It may be fibre within its own network (like BT and everybody else) but 
its data connection is via the coaxial cable part of the twin 
coax+twisted-pair cable laid from their junction box in the street to 
the junction box at your house. From there there's a splitter which 
separates the data part from the analogue TV and FM radio (on our legacy 
connection at least: I don't know how it's connected for more modern 
digital TV subscribers) and the data part is connected to a cable modem 
(made by Pace I believe) which is equivalent to the ADSL modems 
purchased by broadband-over-BT-line people.
