Celebrate Fibre Today!

To honor the birthday of Charles Kao, who pioneered the use and development of fiber optics in telecommunications, FTTH Councils around the world will be celebrating the first annual Gimme Fibre Day on November 4, 2013.

The celebration will showcase how fiber optics have positively impacted communities around the world and what policymakers can do to accelerate its deployment and adoption.

Charles Kao

Sir Kao was jointly awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics for "ground-breaking achievements concerning the transmission of light in fibres for optical communication”.

Read more on Sir Kao here.

"Thank you for so honouring Professor Kao on his birthday - he will be 80 years old this year", declared Mrs. Gwen Kao, Professor Charles Kao's wife. "Back in the early days, when he announced that optic fibre would change the world, I laughed at him and joked about a Nobel Prize! Decades later, we live in a high-tech world so full of creativity, where products improve so fast that items become obsolete overnight. We are finally able to fully appreciate the impact of his vision. He would be very touched if he understood the event, but he has been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for the last 11 years.


On his behalf, I wish you a successful Gimme Fibre Day!"

Gimme Fibre Day on 4 November

People all over the world will participate in the inaugural Gimme Fibre Day, an annual 'event' jointly created by the FTTH Councils Global Alliance to celebrate the only future-proof solution and showcase how fibre has positively impacted communities across the world.

The date for this annual celebration of fibre optics was selected because it corresponds with the birthday of Nobel Prize winner Sir Charles Kuen Kao, the man who changed the way the world communicates. Sir Kao was jointly awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics for "ground-breaking achievements concerning the transmission of light in fibres for optical communication".
