Fibre broadband is a new technology that is in the process of being rolled out across the UK. Fibre replaces part of the traditional copper underground broadband lines with fibre optic. It is often referred to as 'super-fast broadband' or 'next-generation broadband' as it offers faster speeds than have been available to date using older generation networks. It is available to both home and business users and comes in two flavours.
Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) involves running fibre optic cables from the telephone exchange or distribution point to the street cabinets, which then connect to a standard phone line to provide broadband. FTCC is not available everywhere, especially in rural areas, and in our experience the ability to gain advantage from it depends on your premise distance to a FTCC enabled cabinet.
