband installation, CityFibre, broadband internet, internet, broadband, Worthing, Sussex,All over the country broadband infrastructure companies such as CityFibre are working to get full fibre broadband installed. There is a target to get up to 75% of all homes and businesses connected by 2026 and more than 99% connected by 2030. While some broadband ISPs are connecting almost as soon as the fibre is in the ground, some are taking considerably longer. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why.

People throughout the UK are starting to realise that simply because the infrastructure in in situ, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to be connected immediately. In fact they put up with the disruption of having their street dug up, but they still don’t know when they’re going to be finally connected to Fibre Fast broadband.

Disillusionment follows. You see the ads for Superfast and Ultrafast broadband on the TV and on social media, you know that the fibre optic line is right there, but there doesn’t seem to be anyone willing to connect those last few metres of cable to your router. Read more
