What is Fibre Broadband?

When considering a new business broadband solution there are a few options to compare. These include SoGEA (standard business broadband), Fibre to the Premises and Leased Lines. The best solution for you will depend on your wants and needs. So, in this post we’re going to take a deep dive into Fibre Broadband and its benefits.


What is Fibre Broadband?

Fibre broadband is an internet connection that’s transferred through fibre optic cables underground. Fibre optic cables use thin strands of glass to transmit information at the speed of light, enabling a faster and more reliable connection.

There are two main types of fibre; FTTC and FTTP. FTTC stands for Fibre to the Cabinet. As the name suggests, the fibre optic cables go to the cabinet in the street and then copper wires connect your business/home to the cabinet. With FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) the fibre cables run directly into your home or business. FTTC is currently being phased out and replaced with FTTP or SoGEA.


How Does Fibre Compare to a Standard Broadband Connection?

Here at Yo, our Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) packages offer speeds up to 4.5 times faster than standard business broadband. SoGEA (or standard business broadband) provides speeds of up to 76Mbps*. FTTP, on the other hand, enables speeds up to 360Mbps*. Not only that, FTTP is typically more reliable than standard business broadband too.

 

What are the Benefits of Fibre?

With data travelling as fast as the speed of light, one of the main benefits of fibre is the speed. Not only that, with FTTP speed and performance are not impacted by distance or demand. The service is far more reliable. With a faster and more reliable internet connection your team can work more efficiently and productively.


Are There Any Disadvantages?

Full fibre broadband (FTTP) isn’t currently available everywhere in the UK. To find out if FTTP is available for your business, call us on 02380 516980 and one of our communication consultants can have a look for you.
