Fibre to the Cabinet - The Next Generation in Connectivity
Fibre To The Cabinet, or FTTC as it is more commonly known, is the next step up in internet connectivity from standard copper line based broadband.
Providing download speeds of up to 76Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps, it is ideal for those organisations that need significant speed increases above broadband - but without the costs of a leased line.
FTTC is currently being rolled out around the UK and at the moment approximately 20% of UK exchanges have been enabled, so please use our connectivity checker or speak to your account manager to see if you are able to take advantage of this new technology - or find out when your exchange is likely to be enabled.
FTTC - The NEXT generation
Unlike standard broadband services, FTTC is fitted by a BT Openreach engineer who will install a new faceplate for the FTTC and a NTE device. This needs to be plugged into your router or firewall product - the Vigor 2830 range will work absolutely fine - or speak to your account manager if you are not sure.
- Download speed of up to 76Mbps
- Upload speeds of up to 20Mbps
