In business, having an internet connection where ever you are is more important these days than it has ever been. We recognise this and have partnered with key regional Internet Service Providers, not only for variation of connectivity and fault tolerance, but also to offer speedy support for any connectivity issues. Being Partners with these companies gives us direct access to their support desks for fast and effective support, minimising any possible downtime and saving time for you as you have better and more important things to address than being on the phone to BT for an hour at a time when the connection fails.
Need a business connection? You’re in the right place! Please see our connection types below. For more information on what is available in your area please contact us and we will get you sorted.
EFM/Leased Lines (Ethernet First Mile) - Gives you one of the highest grade data connectivity services currently available in the UK. EFM uses bonded copper pairs to deliver Ethernet (leased-line) connectivity over copper rather than fibre. This service offers fast, reliable connectivity with the added resilience of knowing that if there is a fault with one line then connectivity will be retained on the others. This is like a leased-line but for a fraction of the cost with similar grade support to ensure and guarantee uptime.
FTTC stands for Fibre to the Cabinet - It's one of two ways in which next-gen fibre optic broadband is being delivered to homes and businesses in the UK. FTTC in a nutshell is much easier and cheaper to deliver en masse than its counterpart FTTP or Fibre to the Premises (sometimes called FTTH or Fibre to the Home). This is the preferred low cost solution for business or home if it is available as it delivers speed with low cost outlays.
SDSL (Symmetric digital subscriber line) - Provides symmetrical, fully uncontended connectivity, with unbeatable customer support for a fixed fee from the most extensive SDSL network in the UK. Our business SDSL is ideal for small businesses with sophisticated requirements such as VoIP, centralisation of systems and servers, high volume email usage and multi-site networking.
ADSL / 2+ / AnnexM - Your upstream data speeds determine how much time it takes for everyday tasks like sending email or sharing photos. As we share more of our lives (and photos!) with friends and family on the Internet, we place higher demands on our upstream speeds. This is usually the preferred solution if FIBRE is not available as it is much the same cost but far less performance.
Higher upstream speeds are also good for businesses—allowing you to send files to clients or other offices faster. Better upload speeds also improve videoconferencing quality and help staff working from home.
Annex M allows dramatic increases in upstream data speeds. Real world speeds are usually around 1.6 to 2.2 Mbps—sometimes even twice as fast as standard ADSL2+!
