FTTP - FTTC Services


Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is a brand new ultra-fast broadband service that provides download speeds of up to 330Mb/s and uploads speeds of up to 30Mb/s, that’s up to 40 times faster than a traditional copper line circuit. It is part of a £2.5 billion investment from BT aiming to bring fibre optic broadband to two-thirds of the UK by 2015.

FTTP gives a direct fibre link between your property and the local exchange, so there is no reliance on any of the old copper line infrastructure that are used to deliver the traditional type of BT services.

One of the main advantages of FTTP is that it is not subject to interference, which can often affect ADSL connections, thus fibre connections are generally a lot more reliable.

With this service, Customers will be able to further exploit the power of the internet with quicker download and upload speeds, easy access to high bandwidth applications such as streaming video and much more.


Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) is another high speed broadband service offering lighting fast download speeds of up to 80Mb/s.  It is already in reach of more than five million people in the UK as per BT – and rollout continues at a rapid pace. In fact, BT confirms the roll out of fibre broadband is one of the most rapid in the world, connecting on average 80,000 additional premises every week.

FTTC broadband uses a fibre optic cable from the local telephone exchange to connect to the nearest street cabinet which serves your property. This is normally within a few hundred metres of your property.

The speed of your connection will vary depending on the distance to the actual fibre cabinet that serves your premises. However, unlike FTTP, the copper cable that already connects to your premises is still used for the final ‘link’, but as this is usually quite short it has a lesser effect on the overall connection speed.
