Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) is a fibre optic cable delivery medium that provides Internet access directly to a user or groups of users. It is cheaper than a Leased Line and normally operates at speeds suitable for most businesses.
Rather than reach your business via the green cabinet at the end of your street, FTTP travels directly from your internet provider. Unlike FTTC broadband, FTTP uses all fibre optic, making it the fastest type of fibre on the market. In fact, it can reach speeds of up to an impressive 1Gbps.
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) normally costs between £60 – £70 per month upwards to around £250 per month depending on the speeds and the delivery method.
If you work from an FTTP enabled building, the cost will be towards the lower end of the scale however, if you require an “on demand” service the costs are likely to be between £130 – £250 per month depending on the speeds you choose.
Ideally you’d capture the likelihood of a premises move before placing your leased line order as this will have an impact on the recommended carrier.
If a move is required part way through a contract, a charge may be applicable depending on how long there is left on the contract and the location of the new site. It’s best to speak to your account manager to find out how the land lies for your specific case.
Bandwidth can be increased to meet your changing needs without limit during a contract term but can only be decreased once.
No, the router is supplied open and with no port restrictions.
There are a number of factors that can impact the time it takes to implement FTTP so while we indicate that it will take on average 40-50 working days, in reality this will depend on the outcome of any site surveys we conduct and whether any works are needed that will require the input of outside agencies, such as local councils or landlords.
The good news is that as we manage the provisioning process ourselves. Your dedicated account manager along side our provisioning team will be able to keep you updated on the progress of the order makes its way through the process up until connection.
If your building is already FTTP enabled, the service can be supplied much quicker and we normally quote 16-20 working days.
