Our Scalefast FTTC product is an alternative solution for service providers who are looking for a fast and cost-efficient way to set-up their fibre broadband offering. The solution enables fibre broadband providers to virtually unbundle BT Openreach exchanges (providing access to the FTTx family) utilising SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ network for the data backhaul.

Businesses will benefit by continuing to maintain full control of their relationship with BT Openreach, whilst SSE Enterprise Telecoms manage and provide the backhaul, offering a quick set-up and flexible solution on a usage-based model. With minimal upfront CAPEX costs, broadband providers will avoid investing heavily in new exchanges and in turn benefit from the ability to scale faster than ever before.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms has one of the largest networks in the UK, spanning 20,000km, with 265+ PoPs and connectivity to over 75 commercial data centres. By accessing our extensive and high capacity core network for backhaul, businesses will become high quality local loop unbundling players.
