In simple terms, Fibre internet is basically optic Fibre cables buried under the ground and laid to connect homes and businesses with the internet. They call it Fibre optics because the technology used is actually thing glass fibres that use light instead of electricity to carry digital signals and data and virtually unlimited speeds. It is the most advanced, stable and super-fast connection currently available to anyone who wants super fast, reliable internet connection.

Yet, it is the only technology with enough bandwidth to handle projected demands during the next decade reliably and cost-effectively. It is a cost-effective, reliable solutions to homes all over the world. It is one of the few technologies that are virtually unlimited in bandwidth meaning, it can’t run out and can be supplied to homes and businesses indefinitely.

There are many benefits to having home Fibre installed instead of other connectivity solutions. Fibre is a lot faster than any other kind of connection because the technology uses light instead of electricity to transfer data. It is faster than even the highest speed copper internet connection, with speeds ranging from a 10 Mbps to 1000 Mbps (1Gbps). In addition to faster and more efficient connection, signal degradation is also reduced in Fibre optics when compared to other connection sources, making your connection more secure and free of interruptions.
Home Fibre is much more reliable than all of the other “fast” internet solutions. It is far less affected by environmental challenges that can affect the performance of other solutions like copper. Fibre can thrive in all conditions, including being submerged or left in the sun. It is also reliable due to the fact that it remains unaffected by electromagnetic and radio frequencies, making your connection stronger. Compared to other connectivity solutions like copper, Fibre optics are not at risk of being stolen either.
In addition to the above, there are no secondary costs when it comes to installing Fibre. After the initial installation fee and excluding your monthly data fee, there are no other costs involved. Fibre is already widely available in South Africa. Although only a certain amount of neighbourhoods have received Fibre optic cables, plans are in place to keep expanding as the demand for Fibre to the home rises.
Fibre to the home connection also allows you to bundle all of your data requirements or services. If you would like to receive telephone, video, audio and television digital data streaming, one simple Fibre connection can connect you to all of the above. This is a much more cost-effective and simpler way of staying connected.
Fibre is also very secure as it does not radiate signals and is therefore very difficult to tap into or hack. This ensures additional security for your data. If the cable is tapped, it will leak light, causing the entire system to fail.
So, in short, a Fibre to the home solution is not only your fastest, most convenient, safest and most secure way to connect to the internet, but it’s also cost-effective and can potentially save you money over time.
