Fibre Optic / Fiber Optic

Fibre optic cable is made of very thin strands or threads of glass or plastic that can carry large amounts of digital information for long distances, using light.  They can carry much more data at one time than traditional copper wires.

Fibre optic cable is used to carry signals for broadband, TV and voice.

Fibre optic cables are reliable as they don’t suffer from electromagnetic interference, but they are expensive to install.
