The Difference between FTTC and FTTP
FTTP (Fibre To The Premises) this is the faster option out of the two, it’s a full fibre based product from the exchange to your home with speeds from 100mb download and 30mb upload. Unfortunately for us in st annes and lytham we will only be getting, FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet). This is fibre from your exchange up to the green cabinets in the streets. (the BT Chaps sitting on little stools are always at them!) Then from the green cabinets, a black copper wire from the telephone poles into your home. I am not complaining though! Honest! the FTTC speeds are up to 80mb download and 20mb upload. Hurray!
Thanks For Reading, All the Best.
