What is fibre?
‘Fibre’ refers to a fibre-optic connection that is replacing old copper phone lines. It sends more data at higher speeds than even the fastest connection on a copper line.
Fibre lets people run more devices in their home and access all the online services they need, such as movies, music and gaming.
If your home has a number of devices like smart phones, tablets, PCs, Smart TVs or gaming consoles, you need the speed and bandwidth of fibre (as copper ADSL and VDSL internet connections can get congested as more devices are added to the same connection, and used at the same time).
Comparatively, with a fibre connection you won’t see a drop-in speed or function caused by running several devices at the same time.
Fibre is the connection to get the most from the internet now and to be ready for the next generation of services. With Nova you can get Fibre for the same cost as ADSL or VDSL. We also offer Fibre Boost for even faster speeds.
