Choosing your Connectivity
Fibre offers exceptional speeds of up to 330 Mbps down and 30 Mbps up, in other words you can have broadband that is up to 40 times faster than ADSL used to be. Click here to read more about your options and see which is ideal for voice and data. You will be surprised how little it can cost.
Unlike with other kinds of broadband service, the speed you get with FTTC doesn't depend on how far your premises are from the local BT exchange, but rather how far you are from the local cabinet, which is great news for many small businesses! Some companies are enjoying a 20x increase in download speed and even higher in the other direction, for a very small increase in cost.
FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) broadband uses a full fibre optic connection from a given network to the cabinets (the green ones you see on the streets), using copper wire to your home from the cabinet. Ask us today if FTTC is available to your offices. FTTC was designed to serve the domestic market, but small businesses can operate on this platform. However, we strongly advise adding Business Care so that you have better SLA in the event of an outage.
This is ideal for companies with up to 10 people working online.
Ultrafast Full Fibre (FTTP)
The benefits to your business of implementing the right data connection go beyond cost efficiencies and speedy web browsing.

This includes being able to embrace the latest collaboration tools and technologies to help your staff work smarter.
Suitable from 1 to 50 users, Ultrafast Fibre (FTTC G.fast) and Ultrafast Full-Fibre (FTTP) Broadband gives you faster download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 48 Mbps. This increased speed, reliability and reduced latency enables you to take full advantage of bandwidth intensive and real time applications in the cloud. The distance data travels over copper lines affects the speeds that can be provided. This means that higher speeds can now be provided as the distance the data travels over copper has been reduced by the introduction of fibre. As with standard ADSL broadband services, the speeds are still asymmetrical, with greater download than upload speeds.
