Superfast Fibre Broadband, FTTC, Infinity… it’s amazing how many different names this gets called. The technical name is VDSL2, or Very-High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line 2 – and it’s not true Fibre Broadband, it can’t be really, as there’s no Fibre coming into your property.
The real difference between this and ADSL is not the technology, it’s how much of the total circuit is copper. For Superfast Fibre Broadband, there’s fibre optic cable between your local exchange, and your nearest roadside cabinet. That means the copper signal (which degrades rapidly) over distance, only comes from your local cabinet, not the further away exchange and usually gets you a better speed.
In the UK, Superfast Fibre Broadband is available up to 80Mbps, depending on your local cabinet. The speed you get can also be affected by the quality of the cabling, both inside and outside your property – the extension lead that got damaged by the builder could be causing a speed drop.
We can also do the full range of special services, like Care Level 4 – where if there’s a fault on the copper phone line delivering your internet, Openreach work to a 6-hour fix time, 24x7x365 for just £5 a month! Or we can do a Static IP, or a range of Static IPs if that’s what you need. Not bad, hey?
All of our fixed line broadband services are provided with unlimited data use – we don’t believe in capping.
We include a basic router with WiFi in all our services, but if you’ve got a more complicated requirement (like Internet Access throughout a 6 storey building), why not talk to us about our Networking Services, where we can create a bespoke solution for you?
