10Mb is the entry point in the leased line speeds world and as standard, we offer all our customers this speed with the 100Mb bearer. The simple reason for this is firstly, it’s the same price so why would you not!
Secondly, this future proofs your business throughout the full term of the contract whether that be 1, 3 or 5 years as you can upgrade at any stage.
This speed also offers sufficient bandwidth to carry internet traffic, WAN traffic, and VoIP phone calls. An old 2Mb connection would struggle with all these.
A lot of companies are forced into upgrading to a leased line due to the fact that they will see a rise in usage. VPN traffic, VoIP and websites are becoming more and more bandwidth hungry leaving a business with only one option – Upgrade.
Certainly another benefit is if your business is using ISDN30 circuits for telephony, you can switch to a leased line and run SIP trunking/VoIP.
Money spent on rental charges for the ISDN circuits can then be saved because VoIP calls with SIP trunks are much cheaper than ISDN30 so you will have the added value of your calls package dramatically dropping in price.
Not only that, as the prices for leased lines continue to fall, this is now opening the door for more businesses to get rid of their unstable dsl connections and get the benefits of the best technology on the UK market without breaking the bank.
