There are two main types of "superfast" fibre broadband in the
UK; FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) and FTTP (fibre to the
- FTTP is the fastest type of broadband service currently
available, because your service runs through fibre optic cables
right up to your property and there is none of the interference of

'average' speeds are for your postcode when you purchase the
