Today, 4th of November 2016, is Gimme Fibre Day.
Fibre Broadband connection is slowly becoming the fourth utility worldwide. Along with running water, gas and electricity, most of us now want, and a select amount are lucky enough to have, fibre to the home because of the benefits fibre brings to all.
FTTH Council have decided to celebrate Gimme Fibre Day on the 4th November, to share how FTTH is the only future-proof broadband access solution and how it positively impacts individuals and their communities. But why the 4th of November? Because it is the birthday of Nobel Prize winner Sir Charles Kuen Kao, the man who changed the way the world communicates… by transmitting light in fibre for optical communication.
