  • Not sufficient bandwidth to handle more advanced Internet capabilities
  • Speeds affected by distance from the cabinet
  • Shares bandwidth with other businesses using the cabinet
  • Not suitable for a large number of users

Fibre Optic Broadband

Fibre optic broadband comes in two variants, fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) and fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP).

  • Less effected by network sharing than ADSL
  • Allows real-time applications such as VoIP or video conferencing
  • Enables cloud-based sharing


  • Only available in specified areas of the UK
  • FTTC speed is affected by distance from the cabinet

Ethernet connections

Ethernet in the first mile (EFM) uses the Ethernet protocol to carry the Internet over standard copper wires.

EFM, with speeds up to 35Mbps, is a low cost alternative for a Leased line.

It is ideal for organisations that regularly share large volumes of data or applications between remote sites.


  • Short installation times
  • Low cost compared to other high speed connections
  • Allows real-time applications such as VoIP or video conferencing
  • Enables cloud-based sharing


  • Only available in specified areas of the UK
