Apple Airport Extreme

My area has just been enabled for Fibre. Suggests download of about 55MBs an upload of 18MBs.
Currently I have 14 down and 1 up, so a significant speed difference, but it is fine for Flickr HD and everything else.
at present use an Apple Airport Extreme (wireless router) connected through a Draytex Vigor modem. Couple of Airport Express (extends wireless networks and streams music to hi fi) and 3 Apple TV.
All the stuff just works together, plays very nicely, and can be controlled from iPhones etc.
couple of questions,
is it worth moving to fibre?
if i do move to fibre, will my stuff continue to work?
thanks
Steve

Yes, just connect the Airport Extreme to the BT fibre modem instead of your Draytek modem, that's it!, simples!
