Why do you need to build a new network?

The new County Broadband fibre network is a full-fibre solution providing a fixed-line broadband service direct to the home. This enables us to provide FTTP or Fibre to the Premises, rather than Fibre to the Copper Cabinet. This setup enables us to send broadband speeds of up to 900mbps. This allows much faster speeds than the existing copper networks that are currently in place across the majority of the country. The rise of online media and the requirements for streaming in ever better definition and quality will mean the speeds offered by this current network will soon be insufficient to cope with the bandwidth needs in homes.
