A cost effective way of providing many users with the speed benefits of Fibre Broadband.

  • Fast file download
  • Improved use of multi-media
  • Reduced call cost with VOIP.

FTTC describes a deployment where a fibre cable runs…


…from a BT exchange to a street cabinet that contains the Broadband equipment.

From here it is linked to your business premises via the existing BT copper network. This then connects your business to your Internet Service Provider’s Fibre Broadband service.


FTTC does not achieve the same speeds as FTTP…


… Fibre to the Premises, where fibre is deployed directly to a building, but it is still a vast improvement on previous technologies and traditional telephone lines.
