What is FTTH?
According to TechTarget, Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) or sometimes called Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) is the “installation and use of fibre optics from a central point directly to individual residences, apartments, buildings and business to provide unprecedented high speed internet access.”
The service can boost speeds up to 100 Mbps and is 20 – 100 times faster than standard Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL).
