Why speed matters? Fibre optic is the fastest The mega speeds of up to 100Mb that you can get with Virgin wireless Broadband are thanks to fibre optic cable. It’s made from strands of glass as thin as hair, which carry information by light. This is much, much faster than the copper telephone wire used by other providers. And, unlike broadband down your phone line, fibre optic broadband doesnt get slower the further away your house is from the telephone exchange.Presentation created on 14th of August 2012
