Fibre broadband (FTTC)

What BT call Infinity, FTTC stands for Fibre To The Cabinet. Instead of running over standard copper phone lines all the way to the local telephone exchange, only the segment from your premises to your local green on-street telephone cabinet runs over copper; the rest runs on high speed fibre optic cable.

This makes it much, much faster, but it still not available everywhere.
