Faster internet for everyone!


We are talking about fibre optic broadband

Fibre optic broadband (usually shortened to 'fibre broadband') is the future of broadband. Currently, two forms of fibre broadband are being rolled out by BT: Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP).

FTTP or ‘Fibre to the Premises’ means fibre is connected all the way to your office or house. By contrast, FTTN or ‘Fibre to the Node’ has a fibre running to a mini-exchange or node near your premises, which is then connected from that point to your property through traditional copper line.

Both FTTP and FTTN are based on fibre optic cable, although fibre, copper, and other technologies may also be used. Fibre optic cable is used because it allows fast uploads and downloads. However, connection speeds for FTTN can diminish the farther your premises are located from the node.

So which is one better? While both provide faster internet connectivity when compared to ADSL, it might be helpful to think of FTTN as one generation up from ADSL, and FTTP as one step ahead of FTTN.

Though FTTP is significantly faster than FTTN, costs to the consumer are relatively similar.
