Why Full Fibre Broadband?

Full Fibre broadband – also known as FTTP or Fibre to the Premises – is the latest broadband technology. When you have Full Fibre, you’ll have a fibre-optic cable that runs all the way from the cabinet in the street, straight into your property for the most reliable connection. Unlike copper or aluminium, Full Fibre is weatherproof, incredibly reliable and can deliver gigabit speeds.

Why is Full Fibre Broadband better than FTTC?

FTTC stands for Fibre to the Cabinet and is the most widely available broadband connection in the UK. FTTC combines both a copper and fibre optic into one network. A Fibre optic cable connects the exchange to the cabinet in your street, but you’ll still have a traditional copper cable that continues the connection from there to your home or business. It’s an older technology that is not as fast or reliable as Full Fibre, you’ll notice slower speeds during busier periods, and the faster you are from the cabinet the more you will notice slower speeds.

Full Fibre Broadband vs FTTC

When it comes to Full Fibre Broadband vs FTTC, Full Fibre wins every time because it is built entirely from super resilient, ultra fast modern cables. No amount of typically rainy UK weather will break it. And no number of virtual reality loving, binge watching, video calling housemates will slow it down.

It’s future-ready, built for today – and it’ll let the whole household do their thing.
