1. Download HD movies

If you’ve been stuck with a DSL connection, downloading a 720p, 1080p or higher quality movie file was impossible. Once you go for a fibre connection, you can enjoy movies in rich visual glory. What used to be 2 days worth of downloads to acquire a 15GB movie file can now take you less than an hour on fibre.
2. Stream anything

While latency issues and 5-second delays are not entirely bad, they can be a problem for serious gamers. Once you switch to fibre you at the advantage of having a smooth and uninterrupted gaming experience.
4. Take advantage of clouding computing
Your internal hard drive might not be enough to store all your files for backup purposes.

For successful storage of your files in the ‘cloud’, you need a steady and uninterrupted real-time communication network. Now, you won’t have to worry about your computer crashing down on you because of the mounds of files that you are keeping. Whether you go for a public, private, hybrid or a community cloud service, you can backup your entire computer with ease using a fibre broadband connection.
