SSE fibre broadband is an excellent choice if you want a no-frills broadband provider and don't care about all the extras on offer that other broadband services provide. This article will look in-depth at SSE's main broadband options: Fibre and Full Fibre, their prices, speeds, and where they are available. Let's dive in.

Can I get fibre broadband on SSE?

Although an energy firm may not be the first place you'd look for broadband service, SSE is a reliable firm, as it is a part of the enormous energy conglomerate OVO. They provide fibre broadband services with average download speeds ranging from 35Mbps to 900Mbps, giving customers uninterrupted access to the internet at good speeds.

What kind of fibre broadband can I get from SSE?

SSE Unlimited Fibre broadband packages use an FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) connection. Furthermore, their Full Fibre broadband services use a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection.

FTTC delivers broadband to street cabinets using fibre optic cables. Other cables then connect these cabinets to several residences. The closer your residence is to the cabinet, the faster your broadband speed.

Fibre optic cables run directly into your home using FTTP. This implies substantially quicker fiber broadband speeds and the opportunity for many more family members to connect to the internet simultaneously. However, FTTP is not yet available throughout the United Kingdom.
