Our Fibre Broadband carriers utilise a number of different technologies to provide services. These vary based on a number of factors, and can be any of the following.
Fibre to the Premise or FTTP: Fibre is run directly to a customer’s home. Our fibre wholesaler needs to install hardware in your premises. We'll let you know if you need an appointment when you sign up.
Fibre to the Basement/Building or FTTB: Fibre is run to a multi-dwelling unit or apartment building, with existing internal copper wiring within the building used to connect a VDSL service (Very-High-Bit-Rate DSL). Customers connect via their modem to the existing telecommunications socket.
Fibre to the Node or FTTN: Fibre optic cables are run from the telephone exchange to a street node or pillar, then the existing telecommunications copper lines are used to deliver broadband to the home. You connect via your modem to the existing telecommunications socket.
HFC or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial: The existing HFC network, currently used for cable internet and Pay TV, to deliver internet to your property.
The good news is that the router that Uniti offer for purchase with signup support all the possible variants, so no matter what happens, we've got you covered!
