Can copper-straight through cables utilize fibre broadband?

Hi, I was hoping someone could give me some insight. I am currently working on my graded unit in college. What my question is, can I utilize fibre broadband if I'm using a copper-straight through ethernet cables? I am trying to decide on an ISP for my project and the infinity fibre broadband is by far the better deal than the regular packages. However, I don't want to add extra cost if the cables will not be able to utilize the download speed. Thanks

It is only fibre to the Modem

After the modem it can be anything from Ethernet Cables to Wireless and yes even Fibre cable but the modems currently being provided by the ISP's tend to be either wired and Wireless interfaces after the modem.

As for being able to use the full speed that all depends the Wired Connections tend to be Gigabyte Speeds and Wireless is just slow but it will allow whatever the maxanium speed of the connection from the modem to the computer is to be used achieved though with wireless there are error corrections and so on that will slow the speed down.
