LANDLINES & BROADBAND
Fibre-to-the-Cabinet broadband – also known as superfast broadband, is the next generation broadband connection; it uses fibre optic cables to provide significantly higher speeds both in upload and download.
FTTC broadband uses fibre optic cable from the local telephone exchange to connect to the nearest street side cabinet which serves your property. This is normally within a few hundred metres of your property. An engineer will usually install a new cabinet adjacent to or near the existing ‘green cabinet’ which serves your phone line. The new cabinet will house a VDSL2 capable DSLAM (a mini-version of what currently provides your ADSL broadband service) to which your phone line will be connected. As the cabinet is close to your property and also uses newer VDSL2 technology, the speed of your broadband is usually much higher.
FTTC offers extremely fast upload and download speeds even when several users are on the same connection. Users also enjoy higher quality voice and video calls over the internet with business grade next generation connectivity. FTTC offers all these features at a fraction of the cost of a leased line.
