What is FTTP?
FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) is the next generation of Internet connectivity for small to medium sized businesses. It uses fibre optic technology and runs from the telephone exchange all the way to your premises via the green cabinet at the end of your street. Unlike FTTC (which still relies on your existing copper telephone line to reach your premises), FTTP does not require a telephone line and allows you to connect directly to the Internet. It has ultra fast speeds of up to 330Mbps. Coverage is increasing and 4 million premises are expected to have coverage by March 2021.

Who needs FTTP?
• SMEs who require a cost-effective Internet service
• Organisations requiring a backup Internet connection
