How does it work?

EoFTTC (Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet) is similar to Fibre Broadband (FTTC) in that it uses existing copper infrastructure from the premises to the street cabinet and then fibre connectivity to the exchange.  However, the significant difference is that EoFTTC then delivers the traffic across the ethernet network instead of the broadband network.  

This means that unlike broadband-based services, EoFTTC can deliver an uncontended service (bandwidth is not shared with other users) with guarantees including a 99.95% uptime SLA, choice of backup options and a 9-hour return to service guarantee. 

It provides symmetrical (same up and down) speeds of up to 20Mbps and benefits from shorter installation times compared to Ethernet/Leased Lines, due to the use of existing copper lines to your premises.  Widely available in the UK, EoFTTC uses the same availability footprint as fibre broadband.
