How reliable is fibre to the home?

Fibre to the home is the most reliable way to deliver broadband. Because much of the network is buried in ducts (much like gas) it has a very high build cost (which County Broadband are covering) but this is balanced by the fact it requires almost no maintenance.

Because the service is delivered by light waves and not by electrical current (like copper) it can deliver higher capacity speeds over much longer distances without any degradation to service.

Furthermore fibre (unlike copper) has no re-sale value so it is highly unlikely that anyone will want to steal it!
