10Gb prices have dropped dramatically since they first become available. The demand for bandwidth is going through the roof at the moment so now is a good time to have a closer look at the top end of the bandwidth spectrum and find out if pricing is now more cost effective!
You will be surprised to know that 10Gb lines are now not rare. In the UK, the demand has grown over 250% just in the past year for 2Connect alone! A 10Gb quote can start from an industry leading £995.00 per month now which, for such a huge amount of bandwidth is incredible value!

Yes that’s right. Finally, in built up areas, 10Gb fibre ethernet lines are not just available but they are also now affordable. What was once thought of as the ultimate connection but impossible to afford is now more affordable than ever!
100Mb on a 1Gb bearer and also the full 1Gb are still the primary bandwidths that companies within the UK take at the time of writing (2020). However, times are changing. The demand for 10Gb bandwidth is now a reality and the steady uptake from what was hardly ever purchased is now turning into a product that’s in demand.
The requirement for more bandwidth for businesses will continue to grow year on year due to more bandwidth reliant applications. We can also provide 1Gb on a 10Gb bearer to give your business room to grow.
With the amount of fibre running through the UK and the amount of investment that has been spent to bring these services to you over a huge period of time, maybe now is the perfect time to start your own investment into the power of 10Gb.
This is purely down to the fact that service consumption has grown so much over the past few years and in turn, the demand for higher speeds has grown.
This has a knock on effect on the market. A product that was once known as out of reach for the majority of businesses in the UK has now become a lot more reachable.
We now rely on Cloud based applications, Unified Communications and such like with additional features are driving our need for more bandwidth. Times have changed.
Video is also another huge growth area with the influx of streaming becoming more popular by the day. One thing is for sure. The demand for bandwidth is not going to slow down any time soon which is great news for businesses as prices will have to meet requirements.
Believe it or not, the install process is just the same as with a standard leased line although it can take slightly longer. As this is the most reliable internet connection money can buy, this can not be installed rapidly. We work with all carriers such as BTnet, Virgin Media, TalkTalk Business and Vodafone to name just a few so there is no carrier that will be able to install any quicker.
Every order placed is subject to a site survey. Once the survey has taken place, we will find out if there are any excess construction charges. If not, the order will simply proceed. If there are then we cover you (dependent on the carrier) anywhere between £2800.00 and £10,000!
Leased line connectivity with such high speeds can dramatically change the way you work so even if any charges are found that we cannot cover, we will always offer flexible options and maintain our competitive price. Average install time is 65-75 working days based on 3 year contract terms and then handed over onto the core network for your business.
Whenever this amount of bandwidth was mentioned in the past, the only real usage was in data centres. As businesses now have their own internal data networks, we have seen them starting to make the move. Ethernet circuits (dedicated internet connection) have always been the connection that any UK business looks to for reliability and this speed is no different.
We are also seeing large call centres with huge amounts of hosted calling taking place making the jump. Remember, in 2025 there will be no more ISDN, no more traditional broadband so all your calls will run over the internet and if you have a lot of staff then you will need a lot of bandwidth.
Finally, this amount of bandwidth can be taken up by anybody for any reason. If its affordable and it’s going to make a difference to your business then why not? You can also start at lower bandwidths and work your way up as and when you need it. That way you future proof your business yet only pay for what you need.
