Optic fiber has become in recent years the preferred access route to the network by families and companies all over the world. The spread of fiber globally is exponential. Fiber optic cables, in fact, using light to transmit data, guarantee higher transmission speeds than common copper cables and with greater capacity, thus becoming a fundamental means for the daily needs of businesses and individual families. 

In Italy, the diffusion of optical fiber is continuously increasing: even if today there are still many rural areas and various urban centers that do not have this type of technology, in recent years there have been consistent and numerous efforts by many companies to extend coverage in these areas as well. 

What are FTTH and FTTC fiber

Optical fiber is a type of data transmission that uses light as a means of transmitting information: through bundles of glass cables, it has the ability to provide more reliable and stable high-speed connection than ever before. 

FTTC (Fiber to the Cabinet) and FTTH (Fiber to the Home) are both excellent options for enjoying a state-of-the-art network. 

FTTC Fiber

The fiber optic cable reaches the cabinet located on street level, called the "cabinet" from where the signal is then transmitted on a copper for the remaining journey to the user's home, also known as the "last mile". A connection via FTTC fiber offers high and more stable speeds compared to a classic ADSL line, the latter being much slower (with a maximum speed of 20 Mbps) and heavily conditioned the system characteristics and the service offered by the single provider. FTTC fiber therefore represents an excellent option for those who live in areas where the fiber is not wired up to the inside of the house. 

FTTH Fiber

In the case of FTTH fiber, the fiber optic cable goes directly to the user's home, eliminating the need to use copper as a transmission medium. This results in transmission speeds without signal dropouts or interference, ensuring an super fast and reliable internet connection. This option is the most popular among those who use the internet for work purposes or for online gaming, with latencies (i.e. the time it takes for data to be transferred across the network) reduced to a minimum. 

Benefits of switching from FTTC to FTTH fiber

The optical fiber has become more and more popular and the advantages in its use are undisputed. Furthermore, optical fiber is a technology that looks to the future, as it is able to support future bandwidth needs without the need for further interventions. 

Therefore, switching from FTTC fiber to Enel Energia's FTTH fiber means above all traveling at high speeds, without limitations due to the copper cable and reaching speeds of up to 1 Gbps (Gigabits per second) in download and 300 Mbps upload. Copper cables are also susceptible to electromagnetic interference while "pure" fiber is immune to this type of drawback, thus greatly increasing the level of reliability of the system. This ensures families can use this speed for streaming, file sharing, smart working, gaming, home automation for your home and many other technological applications.
