Future-proof your portfolio with Ethernet over FTTP

Part of our Superfast GEA portfolio.

Offer the speed and reliability of full fibre

We now offer Ethernet over FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) access on both layer 2 Ethernet and layer 3 Direct Internet Access (DIA) solutions. It’s all part of our constantly evolving Ethernet access portfolio.

What is it?

Ethernet over FTTP is a full fibre connection from the premises to the nearest Ethernet node.


Ideal for: Smaller offices and sites, satellite locations and remote workers, especially where download capacity is a priority.


  • Download speeds up to 1Gbps with a range of access options.
  • Connected to our Ethernet platform, separate to our FTTP Broadband platform, carrying only business traffic.
  • Use Ethernet over FTTP access for layer 2 Ethernet solutions like Etherflow Connected (E-Line) and Etherflow Dynamic (E-LAN), or also for layer 3 internet access like DIA.
  • 99.977% target circuit availability and seven-hour fix time.
  • Faster, simpler installation than Etherway fibre access.

Growing our reach to enable and support an all-IP future

We’re committed to growing our FTTP coverage across the UK and connecting this to our 21CN Ethernet platform for our Ethernet solutions.

Along with Openreach, we’re investing to increase our coverage to business premises, so you can meet the changing needs of your customers as we transition to all-IP. 


By 2024, we expect our coverage to reach around 41% of UK business premises, with 10,000 new ones enabled each month.
