Confused by connectivity?

There are three ways we connect you to our broadband network

Fibre to the Premise (FTTP)

Download speeds of up to 1Gbps

Also known as Fibre to the Home (FTTH) or Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband.  This is our most reliable, fastest broadband with a pure fibre optic cable straight into your home or business directly from your nearby exchange.

Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC)

Download speeds of up to 330Mbps

Until FTTP is built to more of the UK, this is our most widely available and popular broadband type powering both our Superfast Fibre broadband and GFast Fibre broadband products. FTTC provides a fibre optic cable from your nearby exchange to your local cabinet. From the cabinet to your home or business, we use traditional copper wires to power your connection.

Copper network (ADSL)

Download speeds of up to 24Mbps

Standard broadband access uses a copper phone line connected all the way from your property through your local cabinet and to your nearby exchange.
