FTTC Broadband – Fibre-to-the-cabinet. This is delivered via fibre to a green street cabinet with the last leg to your premises delivered on copper. As the copper run is much shorter than traditional ADSL (where the copper goes from your premises back to the exchange) you can get much faster speeds – Up to 80Mbps down and 20Mbps up can be achieved depending on the distance from the cabinet. The copper line is a standard BT pstn line. This allows voice calls to be placed on this line
