Our friends at KC very kindly offered to show us the journey of their superfast Fibre Optic broadband; From its origins at the KC HQ, to the exchange, through underground passages and right up to your front door.

We also looked the differences between older cabled connections, seen in most of the UK’s homes, to the brand new Fibre cables that will carry the next generation of high speed internet.

KC Lightstream is the UK’s fastest consumer Fibre Optic broadband and is currently rolled out in the East Yorkshire area. For more information check out www.KC.lightsteam.co.uk to learn more about superfast broadband technology.

  1. The URL in the article is wrong. IT points to the right place, but the text on the page says the wrong URL.

  2. Misleading, this isn’t the fastest broadband in the uk…. it seems to only go up to 100mb Virgin Media does broadband up to 152 for residential.

  3. You cant say that its the uks fastest internet when its only offered in 1 city, if you took the speeds that BT or Virgin offer and limit to one city they’d probably give 4 times those limits.

  4. the chaps connecting the cable in the road …. should be wearing a helmet and should also be using a roller to put the joint box lid back……. they would be sacked in other parts of the country

  5. That was really interesting looking at metal cages and more metal cages. Oh and some tunnels too. Thanks for a great educational video,

    Meanwhile I’ll patiently wait a couple more years for fibre, whilst being ‘Forced’ to pay a whopping £40 for well below national/local average speeds (5Mbs) a mile away from the town centre!

    Meanwhile I’ll patiently wait a couple more years for fibre, whilst being ‘Forced’ to pay a whopping £40 for well below national/local average speeds (h5Mbs) a mile away from the town centre! 

  7. How is it misleading? As I understand it KC terminate all their fibre within the home, which naturally allows for much greater fibre speeds than vDSL or fibre from the cabinet as provided by national providers. So as their customers can purchase a 350Mbps residential package, this must be merely a software limit and much lower than the theoretical maximum capacity of having fibre in the home, it’s allows for much more future proofing than FTTC and in my opinion the wiser deployment strategy. Once you’ve seen one grey cabinet, you’ve seen then all though! 🙂 

  8. The can’t terminate fibre optics in the home, this would be illegal. Virgin is currently the fastest and most reliable broadband in the country. I think I’ve had loss of service 3 times in 15 years, not counting scheduled maintenance of course.
