5 key reasons fibre internet is a game-changer

16 May 24

While faster download speeds and higher bandwidth are typically the focal points when discussing the benefits of fibre internet, its true value encompasses broader societal and economic impacts.

In this week’s blog, we delve into the profound significance of fibre internet. Venturing beyond the realm of megabits and gigabits per second – we’re exploring the technology’s transformative effects on property value, business productivity, cybersecurity and more.

1. Enhancing Property Value

Given the increasing reliance on online activities for work, education and entertainment – fibre broadband has become a crucial consideration for property buyers.

A recent study conducted by Huawei has highlighted that high-speed internet ranks as the second most important factor for UK house buyers. Although its significance may vary in cities and suburbs where fast internet is commonplace – property with full fibre broadband in rural or remote areas are highly valued.

2. Boosting Business Productivity

Fibre internet offers more than just operational enhancements for businesses – it serves as a strategic investment that fuels productivity, fosters collaboration, drives innovation and gives companies a competitive edge. These factors stimulate growth and profitability.

With increased internet speeds, businesses can streamline operations, facilitate seamless communication, process large datasets swiftly and harness advanced applications like VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), video conferencing and cloud services to meet evolving customer needs.

3. Strengthening Cybersecurity

As the technology becomes more and more intrenched in our day-to-day lives, the 2020s have been mired by the increased threat of cyber attacks. This is why the secure nature of fibre internet gives it a significant advantage over traditional copper-based connections that are susceptible to interception.

A fibre-optic transmission, which utilises light rather than electrical signals, offers considerable resistance to common cyber threats. Attempting to tamper with fibre cables is physically difficult and detectable associated – making them a more secure option for safeguarding sensitive data.

4. Ensuring Sustainability

Fibre internet not only provides enhanced connectivity but also contributes to building a more sustainable infrastructure. Compared to copper-based networks, fibre networks boast a smaller environmental footprint due to their energy efficiency and reduced material requirements for manufacturing and installation.

Additionally, fibre optic cables are more durable and resistant to environmental factors, resulting in fewer replacements and repairs. This minimises waste and promotes environmental sustainability.

5. Stimulating economic growth

The deployment of fibre internet initiates a ripple effect in the economy, generating employment opportunities. New businesses and startups will locate to regions with a fibre internet connection, thereby stimulating economic growth.

It’s also important to consider the employment opportunities generated by the construction, installation and maintenance of fibre networks. With logistics professionals required to distribute key items of inventory, technicians needed to lay the cables and engineers to design the network architecture – thousands of jobs are created by the deployment of fibre broadband.


In summary, fibre internet transcends its role as a mere infrastructure upgrade – it serves as a catalyst for positive societal and economic change. Behind the scenes, TrackTrans plays a vital role in facilitating the seamless implementation of this infrastructural revolution.
