There’ll be no room for fibre-to-the-cabinet when ultrafast broadband promoters celebrate the first Gimme Fibre Day on November 4.
The worldwide celebration is being organised by the Fibre To The Home Councils Global Alliance, a group of industry bodies dedicated to promoting FTTP (fibre to the premises).
It’s also the birthday of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Sir Charles Kuen Kao, known as ‘Father of Fibre Optics’, who laid the ground for today’s fibre optic networks.
There will be an online streaming TV channel with videos, interviews and round-table discussions about fibre-to-the-home.
They’re also hoping for fibre broadband providers and community groups to set up events and send in videos for the Gimme Fibre website to use on the day.
