What is ADSL2+?
ADSL2+ is the traditional internet provision utilized in most UK homes and business, theoretically carrying speeds up to 24Mbit/s. Running over the copper wire telecoms network your ADSL2+ will require a PSTN analogue line to carry its service.
What is FTTC?
FTTC stands for Fiber to the Cabinet. It’s a modern broadband internet connection which, instead of using your existing copper phone line all the way from the telephone exchange to your house or office, uses a fiber-optic connection from the exchange to the “street cabinet” nearest to you. Again, FTTC would also require a PSTN analogue line to carry the service from the local cabinet to your premises.
Both ADSL2+ and FTTC are contested networks, meaning the further you are from the exchange the less likely you are to achieve a quick reliable network speed, also during peak hours of the day/years you will see your network performance effected by external demand. If you require an uncontested guaranteed service and connection, then investigate Leased Line options
