What is Superfast Fibre Broadband?
Superfast Fibre Broadband, or Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC), is the UK’s most common type of broadband. It uses fibre to connect our exchange with your local cabinet, and copper wires to connect the cabinet with your home. With download speeds of up to 80Mbps, it’s great for both binging box sets and working from home.
What happens next?
Depending on your current broadband and phone line service, you may need an engineer to visit your home for an installation. Once you’ve ordered a package with your chosen service provider, they’ll let you know whether this is necessary. Superfast is installed through your phone line, so if you’re switching service providers, they’ll usually just send you a new router - plug it in and you’re good to go.
