Fibre Broadband is the UK’s superfast broadband connection over fibre optics. FTTC broadband is delivered using fibre optic cable to the local street cabinet and copper wires from the cabinet to your premises. FTTP Fibre Broadband is fibre optics from the exchange all the way through to your premises and offers high-speed data across greater distances for a fast, stable and future-proof connection
Fibre Broadband can transfer voice and data up to 350Mbps (Megabits per second) but the exact speeds available at your business premise can vary. FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) connection can have a reduced speed due to the connection being Fibre then copper from the cabinet to your premises. FTTP (Fibre to the Premise) is a end-to-end fibre connection with internet speeds available from upto 350Mbps.
Fibre optic high-speed connectivity is available to approximately 10% of the UK, covering 2.5 million properties. We have a number of connection options available if a fibre path to your premise does not exist. BT announced that they are going to shut down their copper network by 2025.
The most recent figures from Ofcom highlight that fibre broadband availability in the UK has around 10% coverage across 2.5 million properties. Full fibre broadband could offer internet speeds of 1000Mbps - 20times faster than the UK average. The next 10% roll-out will take 12 to 18 months, dependent on town/city access and weather.
