Fibre to the premises (FTTP) is a broadband technology that provides very fast internet speeds. It delivers high speed broadband internet, television and telephone services by being wired directly to the premises or home rather than to a cabinet that services the area using fibre optic cables.
What is FTTP Broadband?
Traditionally, internet connections used copper cabling or coaxial cables which are susceptible to interference from other electrical devices and even the weather. FTTP uses a type of ethernet cable made up of one or more fibre optic cables. Fibre optic cables support both long distance and high speed reliable transmissions as a result of being designed to use light pulses. Immune to electromagnetic interference and being less susceptible to environmental damage FTTP ensures a consistent performance regardless of adverse conditions.
What Are the Benefits?
Perhaps the biggest advantage of FTTP is its unmatched speed. Typically, FTTP offers download speed plans ranging from 12 Mbps up to 1,000 Mbps (1Gbps), however, it is capable of going even faster. FTTP has a very high data carrying capacity which as a user enables increased download and upload speeds. Online meetings, large file transfers, high-definition video streaming and real time online gaming can all be participated in and enjoyed without having to encounter any lag or buffering issues.
With the virtually unlimited bandwidth FTTP offers, streaming 4k or 8k videos, using virtual reality (VR) applications or connecting multiple devices simultaneously is a smooth, uninterrupted online experience. Scion perform the necessary connectivity checks and advice to ensure a premium service.
