FTTC Fibre to the cabinet
“Fibre optic broadband is all about speed.”
Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) provides you with a low-cost, high-speed connectivity solution that bridges the gap between copper broadband and Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM).
Your broadband travels via your copper telephone line to the nearest exchange before it reaches the fibre cable, meaning the distance between the exchange and your office influences the performance of the FTTC.
Compared to ‘conventional' ADSL broadband, fibre networks can be up to five times faster, with providers trying to outdo the competition with quicker and quicker optimum speeds.
In a nutshell, it can deliver enough bandwidth for an SME to run multiple IP-based applications at the same time, making your business more productive and cost effective.

Minimise your maintenance costs and offer a more reliable service
Maintain your competitive edge
However, the only problem with fibre optic broadband is that only half of UK’s properties have access to fibre optic cables, meaning that you can only use FTTC if your area is covered.
