So, what is Business Ultrafast Fibre? Business Ultrafast Fibre – commonly known as G.fast – is the fastest copper-based broadband service on the market. Essentially, it’s a supercharged Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) connection which enables end users to achieve speeds up to four times faster than traditional FTTC broadband. Previously the only way to get faster broadband speeds was to install a Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) connection, but because that isn’t available nationwide yet, this is where Business Ultrafast Fibre can help.

While a typical FTTP Ultrafast connection requires additional infrastructure to be put in place, Business Ultrafast Fibre uses much of the existing infrastructure, resulting in an easier and faster rollout. You’ll still be sending and receiving data over copper wires, but the technology enables that data to travel much more quickly, meaning Ultrafast speeds will be available to many more premises.

Sounds great so far, right? Well, it’s about to get better. Below we’ve put together a list of even more benefits and everything you need to know about Business Ultrafast Fibre…

Ideal for most businesses
Fast, reliable connectivity is essential for every business. For example, Business Ultrafast Fibre is an ideal solution for retail businesses who want to offer their customers Wi-Fi hotspots and a fast in-store browsing experience. It’s also a perfect fit for businesses that need to upload and download large files and make crystal clear VoIP calls. And with more and more of us working remotely, Business Ultrafast Fibre can also satisfy the most bandwidth-hungry households, accommodating both business connectivity needs as well as day-to-day activities like streaming boxsets and online gaming.

Now, more than ever, UK homes and businesses are relying on broadband connections as enablers for our digital lifestyles and work, and this trend is only on the rise. Business Ultrafast Fibre suits a variety of businesses who are looking for Ultrafast connectivity but can’t justify leased line and/or FTTP isn’t available in their area just yet.

Confidence in your connection

Business Ultrafast Fibre is fibreoptic delivery to the cabinet, which means Ultrafast speeds over short copper lines. FTTC promises high speeds, and is faster than the conventional ADSL connection, because of the fibreoptic delivery. As Business Ultrafast Fibre is only designed for use with the shortest, best-performing lines, speed issues become a thing of the past.

Over the last few years, we’ve invested over £40 million in our network, so that now our customers benefit from innovation that improves connectivity performance, manages network demand and delivers business-grade resiliency.

Get it in no time

Business Ultrafast Fibre can cut out lengthy setup times. It is a quicker install than a leased line and some FTTP locations and takes the same time as ADSL and FTTC. It uses the Openreach infrastructure and existing copper wire, meaning additional installation works are not required, so you can become part of the network as soon as it’s available in your area.

Ultrafast speeds

With average download speeds of up to 300Mbps and upload speeds of up to 40Mbps, Business Ultrafast Fibre service delivers the lightning-fast speeds your business needs in today’s data-hungry world of work. It’s fast enough to enable you to download large files, make crystal-clear VoIP calls, upload videos, and make Zooms and Teams calls without fear of them dropping out.

Business Ultrafast Fibre is only available to users on short copper lines (of less than 300m), meaning that if your premise can access it, then you will always get Ultrafast speeds. So if you’re looking to get superior download and upload speeds, while maintaining low overheads, Business Ultrafast Fibre could be the perfect option. You can take advantage of existing copper lines for Ultrafast download speeds, enabling more devices to use the network without suffering from congestion and slow speeds.

The Government has pledged to cover the UK in full fibre by 2033, but many of the areas that have been enabled for Business Ultrafast Fibre are likely to be areas that get access to FTTP towards the end of the Openreach rollout in many years’ time. This means Business Ultrafast Fibre will be the only viable Ultrafast product available to many of these premises for the foreseeable future.
