Welcome to Ethernet over Copper

Thank you for visiting We strive to bring you valuable information and services related to business Ethernet in the range of 1 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps

What is Ethernet over Copper?
Ethernet over Copper originally described a family of WAN networking services that also fall into the category of Metro Ethernet services. What set Ethernet over Copper, or EoC, apart is that these services are provisioned over twisted pair copper telco wiring. This is the same wiring that is used to bring in T1 lines and multi-line telephone services. Nearly every business is already wired with a multi-line binder cable, which dramatically reduces the cost, time and effort to establish Ethernet over Copper service. The term "Ethernet" means that EoC uses the same popular Ethernet protocol that runs on nearly every business network now.

Coaxial Cable Copper Broadband Offers Higher Speeds
EoC is easy and inexpensive to install, thanks to the use of existing copper pair telco wiring. However, speed is generally limited to 1 to 20 Mbps, as bandwidth falls off greatly with distance from the central office. Another copper-based service, cable broadband, has advanced greatly in recent years with bandwidths over 100 Mbps using DOCSIS 3.0 modems and even 1 Gbps using the newer DOCSIS 3.1 modems. At these speeds, cable rivals fiber optic services at a much lower cost. Cable does tend to be a asymmetrical shared bandwidth service to support these lower prices as opposed to the traditional symmetrical dedicated bandwidth of legacy telco services.
