FTTP is Fibre To The Premises. Unlike ADSL and FTTC, FTTP does not use a copper phone line, it uses GPON, (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) which is optical fibre to the premises. You do not need a telephone line for FTTP.
It is faster than FTTC and does not lose speed over distance. The speed you order is the speed you will receive, currently up to 330Mb/s, however, faster speeds may be available in the future.
New FTTP installations require an engineer, however migrations or second installations may not require a visit. Unlike FTTC, FTTP installations are all-day appointments.
