Connectivity is often considered the fourth utility in modern business, as vital to its running as water, electricity and gas – make sure you have the best.

Fastest Speed

Leased Line

A leased line provides a dedicated, synchronous, fibre-optic connection to the internet with guaranteed bandwidths and guaranteed services levels. Not to be confused with fibre broadband, this is the best type of internet connection for businesses and is ideal for unified communications.

– Highest quality
– 99.9% availability
– 5-hour fix guarantee

Medium Speed

EoFTTC

Ethernet-Over-Fibre-To-The-Cabinet uses fibre broadband technology to provide an enhanced, business-grade internet service. It is un-contended, meaning bandwidth is unaffected by the peak usage times of residential broadband users and has a better service level than standard FTTC.

– Uncontended
Enhanced SLA
– Ethernet based

Lower Speed

EFM

Ethernet-First-Mile is an access method that delivers Ethernet protocols over normal telephone copper wiring. It is primarily used by companies who are located in areas not serviced by fibre broadband who can’t justify the cost of a fibre leased line.

– Uncontended
Synchronous
– Fixed bandwidth

Fastest Speed

FTTP

Fibre-To-The-Premises delivers fibre directly into your building, bringing speeds of up to 1Gb download and 115Mb upload. It is still a broadband service, and therefore is contended, with restricted SLA’s but does offer a much lower cost, high bandwidth alternative to leased lines.

– Lower cost
High bandwidth
– More stability than copper based broadband

Medium Speed

FTTC

Fibre-To-The-Cabinet or fibre broadband is a low-cost connection with higher bandwidths than standard broadband. The service is delivered over a fibre-optic cable to the local cabinet and then copper for the final few hundred metres meaning speeds of up to 80Mb download and 20Mb upload are possible.

– Much lower cost
Much higher upload than standard broadband
– Good choice for small businesses

Lower Speed

Broadband

The basic type of internet connection delivered over a standard analogue line. Offering reasonable speeds for a few people to use for web browsing and email but it isn’t really suitable for voice services. Widely available and with speeds of up to 24Mb download and 1Mb upload, it is a low-cost option where nothing else is available.

– Wide availability
Low cost
Basic connection

MPLS

Multiple sites that need to be connected under one network? Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks allow the transmission of various communication types over one common IP based network. Using any of the access methods above to supply connectivity into the MPLS core it provides a totally private, highly secure network that allows data to flow efficiently. Using Quality of Service (QoS) different traffic types can be prioritised to ensure the smooth flows of data.
