What is fibre broadband?

At the moment you probably have a copper telephone wire bringing your phone and broadband into your home or business.  Broadband delivered through a copper wire means you may get patchy and sometimes very poor coverage, especially if you live a long way from the green cabinet box.  In comparison, full fibre means a fibre cable all the way into your house which will give you the fastest and most reliable broadband on offer.  Many internet companies may already advertise a broadband package as fibre; however this is most likely to only be a fibre cable to the cabinet and a copper wire to your house/business.
