Today, we break down how you can access the forefront of internet technology and start possessing the superpower that is ultrafast broadband.
What is FTTP
Just for clarification, FTTP stands for Fibre to the Premise which means a fibre optic cable runs from the cabinets (the green metal boxes you may find dotted around your towns) straight to your home.
This differs to the existing networks which have copper cables running from the cabinet to your home. This is known as FTTC.
The range of benefits of full fibre can be found on another blog post we have.
How to get FTTP
This is all great, but how can you actually get FTTP broadband?
Well, it ultimately comes down to where network providers build their cables.
If your current copper network isn’t scheduled to be replaced by a network builder, then you won’t be able to access FTTP internet.
For a lot of rural residents, this is a particular pain point due to those towns consistently being looked over by large corporations.
It is this very reason why our work focuses on underserved market towns that deserve FTTP access as much as the larger cities.
Contact Internet Service Providers
If your address is eligible to receive FTTP, then it is imperative you contact your new provider you wish to serve you a full fibre network.
Simply fill in a contact form on their website, or call their phone number displayed on their website and speak to one of their team members.
A lot of the background work is completed by the providers. We have an entire blog post about how to switch internet providers if you are concerned!
