Many residents across Derby can now accessZen Internet’sfull fibre connectivity over the CityFibre network, with thousands of new homes being added every month.

Only 33 per cent of UK households are full fibre-enabled giving residents of Derby the opportunity to be early adopters on what is being coined the future of broadband.

It’s the faster, more reliable, higher performance connection the UK has been waiting for and it’s now already available viaZenfor thousands of residents in Derby. Whether for working, playing, streaming, downloading or backing up precious files, it’s built to keep the whole home connected.

Whatever you’ve heard it called – from FTTP and FTTH to Ultrafast or Gigafast – full fibre gives you a different type of broadband; one that swaps old-fashioned copper wires for a faster, more modern and reliable connection delivered via fibre optic cables.

Traditional broadband connections use copper wires all the way from the exchange to your home. Copper is great at carrying phone calls, but when it’s used for data – as it has been for years – it can create certain problems.

For example, the strength of your signal can degrade very quickly over copper, which basically means the longer the copper wire between your home and the exchange, the slower your broadband speed.

Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) improved this situation a great deal in the last decade by using fibre optic cable to connect the exchange to your local street cabinet. But that ‘last leg’ – the final bit of distance between the cabinet and your house – still uses copper telephone wires.

Zen’s full fibre coming to Derby – why it’s worth the wait

Now, full fibre ensures a fibre connection all the way to your home. That means a more robust, reliable connection delivering internet speeds of up to 900Mbps is now available and can be enjoyed by thousands of residents in Derby withZen Internetover the CityFibre network.

Consider all the things you use your broadband for today – like streaming video, watching on-demand TV, downloading and playing online games, working from home or connecting all your household’s devices, including smart home technology.

Over the next few years, 4K streaming will become the norm, most of our entertainment will be online – we might even be streaming our games too. Then there’s home working, which for many has become permanent.

And don’t forget all those smart home devices, from smart speakers to thermostats, doorbells, CCTV, alarms, sensors and more. As our homes become increasingly connected, they’ll put an ever-greater strain on our bandwidth.

And that’s the key point. This isn’t just about great speed for a single connected device. This is about more than enough bandwidth to connect all your devices simultaneously and the ability to future proof a home’s internet capabilities. With download and upload speeds of up to 900Mbps,Zen’s Full Fibreis available in a range of packages starting from £29.99 per month allowing a household to connect all devices - lightning-fast, super reliably – at the same time.

Full fibre is probably the biggest leap forward in connectivity since the switch from dialup to broadband.

It’s built to cope with even the most demanding internet use both now and in the future. Which, in other words, means it will provide all the bandwidth you need today and probably for years to come.

When you’re looking for the absolute ultimate in a home connection, when the whole family wants to connect without compromise, when reliable home working is a must, when video calling is crucial, when you’re connecting the smart home of the future, today… well, full fibre with Zen over the CityFibre network is definitely worth the wait.
