Ultrafast broadband is for businesses that rely on having a fast internet connection, but might not yet be ready to lease a full-fibre ethernet line.
When it comes to this tier of broadband speeds, the options are GFast Broadband and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), but what’s the difference?
GFast broadband is the new and improved version of Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC). GFast is still a copper-based broadband service, but it’s had a few key upgrades to help you get even faster connection speeds.
Just like FTTC, it uses fibre cables up to the cabinet on the street. Here’s where it differs though. Specialised equipment in the cabinet changes the frequency of the connection.
Altering the frequency increases speed through the copper cable, and that means you get a more dependable ultrafast connection. It’s perfect for businesses that are scaling up their data usage and close enough to the cabinet to take advantage.

As your business starts to rely more and more on the exchange of large amounts of data, through applications, storage, backups, file sharing and communications, a full-fibre connection is the perfect answer.
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) broadband, also known as Full Fibre, is the fastest broadband setup you can have access to. It uses fibre optic cables directly into your business, so it may require an infrastructure upgrade.
But with up to gigabit speeds available – that’s 1000Mbps – you’ll be connected faster than ever. Crystal clear video calls keep you better connected, however far apart you are. File sharing is a cinch and buffering is just a distant memory.
