FTTP means fibre-to-the-premise broadband. It is also called FTTH, or fibre-to-the-home. FTTP is where a fibre optic cable runs from the exchange right into the WIFI unit or router in your home or business premise. Fibre optic technology transmits information as light pulses along a glass fibre, which ensures your internet speed is guaranteed.
It is much faster than the very old copper telephone lines.Broadband offers symmetrical upload and download speeds of 300 Mbps and 900 Mbps on Power. This means much faster uploading and downloading, especially when you have several people online at the same time. There is no throttling or buffering.
It gives you improved movie and TV streaming, as well as video watching. You can send and receive emails with big attachments and work with pictures much more easily. It’s better for video calling loved ones and for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) gaming.
It is also much more reliable for business and innovation, teleworking and e-commerce, hotels and tourism, as well as tele-education, e-exams and telemedicine – all these things can be instantaneous.
Yes. Fibre-optic broadband offers higher security because of the way it transmits data. Not only does the data move at high speeds, but its signals are much harder for hackers to intercept.
Faster and reliable broadband enables more people to work from home. By reducing the number of people commuting to and from work, this helps individuals to reduce their carbon footprint and the number of cars on the road. Moreover, the technologies used to provide broadband over FTTP are more efficient than those used for copper and cable networks. There is lower energy consumption, which should mean lower household energy bills.
The reason we homed in on these places is because they are poorly served with broadband. This means that the region has potentially been ‘held back’ in terms of inward investment – job creation is stymied and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have not had the opportunity to grow. Homeworking and home schooling have been very difficult especially when more people are in the house or office.
