Fibre For Home

Fibre to the home (FTTH), also called Fibre to the premises (FTTP), is the installation and use of optical fibre cable from a central point directly to individual buildings such as residences, apartment buildings and businesses to provide high-speed internet access.

FTTH dramatically increases connection speeds available to computer users compared with technologies now used in most places. FTTH promises connection speeds of up to 100 megabits per second mbps. These speeds are 20 to 100 times as fast as a typical cable modem or DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) connections. Implementing FTTH on a large scale would be costly because it requires installation of new cable sets over the “last links” from existing optical Fibre cables to individual users. Some communities currently have Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) service. FTTC refers to the installation and use of optical Fibre cable to the cabinet near homes or businesses, with a “copper” medium carrying the signals between the cabinet and the end users. 

Benefits of using FTTH

  • Improved performance for high-definition video streaming on applications like YouTube and Netflix. 
  • Allows for multiple upgrades without having to replace the Fibre, leading some to call FTTH “future proof.” The infrastructure surrounding the Fibre can be updated without having to update the Fibre itself. 
  • Higher speeds over longer distances than previous technologies. 
  • Better than other Fibre configurations because Fibre connects directly to residences and can complete remaining network segments with Ethernet or coaxial cable. 


Fibre to the home is named as such because the cable connects directly to the user’s home. FTTB (Fibre to the building) and FTTP (Fibre to the premises) can be used interchangeably with FTTH, because the network structure is the same and the words home, building and premises are all used to describe the dwelling that the Fibre networks connect directly to. A small distinction between FTTH and FTTB is that FTTH connects optical Fibres directly to residences, of which there may be multiple in one building. In FTTB, the optical Fibres connect to the building and then metallic cables connect to the individual units — homes or offices — inside.

FTTC, or Fibre to the cabinet, is named as such because instead of connecting directly to a building, home or premises, the Fibre optic cable connects to the cabinet near homes or businesses, where a twisted pair connection transfers the signal from the cabinet into the building to the end users. Fibre to the node (FTTN) refers to a setup in which the optical Fibre connects to the network cabinet or node and passes the signal to copper wire at that point.

UK Fibre Networks Specialise in the deployment of complex fibre networks where traditional methods of installation are not possible due to restrictions.

Rates vary according to a variety of factors. The work involved in installation and the speed you require will have the biggest effect on pricing. This means that FTTC will be the cheapest fibre option, FTTP in the middle and a dedicated Leased Line carries the highest premiums.
