FTTC is now available in the majority of locations across
the UK. Delivered over the latest fibre technology from the
exchange to the cabinet FTTC delivers faster speeds than
ADSL broadband services.
FTTC enables businesses to benefit from faster internet speeds
than traditional copper based ADSL broadband services,
without the costs associated with Ethernet services.
With unlimited usage and up to 80Mbps Download / 20Mbps
upload FTTC is ideal for businesses who rely on the transfer of
large files and use cloud based applications.
What Speeds can I expect?
Speeds up to 80mb down and 20mb up.
ADSL2+ is an enhancement to the original ADSL broadband
technology and can provide higher speeds, particularly for
those who are close to the exchange.
ADSL2+ technology is now available to 98% of UK homes and
premises. The maximum possible downlink connection speeds
for 2+ is 24 Mbps, which is substantial higher than the 8 Mbps
maximum for ADSL.
What Speeds can I expect?
Speeds up to 24mb down and 1.4mb up.
FTTP uses the latest fibre technology to deliver your service
from the exchange, to the cabinet and onto your premises.
FTTP uses ﬁbre from your premises right through to the core
network which delivers a more stable and faster service than
FTTC. As with copper based broadband, ﬁbre based FTTC
and FTTP services are contended, with no SLAs or fix time
guarantees. However, the increased speeds available are
attractive to many customers in areas where the service can be
G.Fast is the newest and fastest copper based broadband service
that is currently available. It is an improved version of FTTC which
means that you can achieve speeds up to four times faster than
traditional FTTC broadband.
Current Fibre Broadband maximum speeds are up to 80mb
download, G.Fast increases this to up to a potential 330mb
Previously the only way to get faster broadband speeds was to
install a FTTP connection but that isn’t available in all areas, so this
is where G.Fast can help.
G.Fast allows users to get these higher speeds by utilising
the current FTTC infrastructure. FTTC works by a fibre cable
transmitting broadband from your local exchange to your local
street cabinet. A copper cable is then used to transfer the fibre
broadband service from the local cabinet to your business or home.
G.Fast works in a very similar way to FTTC but a special pod
is fitted to the cabinet to alter the speed frequencies of the
connection. This change within the frequencies increases the
speed through the copper cable which results in a more reliable
broadband with ultrafast speeds. G.Fast users are typically located
no more than 500 metres from their local cabinet.
