Introduction to Fibre-to-the-Business

Fifty times faster than a standard copper connection, Fibre based broadband access transmits information at the speed of light while providing you with a reliable and stable connection.

What is Fibre-to-the-Business?

Reliable, scalable and providing much higher uplink speeds than DSL, Fibre-to-the-Business (FTTB) provides fibre-based broadband access that connects to our network from a modem or router based at your business site. With our extensive fibre coverage, this product is well-suited to multi-branch businesses.

Fibre comprises speeds of 2Mbps to 100Mbps. It is a best effort service. Fibre can be used to carry public (internet) traffic or Virtual Private Network (VPN) traffic, and unlike ADSL and VDSL, no telephone landline is required to use Fibre.

For use as an internet service, Fibre can be paired with either capped or uncapped internet access.
