Who said you can't speed?

People have been talking about Broadband changing the way we live, work and play for a long time. We can go online to purchase goods and services, watch movies and TV shows, download music, socialise, play games and work remotely.

This explosion in demand can cause a bottleneck in people’s Broadband services, especially when several people in the same household want to use the Internet all at the same time. The same applies to people who run their own businesses; people who work from home; as well as those who travel to and from the office daily.

Today’s Broadband simply isn’t fast enough for any of them. BT’s old copper Broadband simply can’t cope with the speed demand…

Full Fibre Broadband is the Future

Full Fibre  Broadband is about everything you’ll ever need or want to do online. One person could be watching a HD movie or TV programme, while another is engrossed in a sporting event and yet another is watching live streaming video.

You can look forward to downloading:

  • Individual music tracks in a few seconds.
  • Entire albums in less than a minute.
  • HD programmes start streaming in seconds.
  • Download feature length HD movies in 5 – 10 minutes.

Similarly, uploading will be much faster than today’s Broadband. You’ll be able to:

  • Post video clips to social networking sites faster.
  • Immerse yourself in the reality of HD video calling with friends and family.
  • Enjoy interactive HD gaming to the full.

Is Full Fibre That Much Faster Than ADSL or VDSL (copper)?

Yes and crucially it reaches the actual advertised speeds which ADSL or VDSL rarely do.

The problem with DSL is that the signals run over copper wire. Signals over copper degrade over distance, meaning customers suffer if they’re a long way from the BT exchange.

Full Fibre Broadband doesn’t suffer anywhere near as badly from signal loss, with data carried at full speed until it reaches the cabinet close to the customer’s house. It is then carried on co-axial cable into the customer’s home.

Co-axial cable barely suffers from signal loss over these short distances – so these really are “ultrafast” services.

What’s the Difference Between WightFibre’s Full Fibre and BT’s Fibre Service?

Where BT Fibre service is available, BT relies on a fibre connection to the cabinet and then VDSL signals to the home. These VDSL signals run over copper wires. Since VDSL signals degrade even more quickly than ADSL, even the short distance between cabinets and a customer’s home can cause a sharp drop-off in speed.

WightFibre thinks BT’s Infinity is an inferior product and not really fibre at all…

WightFibre full-fibre broadband uses this fibre optic cabling all the way from the exchange into your home. This compares to the BT Openreach network used by BT, Sky, TalkTalk and others which uses fibre to the cabinet but then copper twisted pair from the cabinet to the home.
