…Dedicated bandwidth, guaranteed availability
Leased lines have traditionally been highly expensive and the domain purely of Enterprise businesses. With the general improvement of the UK infrastructure, and the availability of high speed broadband, the cost of dedicated lines has also been drastically reduced.
Why would you consider a dedicated Ethernet line? Increased speed, reliability, support and improved productivity are just some of the benefits. You may have an ADSL circuit with a few MB’s of download and half a MB upload or if you’ve already made the move to fibre, anything up to 80MB over 20MB. You may still be experiencing contention issues though, particularly if you’re one of many on the business park.
Your Ethernet circuit is yours, to do with as you please. Typically you don’t have to worry about contention and you’ll get a synchronous download/upload. In doing so file transfer, streaming, VoIP services can be vastly improved. More workers can be added to the network and more voice seats can be accommodated as your business grows.
Products like National and Metro Ethernet circuits, EFM (Ethernet in the first mile) and Ethernet over FTTC offer smaller businesses the opportunity to add Ethernet connectivity to their office at a vastly reduced cost and will suit those that still need to keep a careful eye on outgoings.
Ethernet services typically deliver speeds from a few MB to 100MBps meaning there’s a solution for any sized business and as you grow you can add greater bandwidth along the way.
