Fibre Cabinet Connections
There are generally two different types of fibre optic broadband connections referred to as FTTC (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) and FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home). Fibre optic cables are used to help increase the speed of broadband connections for both home users and business users.
FTTC (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) is also known as Fibre-to-the-Kerb, involves running a fibre optic cable from a telephone exchange to an outdoor fibre cabinet which is then connected to a standard phone line to provide broadband to home or business users.
FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home) is also known as FTTP (Fibre-to-the-Premises), involves running a fibre optic cable the full distance from a telephone exchange right to the home or premises delivering an end-to-end full fibre optic connection.
