FTTC and FTTP explained

Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) provides a fibre optic cable connection from the local telephone exchange to a distribution point (commonly called a roadside cabinet). From here, a standard copper based telephone line is used to deliver the broadband connection.

Fibre to the premises (FTTP) broadband connects a business premises directly to the local telephone exchange via a fibre optic cable. With speeds up to 40 times faster than a normal copper based line FTTP is ideal for running a business VoIP network.
