PCL – Provider of IT and Communication solutions for your business.
Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC), sometimes known as Fibre Broadband or Infinity, is the fastest internet speeds that a telephone line can support. FTTC means that a fibre cable is run from the Exchange to the cabinet, meaning that only the cable from the cabinet to your premises is delivered by copper cabling. Having a short copper cable run means less deterioration of the signal over distance, giving a faster speed.
FTTC is a great option for smaller businesses, giving a faster and more cost effective internet service than ADSL. Giving downstream speeds of up to 80Mb. FTTC is also a great option for small remote offices or as a backup service to a Leased Line. PCL offer a range of Fibre Broadband packages to suit your requirements.
