What’s the difference between FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) and FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet)?

FTTP – Fibre to the Premises provides a pure fibre path from your home or office to the exchange, delivering speeds of up to 330Mbit/s.

FTTC – Fibre to the Cabinet provides a fibre path between the cabinet near you and the exchange. We use the existing copper network to cover the few hundred yards between you and the cabinet. It’s the copper that causes the pinch-point, while still delivering faster speeds than are available today.
