ADSL Max also known as BT 20th. Century Network (20CN). First introduced in 2002 to replace the dialup internet connection.
ADSL 2+ also known as BT 21st. Century Network (21CN). Roll-out began in 2008 to replace ADSL Max, a job still some way off being completed in many areas.Shetland Broadband can supply both types of ADSL nationally* with the type supplied being dependant on the status of your telephone exchange.
* With the exception of a few small telephone exchanges where ADSL was commissioned by parties other than BT under the Exchange Activate Scheme.
As FTTC becomes available from an exchange it should be noted that not all cabinets may not get a fibre connection initially.
Customers close to their exchange may be unable get FTTC as they are wired directly to the exchange (no cabinet). In some areas a new cabinet may be erected outside an exchange to overcome this problem.
Fibre To The Premises (FTTP), also sometimes known as Fibre To The Home (FTTH) is a fibre optic cable connection direct from your exchange to your premises. FTTP is nationally available but from a limited number of exchanges, where available speeds of up to 330Mbps are possible.
