FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet)

Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) is a high-speed broadband technology that brings fibre optic cables closer to homes and businesses, improving internet speeds and reliability.

In an FTTC setup, fibre optic cables are laid up to a street cabinet, typically located within a few hundred meters of the premises. From the cabinet, the connection is then delivered to individual buildings using existing copper or coaxial cables.

The primary advantage of FTTC is its ability to provide significantly faster internet speeds compared to traditional copper-based connections. By utilising fibre optics for the majority of the connection, data can be transmitted at much higher speeds, enabling faster downloads, smoother streaming, and seamless online experiences. FTTC also offers lower latency, reducing the time it takes for data to travel between the user and the internet, resulting in improved responsiveness for real-time applications like online gaming and video conferencing.

Additionally, FTTC is a cost-effective solution as it leverages existing infrastructure such as the copper or coaxial cables that connect to individual premises. This makes it easier and more affordable to deploy compared to full fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) solutions, where fibre optic cables are extended directly to each individual building. By combining the benefits of fibre optic technology with the convenience of existing infrastructure, FTTC strikes a balance between improved speeds and accessibility, making it a popular choice for upgrading broadband networks in many areas.

Advantages of Unity FTTC

Increased Speeds

FTTC offers much faster internet speeds by minimising data travel distance with fibre-optic cables closer to the premises. This results in higher transfer rates, reduced latency, and faster downloads.

Improved Reliability

FTTC’s fibre-optic cables offer high reliability, unaffected by electrical interference or degradation over distance. This ensures stable, uninterrupted connections, providing a consistent and reliable internet experience.

Higher Bandwidth

FTTC provides higher bandwidth capacity than copper, enabling simultaneous data transmission. Ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, multiple users, seamless HD streaming, and efficient large file transfers.


FTTC networks easily scale up to meet growing bandwidth demands. Upgrading cabinet-side equipment and fibre capacity is straight forward, avoiding extensive infrastructure overhauls as technology advances.


FTTC’s fibre-optic technology is future-proof, supporting increasing data demands and enabling seamless integration of bandwidth-intensive applications like VR, AR, and IoT.

Better Coverage

FTTC’s shorter distance between the cabinet and premises minimises signal degradation enabling customers further away to enjoy higher speeds compared to traditional copper connections.
