Phone carried over fibre is the same user experience, but carried over fiber optics. These signals are then converted into a traditional signal at junctions to existing phone lines. Fiber optics offers a higher rate of signal travel and allows your home to be reliant on only the most modern cables, which won't corrode or short circuit.

Sending signals at close to the speed of light, fibre optic cables are the gold standard of infrastructure. Used primarily for intercontinental undersea cables, fibre optics are the fastest method of communication known today.

What is Fibre To The Home?

Fibre to the Home uses glass fibre to carry communications signals. It replaces existing copper infrastructure, such as telephone wires and TV cable, with a faster, more reliable method of delivering internet, digital TV, and phone services.

Fibre uses light instead of electricity to carry signals, and since light travels so quickly, Fibre to the Home can carry an enormous number of signals to and from your home at previously unheard of speeds. Like water and electricity, a fast connection is an essential utility. Without it, it’s almost impossible to keep up.

Why Fibre To The Home?

What do you do online? Email family & friends, share photos, shop, and blog? Or maybe you watch movies, listen to music, or catch up on your favourite TV show. Or do you do all of the above and keep the world updated on your life with all your social media accounts?

It’s hard to believe that in 2004, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram didn’t exist. Even iTunes was new! But now, according to the Canadian Internet Registration Authority, “Canadians spend more time online than anybody else in the world.” We are a wired nation in a wired world with a wired future. Without a good internet connection, you’re going to be left behind.
