FTTP is Fibre to the Premises. Instead of using copper infrastructure from the street cabinet to deliver connection to your office, FTTP uses optical fibre all the way.
The result is a significantly faster connection and hugely increased internet reliability. Plus, you’ll rarely experience any issues during peak demand periods like you can with other connectivity options.
FTTP uses optical fibre to deliver data to the end user. You may have heard the terms “last mile” or the “last loop” being used quite often when discussing fibre? Well, this describes the last part of the network, between the distribution point or exchange and your business premises.
Up until recently, this “last mile” occurred via copper wires – FTTC – however, this reduced bandwidth and speed of transmission. In a world where speed is everything, businesses have been left frustrated because of poor performance.
With FTTP, the old-fashioned copper infrastructure is replaced with fibre that can carry much more data over longer distances, enabling much faster transmission speeds between your businesses network and the ISP.
So, although FTTP is still a contended product and it doesn’t benefit from SLA’s, when it is compared to FTTC, instead of getting speeds of up to 80Mbps, you can now enjoy up to a monstrous 1Gbps (1000Mbps) – meaning you can do business quicker than ever before.
