It is no secret that businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on a good connectivity solution as data usage in the UK more than doubles every two years. A poor internet connection can quickly reduce business productivity and efficiency, ultimately impacting our economy.
The Government has hit their Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) target and 95% of UK properties now have access to this connectivity, meaning a far superior speed and reliability experience compared to traditional broadband services running wholly via copper.
FTTC connections still involve the use of the old copper network to connect a premises to its local cabinet, next generation Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) or ‘full fibre’ however, removes the legacy copper network from the equation. The capabilities of FTTP go far beyond what can be provided over existing copper-based services and is able to provide gigabit services (that's much faster than FTTC). Removing the copper portion also increases reliability and resilience, giving businesses the certainty they need to grow.
According to the Government's Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review, UK coverage for next generation Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) – or ‘full fibre’ – is currently only 4%. The Government is investing £30 billion to increase coverage to 100% by 2033 so you will have access to this service in the future, if you are not one of the lucky few who already has it. This article detailing how Openreach are investing in new technology shows just how seriously the fibre roll-out is being taken by everybody involved.

A deployment timesaver is being trialled by Openreach as it seeks to speed up the roll out of fibre. The use of a new ribbonised fibre cable is said to be five times faster than conventional cabling as it bonds individual ultrafast fibres together in a web-like pattern that allows increased packing density in a cable.
