What is Fibre?
Fibre optic cable is made from strands of pure glass as thin as human hair. These strands carry digital information over long distances using pulses of light.
Many signals or pulses can be sent down the fibre strand at one time, so in the future faster speed can be provided by illuminating different colours of light down the fibre. The strand of glass (or sometimes more than one strand) is protected by a plastic casing, which is flexible and can bend around corners. The current maximum speed that is provided over a Fibre Optic service is 100Mbits, but is not limited to this.
