FTTP broadband

What is FTTP Broadband?

The term FTTP refers to Fiber to the Premises. FTTP basically means that the fiber cables that connect you to the internet go directly to your premises, this is being utilized now for residential as well as commercial properties.

If you are looking for a new broadband package that is super fast, then you probably have come across either FTTP or FTTC. Fiber to premises is much faster than the old copper telephone line used by many other broadband services. You can get speeds of up to 1Gbps (gigabits per second) or more when using FTTP.

The only downside of FTTP is that it is as widely available as the alternatives.

If you are looking to find if your premises can have FTTP please have a look at the Open Reach website, they have a great tool to help with this. Click here to access it.

What is FTTC?

Fiber to the Cabinet (FTTC) is the other option that is available to you, but this is normally a lot slower than FTTP. The reason why FTTC is normally slower than FTTP is that the fiber cables stop at the Cabinet, the rest of the connection is via copper wires, meaning you loose a lot of the speed by the time it reaches your home or business premises.

FTTC is normally cheaper than FTTP as it is more widely available.
