BT Openreach is currently rolling FTTC out across the UK’s network to improve home and businesses upload and download speeds.
The product is delivered over fibre optic cable to the local exchange (street cabinet), and from there to your property using copper cable.
An FTTC service is ‘contended’, which means the bandwidth subscribed to is shared with other customers who have subscribed to the same service. This contended nature means that performance can often be variable dependant on how many subscribers are using it concurrently, and what they’re using it for.
FTTC speeds are up to 7 times faster, however, as with ADSL2+, it doesn’t come with a Service Level Agreement (SLA), meaning if it goes down it’s fixed on a ‘best endeavours’ basis.
Download speeds are generally between 44Mbps and 76Mbps.
Upload speeds are between 10Mbps and 19Mbps.
