What is the difference between ADSL, FTTC and FTTP?

Asymmetric Digital Subscribers Line (ADSL)

Internet data is passed through copper cables and travel from the telephone exchange to the premise. The speed you receive will depend on how far away you are from the telephone exchange. The greater the distance, the more the signal will deteriorate.

Fibre-To-The-Cabinet (FTTC)

FTTC is a combination of copper and fibre optic cables. Fibre cables run from the exchange to a cabinet in an area, and copper cables run from the cabinet to the premise, providing internet speeds faster than the traditional ADSL lines.

Fibre-To-The-Premise (FTTP)

FTTP is the fastest type of internet connection, delivering high-speed broadband directly to the premise via fibre optic cables.

With FTTP, you will have a more reliable connection as the position of your premise relative to the exchange will have no impact on the speed or performance of your internet connection.
