Key features:

  • Provides your business with fast, reliable access
  • Excellent support SLAs
  • Fast installation
  • Powered by our partner's SDN, enabling fast customisation, changes and support

EoFTTC is provided over a single copper pair from your business premises over the short distance to the green cabinets in the street. Unlike standard broadband where the copper then continues all the way to the exchange, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet traffic travels across a shared fibre optic circuit to the exchange.

As a result, the extra distance doesn’t lead to ongoing degradation of performance, which allows access to an uncontended, symmetrical service of up to 20Mb with fixed service SLAs.

Coverage availablity can be limited, and can be more limited than Broadband FTTC as not only do the cabinets need to be enabled but the exchanges must also be an Ethernet node in the supplier’s network.

However, it's really easy to find out if EoFTTC is available for your business premises - simply get in touch with NT’s team without obligation.


Through our partner, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC) is offered nationally.

Software Defined Network (SDN): rapid customisation and support

Our partner's national network is fully software defined. This means that we can design, customise and update your EoFTTC solution without having to contact a carrier provider and wait for the changes. This gives you substantial cost savings over traditional solutions.

Through an online portal, we can control 35 different features, including bandwidth changes, VLAN resizing, QoS changes, BGP configuration, monitoring and IP Address changes. The ability for us to make fast changes to your EoFTTC configuration means we can provide a far better service than legacy carriers who have manual workflows and processes.
