Fibre or Ethernet?

Most businesses still use ageing copper-based broadband connections, which may well be adequate but aren’t fit for purpose in our new digital world. Especially after 2025 when BT will deactivate the PSTN network which currently supplies most landline telephony services. Before then, businesses will need to adopt an internet-based calling solution.

Instead, businesses should be adopting internet services that ensure lightning-fast speeds, greater reliability, security and the ability to scale connections as your business grows. There are two main technology types that will help your business overcome this challenge: Fibre and Ethernet.

While fibre and ethernet are both fibreoptic technologies, there are some significant differences between the two:


  • Speeds up to 300Mbps
  • No service guarantees
  • Quick installation
  • Symmetrical download/upload speeds (FTTP only)
  • More secure than copper broadband


  • Speeds up to 10Gbps
  • SLAs and 5 hour fix times
  • Longer lead times
  • Symmetrical download/upload speeds
  • More secure than FTTP
