EoFTTC or Ethernet over FTTC is Perfect for businesses requiring low cost, private bandwidth. Our product bridges the gap between traditional broadband and Ethernet Fibre. Ethernet over FTTC uses the existing copper infrastructure that’s used to carry fibre broadband in the last mile, yet provides an uncontended (1:1) Ethernet bandwidth on top. In turn, this also gives businesses a low-latency connection that’s guaranteed to perform all year around.
Unlike ADSL or FTTC broadband, EoFTTC is truly uncontended, meaning you don’t have to share your bandwidth with other local internet users. With broadband, you may see your speed drop as more people are using the internet. This is known as contention. However, with Ethernet over FTTC the bandwidth is reserved and it’s available for you to use all of the time.
EoFTTC is very similar to EFM in the way that it is delivered, in which it utilises copper infrastructure to the premises. However, unlike EFM, EoFTTC has much higher bandwidth capabilities. The average guaranteed synchronous speeds are 15Mbps but this is burstable to the full 80/20 profile. Meaning 80Mbps download and 20Mbps upload.
This high speed and highly resilient product costs much less than EFM, so it would be the obvious choice for SMEs looking for a high-speed low latency connection wrapped in our industry-leading SLA. EoFTTC is also a relatively new product to the connectivity market. As a result, it is not highly available just yet. There are only around 6000 exchanges enabled to deliver the bandwidth necessary for this truly business-grade connection.
