What Is FTTP And How Does It Work?

what is fttp

FTTP stands for Fibre to the premises and is a type of fibre optic broadband that delivers fast, reliable speed by connecting your premises directly to the network with an optical fibre cable.

This connection runs from the exchange to your business – making it one of the most future-proof and reliable types of broadband available.

It is the fastest type of broadband around and can provide speeds of up to 1Gbps (1000Mbps). This means that you can download files, stream videos etc., at extremely high speeds.

The broadband speeds you can get with FTTP will depend on several factors, including the distance from the local exchange, the quality of the line and the package you choose.

What’s The Difference Between FTTP And SoGEA?

Fibre to the premises (or FTTP as its known for short) is a complete fibre connection which comes from the exchange and runs all the way to your premises regardless of whether that is residential or business.

FTTP is not available in as many locations (yet) as what SoGEA is but the rollout of pure fibre connectivity is in full swing so it wont be long before you will have the option of both.

SoGEA does not have the speed that FTTP does with the ability to get speed upto 1Gb compared to up to 330Mb with SoGFAST. SoGEA is a cost effective broadband solution but if you are in need of more power then (if it’s available) FTTP would win.

Both are very easy to install. Both are cost effective solutions. Both come with the option of using your own router or we can supply one. Both are easy to fix. Also, instead of using a copper phone line for calls, you can now use VoIP (voice over internet protocol).

What’s The Difference Between FTTP And FTTC?

difference between fttp and fttc

FTTC uses fibre-optic cables from the broadband exchange to a green street cabinet. The vast majority use Fibre to the Cabinet broadband, with FTTC connections available to a high percentage of businesses in the UK but this product will be extinct in 2025.

The rest of the Fibre to the cabinet connection then relies on the same copper wires as ADSL, making it faster than a purely copper line connection, but still slower than ‘full fibre‘, or fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband.

It’s better to have FTTP than FTTC. This is the general opinion because FTTP is a newer technology than FTTC, and as such it offers several advantages.

For example, FTTP is faster than FTTC broadband, with speeds of up to 1Gbps (1000Mbps) compared to FTTC’s maximum speed of 76Mbps. Still, choosing between FTTC broadband and FTTP can depend on your needs and requirements.

FTTP FAQ’s

question vector

Why Is FTTP Faster Than FTTC?

The main reason FTTP is faster than FTTC broadband speeds is that it uses a different type of connection. With FTTP, the connection runs from the exchange to your premises – allowing it to provide much faster speeds. With FTTC, the connection only goes part of the way – with the last bit running over copper wires. Copper connections mean that the speeds are slower.

question vector

Does FTTP Use Copper?

No, copper is not used with FTTP. Instead, it uses fibre optic cables – which are made of glass or plastic.  Copper network (ADSL) basic broadband access uses a copper phone line connected to the exchange. FTTP is much faster than copper cables and can carry data over long distances without losing speed.

question vector

Is FTTP Better Than ADSL?

Yes, FTTP is superior to ADSL broadband. This is because FTTP offers significantly faster speeds than ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line), as well as a more consistent and secure connection. Additionally, FTTP does not require a physical phone line to function, whereas an ADSL connection does. 

question vector

Who Has The Largest FTTP Network?

The largest FTTP network in the UK is the Openreach network, which they have plans to keep increasing. They aim to make FTTP available to 85% of UK premises by the end of 2025.

question vector

Why Are Installs Longer Than FTTC?

FTTP takes longer to install than standard fibre broadband because the fibre optic cables need to be run to your premises. This is a more complex process than connecting your premises to a street cabinet, which is required for standard fibre broadband.

We hope this article has helped you understand FTTP and the many benefits it can offer your business. If you have any other questions or want to know more, don’t hesitate to contact us on 03300 770070.
