Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC)


Fibre cable is run from the exchange to the nearest cabinet, then a copper line is run from the cabinet to your premises.​


This technology was mostly  deployed in 2000’s and was a good upgrade for a large part of the UK allowing most users to access speeds of around 30-60 Mbps.

Moving into the future we expect the data demands of the average home to require 300Mbps – 1Gbps. FTTC is not able to deliver speeds at this level.

Fibre to the premises (FTTP)


FTTP service gives a direct line to the internet with no old copper cables and no sharing with the neighbours. This means your broadband is not just faster, but the most reliable around. In theory, a single fibre can deliver speeds of more than 100 Gbps.

Imagine downloading the whole Netflix library in less than a couple of minutes. FTTP is about getting out communities ready the data requirements of the future.

Wireless (FWA)


FWA, or Fixed Wireless Access, uses wireless signals from a nearby base station to connect your home to the internet. No need for cables dug into your garden or drilling holes in the wall – it’s broadband beamed straight to you. This setup is perfect for areas where laying cables is tough or too expensive. Speeds can vary, but with the latest tech, we’re talking up to 1 Gbps in some cases.

You get a solid connection that can handle streaming, gaming, and all your online needs, with the simplicity of wireless setup.


Quick and easy to install, which means you can get connected faster without waiting for cables to be laid.

Flexible and scalable. It’s easier to upgrade or adjust the coverage and capacity of a wireless network as technology advances or demand changes.


Susceptible to environmental factors such as bad weather, which can affect signal quality and speed.

Potential for interference from other wireless signals in the area, including those from other household devices, which can lead to inconsistent speeds.

4G / 5G - Mobile (LTE)


LTE dish deployment brings high-speed, internet to your doorstep using the same technology that powers your smartphone.  Think of it as having a supercharged mobile hotspot, permanently fixed to offer stable access to your entire home.


Straightforward setup with minimal infrastructure required.

Benefits from rapid advancements in mobile technology, with speeds and reliability improving as 5G networks expands.


Signal strength and speed can be affected by physical obstructions, distance from the cell tower, and the number of users sharing the network.
