Why Fibre Optic connection is important?

* Fibre broadband provides a much faster download.

* Upload speeds are much faster than a traditional asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) service.

* Speed is affected by the quality of your lines and distance from the exchange.

The two main types of fibre broadband service;

* FTTC - fibre links the telephone exchange to the roadside cabinet, with the copper cable connecting to your business.

* FTTP - fibre connects the exchange directly to your business's premises, without any copper lines, delivering a much faster internet speed.

The future of ultrafast broadband

* FTTP is expected to become the new 'standard' business broadband option.

* The focus is on installing an all-fibre service and removing copper cables all together.

* BTT believes that full fibre will help local businesses to thrive and unlock their digital potential. We are a City Champion partner with CityFibre in Northampton.
