UK businesses are embracing super-fast fibre broadband services, according to service provider Entanet.

The firm has reported greater than expected demand for its fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband services, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

With 53 per cent of fibre customers being new to Entanet, it is clear that companies are willing to switch broadband provider in order to access faster speeds.

Stephen Barclay, Head of Sales at Entanet, said: "While we strongly advise partners to check connections that are eligible for a re-grade as their first line of potential for FTTC sales, the percentage of new customers taking the services has surprised us."

Earlier this week, Ofcom raised concerns about the uptake of fibre broadband services among UK consumers - offering a competing view on the early success of fibre broadband services.

The media regulator said that just 0.8 per cent of households have adopted BT's 40Mb FTTC broadband services to date, despite the firm's ongoing £2.5 billion rollout plan.
