FTTP (Fiber to the Premises)

FTTP (or Fiber to the Premises) is a communication delivery method that relies on the use of optical fibers instead of traditional copper. This fiber runs directly to the premises (or customer’s location) from the main office of the provider or it can be used to connect an entire office building or other public venue to the main office. Through the use of FTTP, customers can receive the highest possible internet transfer speeds available today.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About FTTP (Fiber to the Premises)

Although FTTP is not available in all regions and can be more costly than other forms of network connections, SMBs that have the option to make the switch can benefit from faster speeds, more secure transmissions, and more durable lines that do not need to be replaced every five years as with traditional copper lines.
