What is ‘full-fibre’ broadband?

Full-fibre broadband is only available to around 2% of UK homes, so it’s pretty rare.

The distinction between ‘fibre broadband’ and ‘full fibre broadband’ came about because, as of 2017, broadband providers are allowed to sell fibre broadband that is acutally made up of part-copper (much slower) and part-fibre cables.

Full-fibre is what it sounds like: a type of broadband connection that is fully made up of fibre cables and includes none of the slower copper.

The law may change after 2017 as the government is consulting on whether to ban broadband providers from selling packages labelled as ‘fibre’ that are not full-fibre.
