What’s What?

OK back to those acronyms…


ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is a type of internet connectivity that uses existing copper wires to provide a standard level of service. ADSL2+ is an upgraded version of this technology that can offer faster download speeds.


Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) is a type of broadband that uses a combination of copper wires and fibre optic cables. It offers faster speeds than ADSL and is suitable for businesses that require faster download speeds.


Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SoGEA) is a relatively new technology that enables businesses to get high-speed internet connectivity without needing a phone line. With SoGEA, you can have a standalone broadband internet connection delivered over a copper line, making it easier and faster to set up and more cost-effective than traditional broadband and phone line packages.


Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is a fibre optic broadband option that offers faster speeds than FTTC. With FTTP, the fibre optic cable runs directly to the premises, providing high-speed connectivity.

Fibre Ethernet / Leased Line

This option is a dedicated line that is leased from a carrier. It offers symmetric service, meaning you’ll get the same upload and download speeds. You’ll be the only customer using the line, ensuring that your connection is fast and reliable.
