Fibre Optics are long, thin strands of glass about the diameter of a human hair. They are arranged in bundles called Fibre Optic cables and use light instead of electricity to carry a signal. The light signals represent data, which is capable of traveling at the speed of light.
Did you know?
One bundle of Fibre cable not much thicker than a pencil can carry ALL of the world's current communications traffic.
To understand how Fibre Optic cable works, imagine you’re looking through a very long flexible plastic pipe several miles long, with the inside surface of the pipe coated with a perfect mirror. Several miles away at the other end, a friend turns on a flashlight and shines it into the pipe. Because the interior of the pipe is a perfect mirror, the flashlight’s beam will reflect off the sides of the pipe, even though the pipe may curve and twist, you will see it at the other end. If your friend were to turn the flashlight on and off in a Morse Code fashion, your friend could communicate with you through the pipe. This is the essence of a Fibre Optic cable.
Did you know?
Copper technology is over 100 years old. Many of the buried lines corrode which effects the quality of services through the lines.
Fibre to the Home involves installing fibre optic cabling to your home or business. Once installed, you’ll have access to crystal clear Digital Television, lightning fast high speed Internet and amazing Home Phone.
Burying the Fibre Optic Cables
You’ll start to see our construction crews working around town burying the Fibre – a similar process to old copper cables. Be sure to check your mail and local newspapers for the latest updates and news.
Fibre to the Home
One of the most important aspects of having Fibre Optics installed to your home is submitting a signed Construction Permission Form. This form allows Mornington Communications to bring the Fibre Optic line to your home or business with no obligation and usually free of charge.
A Mornington Communications rep will then contact you to set up a time for a Technician to perform a site visit to determine where they will bring the line from the street to the building. The Technician will mount a box on the outside of the building where the line will be brought in to be connected.
Once the construction crews have brought the Fibre Optic line to your home, which is almost non-invasive, our central office will be able to activate the line allowing you to access our services!
Unlike copper, Fibre Optics can carry massive amounts of information, or bandwidth, over long distances without breaking down.
|Fibre to the Home has greater capacity |
Streaming music and videos, gaming online, sending and receiving large files and even watching Digital television requires more bandwidth and speed than ever before. Fibre Optics is able to keep up with this need, which means more fun and connecting with friends and family.
|Fibre to the Home offers better quality services |
Mornington Communications offers Internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps. Our crystal clear Digital Television won’t let you down in the middle of a snow or rain storm. The Fibre Optic lines are buried in the ground, which means the weather doesn’t affect them. Enjoy many great calling features, such as Caller ID.
There will be minimal damage after the conduit line is cut into the lawn.
Every Fibre installation includes a UPS (battery backup). The UPS automatically engages when the power goes out. This smart system will turn off Television and Internet service to allow for corded Telephone service to stay active for up to eight hours.
The UPS uses a 120v plug, meaning you can connect it to your generator. This will reactivate your Fibre services as well as charge the battery in the UPS.
The battery comes with a three year warranty and typical lifespan is about five years. The UPS will send Mornington a signal when the battery is starting to fail. We provide replacement batteries at cost.
In the event of bad weather, be sure to have your cell phone charged for emergency calls and have at least one corded phone in your home.
