Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC)
The emergence of Fibre to The Cabinet (FTTC / FTTH / FTTP) has changed the way that businesses can get online and offer a reliable service. These services provide a higher level of speed and reliability for firms which would have only been available on private networks and leased lines.
These services would normally cost a great deal of money so the fact that the reliability and speed associated with these services are available in a more affordable format, there is a lot of interest to business.
High Quality, High Speeds
With the term “superfast broadband” becoming well known across the UK, consumers know that there is a better level of service available for them. This is where the use of Fibre to The Cabinet (FTTC / FTTH / FTTP) comes into play. This next generation service provides businesses and homes with a high level of broadband connectivity. This service is provided by fibre optic cables that offer improved upload and downloads speeds, saving time while increasing performance.
If you have noticed the increasing number of dark green cabinets around the country, you will be aware of the rising availability of these services. These cabinets are communication portals for improved telephone and internet connection. If your home or business is located close to one of these portals, you are in line for a better service.
Now more commonly known to hone and business users across the United Kingdom as superfast fibre broadband, FTTC (Fibre to The Cabinet) is the new generation when it comes to home and business broadband connectivity. By using fibre optic cables it can provide vastly improved connectivity speeds bot in downloading and uploading, thus saving you time and increasing performance, whether at home or at work.
On your travels around the UK, you will see small dark green cabinets dotted around the area. These communication cabinets contain all of the connections and communications equipment for your Internet and telephone. So the closer you are to one of these, the better it is and the faster your internet connection will be.
What Can We Do?
One UK, in partnership with the carriers, is in the process of introducing their new Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) services. So, there will be additional cabinets appearing across the county which will house the fibre optic equipment needed to deliver these new services.
At One UK, we work closely with carriers responsible for Fibre to The Cabinet (FTTC / FTTH) services and this means we can offer you a reliable and high-quality service. It is expected that these fibre optic cables will eventually replace copper-wire connectivity, offering better service for everyone.
This fibre (one day) will replace copper-wire technology which currently exists between the small green cabinets and your local exchange.
What’s fibre to the Premises?
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is a pure fibre connection. It connects your home or business directly to the exchange. It gives you speeds up to 1Gbps. Our access to the fibre to the premises network is already the UK’s largest, covering 365,000 homes and businesses. But luckily BT are not stopping there. They plan to reach two million homes and businesses by the end of 2020, and we have direct access to that network due to our partners.
