How Fast is Fiber Optic

Cable broadband internet network, which is the cynosure of a great part of the advanced internet consumers in the United Kingdom that include businesses depending on intense data transfer rates, frequent downloaders of music, movies and video from the internet and ardent online gamers.

Compared to its closest rival in the context, the DSL broadband internet versions, the cable broadband offers greater data download speeds. Cable broadband networks make it possible by using fibreglass cables for transmitting information, which in their turn transmits data in the form of light signals.

Cable broadband, which is also known as fibre optic broadband is renowned for the extreme connection speeds (both download and upload) delivered by it. As a matter of fact, compared to the ADSL broadband speeds that range from 1 Mbps to 12 Mbps (ADSL 2+ broadband can deliver up to 24Mbps speeds) cable broadband is capable of delivering speeds ten times faster.

Although, the fastest fibre optic (cable broadband) broadband internet connection in the United Kingdom offered by the leading cable broadband provider in the country Virgin Media, delivers only 50Mbps download speed, it is considered that in the near future this bar will go up to 100Mbps.
