What is ADSL?

ADSL - Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line.

Asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) is a type of DSL broadband communications technology used for connecting to the Internet. ADSL allows more data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines (PSTN), when compared to traditional modem lines.Call today to find the right package for your business.


Fibre is gaining greater prevalence as a means of service delivery in the UK.

FTTC, where the connection between the Exchange and street side 'green cabinets', is converted to fibre with only the last piece of wire from the green cabinet to the client premises being copper is already in widespread use. FTTP - where the last piece of copper is being replaced by fibre such that Fibre exists all the way between the exchange and client premises is also becoming more widely deployed.

Fibre broadband is better, faster and more reliable than standard ADSL internet and is delivered to homes and businesses through fibre optic cables. This system is called FTTC, or Fibre To The Cabinet. Most FTTC fibre connections offer speeds 'up to' 38Mbps (4.75MB per second) or 76Mbps (9.5MB per second).


EoFTTC is ideal for small businesses that use the internet for browsing, hosted voice (VoIP) telephony, video conferencing and bandwidth-hungry applications.

If you have up to 20 users, want a cost-effective way to enjoy the benefits of Ethernet and your business location has the required capability, Ethernet over FTTC could be the ideal solution for you.

Ethernet over FTTC offers all the benefits of dedicated fibre connectivity with high speeds and business-class SLAs, but with lower setup costs and monthly fees. This is the most cost-effective leased line option available.

HTL Telecom Limited will check the EoFTTC availability in your area and find you the best deal for your business at the lowest costs.


An Internet leased line is a premium Internet connectivity product, normally delivered over fibre, which provides uncontended, symmetrical speeds with full duplex. It is also known as an ethernet leased line, dedicated line, data circuit or private line.

A lease line comes with a 4 hour fix time, and you can choose to have a ADSL back up line with this
option too.
