there, the connection is transmitted over traditional copper telephone lines to
the business’s location. This allows businesses to access fast internet speeds
without the need for costly and disruptive installation of fibre optic cables.
One of the
main benefits of FTTC is its high speeds. With the advent of GFast technology
(available in some areas) , businesses can access download speeds of up to 330
Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50 Mbps. These speeds are suitable for a range
of business needs, including video conferencing, online collaboration, and
FTTC is also
a reliable option for businesses. Because the connection is delivered over
fibre optic cables to the cabinet, it is less prone to interference and
degradation than other types of broadband. This ensures that businesses have a
stable and consistent connection.
In terms of
cost, FTTC is often more affordable than other broadband options, particularly
for businesses located in areas where fibre optic cables are not yet available.
There are a
few factors to consider when choosing FTTC for your business. One of the main
considerations is the distance between the business and the cabinet. The
farther the distance, the slower the speeds may be. It’s also important to
consider the needs of your business and choose a plan with sufficient speed and
data allowance to meet those needs.
