Q: I’ve heard of FTTC and VDSL. Are they the same or different?

A: They are both parts of the same local access type. Fibre to the Cabinet means that between the exchange and the street cabinet fibre is deployed, and then from the street cabinet to a customer’s premises copper is still used. VDSL, Very High Speed Digital Subscriber line, is the technology run over the copper line to deliver the FTTC broadband service.

Q: What’s the difference between ADSL and VDSL?
A: Higher speeds are achieved with VDSL because the length of copper used is much shorter than for ADSL. ADSL uses copper all the way from the exchange whereas VDSL used copper just from the street cabinet.

Q: How does it compare to the Ethernet over FTTC?
A: Broadband FTTC is delivered over carrier shared Broadband networks. Ethernet over FTTC uses the same local access tail from Openreach but is mapped onto a carrier’s Ethernet network, which enables a higher grade of service with assured bandwidth to be delivered.

Q: Can I run VoIP over VDSL lines and achieve good quality?
A: Yes you can as we have the ability to prioritize VoIP traffic over data traffic or provide uncongested bandwidth for the whole circuit.
