Ethernet over Fibre To The Cabinet (EoFTTC)

What is EoFTTC?

Ethernet over Fibre To The Cabinet (EoFTTC) serves as a bridge between dedicated Ethernet services and cost-effective broadband options, offering enhanced speed and reliability without the high expenses associated with a leased line.

EoFTTC has many businesses benefits facing speed-related issues but seeking a more budget-friendly alternative to leased lines. While FTTP (fibre to the premises) or leased lines replace copper wiring with full-fibre connections, EoFTTC leverages existing infrastructure, providing a swift fibre connection to the exchange. This approach combines the benefits of traditional Ethernet networking with a simpler and more cost-effective installation process compared to full fibre leased lines.

How does EoFTTC Work? 

EoFTTC seamlessly integrates into existing structures, using a rapid fibre connection to the exchange. While it builds upon traditional Ethernet networking, its setup is more straightforward and cost-effective than full fibre leased lines.

Benefits of EoFTTC

As businesses increasingly rely on internet connectivity, slow or unreliable lines can pose significant challenges. EOFTTC offers a solution that matches the speed and stability of a leased line without the complexities of installation and high ongoing costs.


EoFTTC provides a cost-efficient alternative to leased lines, offering speed and stability without the substantial installation expenses.

Service Level Agreements

Tailored for business owners, EoFTTC comes with robust service level agreements, ensuring a guaranteed uptime of 99.9% for highly reliable connectivity.

1:1 Contention Ratio

Similar to a leased line, EoFTTC features a 1:1 contention ratio, meaning businesses do not share their broadband with other users in the area.
