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 is used to carry fibre broadband in the last mile yet provides an uncontended (1:1) Ethernet bandwidth on top.
Unlike ADSL or FTTC broadband EoFTTC is truly uncontended, meaning you don’t have to share your bandwidth with other internet users. Normally with broadband, at peak times of the day you would see your speed drop as more people are using the internet, but with Ethernet over FTTC the bandwidth is reserved and is yours to use all of the time.
EoFTTC is very similar to EFM in the way that it is delivered, in which it utilises copper. 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 prices in just below EFM in most cases, 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 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.
