I have fibreoptic broadband at home. The way it works for me is that the fibre optic line is from the exchange to a junction box 2 roads away then copper to my house. Ths still makes the connection 38Mb/s rather than the 10Mb/s I was getting before I switched to fibre. It makes things like the iPlayer through the TV super smooth and good quality.
The less copper wire from the exchange the better as copper looses Mb/s the longer the cable is, where fibreoptic doesnt. (think national grid having to put thousands of volts through the cables between pilons because so much is lost.
I think im right??
