Fibre to Cabinet (FTTC) technology sees the DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Module) moving from it's traditional location at the local exchange to a street cabinet in your area. Fibre is run to the enabled cabinet, and the remaining connection to your premises is run over the existing copper cables. By replacing a large proportion of the copper cables to the cabinet with fibre, it means the speeds that can be achieved are significantly higher.

Fibre to the cabinet or ‘FTTC’ is the tried and tested standard superfast home fibre broadband technology that Giant communications, offers to it’s residential customers. Fibre broadband is sent through fibre optic cables from your nearest telephone exchange, to the green cabinet on your street which is then connected to your home over traditional copper lines. The maximum download speed FTTC can deliver is 80 megabits per second with a maximum upload speed of 20 megabits per second.
