What Is FTTC Broadband?


FTTC is a superfast fibre broadband internet service that uses a mix of fibre optic and traditional copper telephone lines to connect businesses to a service provider like Syscomm. Fibre runs from the telecom provider’s core network to your nearest cabinet (the roadside box) from which the fibre is connected to copper lines, and connected to your business premises.

FTTC provides a much faster and more reliable connection than DSL, making it a good choice for businesses that need a stable connection with better download and upload speeds.

A single FTTC connection can deliver up to 76Mbps download speeds and around 20Mbps upload speeds. This improved bandwidth means that businesses can support more users, take advantage of VoIP technologies, stream, and share files with ease using superfast FTTC broadband.

Over 95% of the UK can get access to FTTC, making it one of the most popular ways to get connected to a fibre-optic network. It’s competitively priced, provides superfast speeds, and is tried and tested, making it an ideal solution across a range of small businesses.

For small and medium businesses, our FTTC internet gives you the freedom to work from the cloud, taking advantage of hosted VoIP telephony, video conferencing, and provides your customers with the quality service they need. Our fibre optic broadband deals and packages are designed with your business in mind, and we can tailor what we offer to suit you, making this a perfect internet solution for SME’s.  

 FTTC technology has been rolled out extensively across the UK, with many residential areas using it alongside business parks, industrial estates, and commercial city centres. If you’re thinking of upgrading, we’ll use a broadband availability checker to test for fibre availability in your area before you make any big decisions. Our internet packages can help improve your business productivity and customer experience with a superfast, secure and reliable fibre broadband service.

Our dedicated team of network specialists will set you up with the best fibre optic connection available in your area, ensuring we do everything we can to support your business needs by delivering a high-performance, cost-effective superfast broadband solution.

How Does FTTC Internet Work?


FTTC stands for ‘Fibre-optic to the Cabinet’, and it involves a full fibre-optic line from the FTTC provider to the FTTC cabinet locations set up in your local area. From this street cabinet, a copper line is then used to connect the broadband line to your business.

Our FTTC broadband services at Syscomm can give you speeds from 38Mbps up to 76Mbps downstream, and 20Mbps upstream, making it fast enough to power your small or medium business’ connectivity needs.

However, not all businesses can get the fastest speeds – as the length of the phone line connection between the street cabinet and your premise will impact on the service. The closer your business is located to the cabinet on the street, the better your speeds will be.

Syscomm will monitor your router every minute of every day so that we can be sure your fibre to cabinet broadband is operating to its full capabilities, and we’ll be alerted if there’s any degradation on the line that could affect your service. In this way, we don’t just leave you in the dark after installing your FTTC; instead, we’ll be by your side as your business expands and changes, making sure your broadband grows with you.

Why Choose Fibre to the Cabinet Broadband?


Now you know exactly what FTTC is, let’s see how it compares to other broadband options. 

The two main fibre broadband solutions are FTTC and FTTP Broadband. The difference with FTTP – which Syscomm can also install for you – is that it uses fibre-optic lines for both connections; from the carrier network to the cabinet, and then directly to the end-user. This makes FTTP considerably faster than FTTC, much more reliable and not subject to the same distance restrictions associated with FTTC. An FTTP broadband connection enables businesses to reach speeds of up to 1Gbps, making it a more suitable solution for larger businesses.

Compared to other business broadband solutions, standard SLA’s for FTTC are not particularly stringent  (although they can be purchased at an additional upgrade cost), which can be a problem for any business that relies heavily on a reliable ‘always-on’ superfast network connection.

There’s also G.fast internet, which uses your existing copper infrastructure, but, by changing the way broadband signals are transmitted, can deliver speeds of up to 330Mbps over your current copper line. G.fast is currently being rolled out across the UK and may not be in your area. Get in touch with one of our broadband team and we can let you know if G.fast is in your area.

Syscomm also offers a range of other resilient, secure data connections and multi-site networking solutions such as leased lines, MPLS Network and SD WAN.
