Fibre


Had fibre internet installed yesterday. 

You'd think it would be fibre right up to the router, but no, they leave the copper in your house alone, and right up to the nearest community junction box. Only after that does it become fibre. 

Obviously copper can carry high speed internet when it's just a few users, but once main trunking gets involved, copper can't handle the capacity.

One thing they don't tell you when you make the switch is that it can take 3 days for the line to settle, with constant disconnections in the meantime - so if you're thinking of making the switch, don't do it when you need the internet most. I was lucky to get 3 emails off yesterday.
