Christmas is now upon us and no doubt many of us are expecting Father Christmas to deliver the latest electronic goods, and we also may sit down and download the latest "Box Set" whilst all the family are together.

Did you know that your internet experience is likely to be much better, both downloading and uploading, if you are using a fibre connection.

For instance: if you want to download a movie of 858 MB, on a standard copper broadband connection at an average speed of 7.4 Mbs, then it would take you 4 hours and 20 seconds to download it. However, by using superfast fibre broadband downloading at an average speed of 52Mbs, it would only take 14minutes and 2 seconds!
