Optimal Fibre

Optimal Fibre is our Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) broadband solution which will offer speeds of up to 1 Gbps downstream and 200 Mbps upstream. Optimal Fibre is the latest advancement in broadband technology and promises superfast speeds. Its name comes from the use of plastic or glass cables, which allows for faster data transfer compared to the traditional copper wires used in ADSL & VDSL services.
