Fibre to the cabinet is the most common and readily available type of fibre broadband connection. Also known as FTTC, fibre to the cabinet consists of two stages in its journey to your business. The first step of this journey is the fibre connection from the telephone exchange to your local cabinet. This could be at the end of your road. This is a dedicated fibre line that delivers superfast speeds to your cabinet - your cab may have a 'superfast fibre' sticker on it.
From the cabinet to your premises is copper cable. This cable connects your business to the internet but can be affected by its length. If you're further away from the green street cabinet, then your speeds will be slower than if you were right next to it. Over shorter distances, this is not noticeable, however if you are far away from your local cabinet, it may be worth considering the other type of fibre, FTTP.
Fibre to the premises is a less common type of fibre broadband connection, but offers much faster speeds than FTTC. Where fibre to the cabinet has two types of cable connecting your business to the internet, FTTP only has one: a fibre optic cable. This fibre cable initially starts out on the same path as that of an FTTC connection, from the telephone exchange to your local street cabinet, most likely located at the end of your road.
The main difference from FTTC is the final method of delivery - from the cabinet to your premises. With fibre to the premises, a fibre optic cable runs from the cabinet to your premises. This fibre connection is shared with other premises around you, for a dedicated connection, you may be interested in a leased line.
