Tech Quiz: Fibre Broadband & The Ultrafast Future

Broadband was once a luxury for checking emails or finding out sports scores but is now instrumental to both everyday and business life. Government services, entertainment applications and communication all rely on a strong fixed connection.

In the business world, cloud applications, the Internet of Things (IoT) and whatever technological innovations that develops over the coming years will also depend on the network.
