Frequently Asked Questions
A full fibre connection between your home and our fibre network, no copper at all. A FullFibre connection will drastically improve your online experience at home. HD and 4K streaming will be easy no matter how many people are online. Remote working will become more reliable as well as faster and your new up-to-date connection will be ready for any new technology coming.
The vast majority of the internet packages in the country that are marketed ‘fibre’ are actually FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet), which is only partially a fibre optic connection. In this scenario they usually use fibre optic cabling from the telephone exchange building to a cabinet (usually the green box in the road near your house) and then from the cabinet to your property they would use slower copper wiring. This, in comparison to a FullFibre connection would severely limit your speeds. Through utilising a FullFibre connection with fibre optic cabling directly to your property you will receive ultra-fast reliable service capable of gigabit speeds.

Our goal is to connect as many properties, homes, and businesses as possible in order to help bring the UK into the future of gigabit capable network speeds. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to serve every town, when planning our network build, we must consider several factors such as physical and legal constraints, due to this on occasion we are not able to cover a certain area. We apologise for any inconvenience.

It is always our preferred method of delivery to use existing underground ducting built by Openreach, however in some rare cases we have found that areas were built using an out-of-date build method known as direct bury. In areas such as this it may be necessary to install telegraph poles in order to bring a FullFibre connection in line with the government goal of bringing the UK to gigabit capable speeds.
In the rare instances where we do have to erect telegraph poles, small fibre cables may be run between new poles, but only properties that place an order with a FullFibre partnered ISP will be directly connected, we will not be forcing anyone to have an overhead cable installed to their property.
For all enquiries about joining the team, staffing and updates on career opportunities please see all of our current vacancies here: https://full-fibre-limited.breezy.hr/
If you are looking to carry out work for us as a contractor, you will need a minimum of 5 gangs and an approximate annual turnover of two million GBP.
Some existing areas of underground infrastructure, previously installed by Openreach have been used in a method called ‘direct bury’. This means that there is no existing duct to thread the fibre cables through.
In order to take all of this copper network out, we would have to close the road for longer and cause severe disruption for an extended period of time.
This letter is simply a notification that we will be erecting telegraph poles in your area. You do not have to respond if you do not wish to.
If you can see that there is an issue with a specific pole location, you can contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will review all concerns over these locations to see if there any suitable and appropriate adjustments that can be made.
The installation of new poles is permitted under the Local Planning Legislation if the existing infrastructure cannot be utilized.
