By Julia Kukiewicz – From early next year, internet service providers (ISPs) will be able to offer fibre to the home (FTTH) broadband capable of speeds up to 330Mbps at first installation. With a bit of tweaking down the line these ‘all fibre’ connections could deliver up to 1Gbps, about 140 times faster than the UK’s average broadband speed at the moment, in a few years.
Whether Cardiff will be much impressed is another matter.
